Yankees P Joba Chamberlain To Leave Hospital

New York Yankees relief pitcher Joba Chamberlain will leave a Tampa-area hospital Sunday, according to ESPNNewYork.com.

Chamberlain dislocated his right ankle Thursday in Tampa while rehabbing after Tommy John's surgery.

"He was hopeful that he could be back on the mound by July, is what he said that they had told him," general manager Brian Cashman said, according to the report. "That's what he told me the doctors are telling him."

There was speculation that the injury could be career-threatening, but the Yankees remain optimistic.
