NY Yankees Star

Major Trampoline Injury

Threatens Career

3/23/2012 9:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NY Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain's comeback has been crushed ... thanks to a gruesome trampoline accident at a kid's play center yesterday.

Chamberlain was jumping with his son at a center in Tampa, Florida ... when he came down wrong on his right foot ... causing severe damage to his ankle.

There are conflicting reports about the severity of the injury -- some media outlets are saying the bone was protruding through the skin and there was lots of blood. Others say Joba simply twisted the ankle.

Either way, Chamberlain had surgery last night ... and the MLB star is currently recovering.

It's just another setback for Joba ... who missed almost all of last season  with an elbow injury.

They didn't write something in the contract so it doesn't pay off if he is being "STUPID IN PUBLIC"?

I know you're trying to report all sides of the story, TMZ. But, even a child knows a person doesn't need surgery for a twisted ankle. Duh!

I fear Mr. Chamberlain's years with the Yankee's are over. He hasn't had a decent year for a while due to shoulder problems, and his contract for 1.67 million is non-guaranteed. The only good news is that the clown car NY Mets will probably pick him up about $2 million, because the Mets are idiots.

Well, if he TWISTED his ankle, he wouldn't have had surgery, would he? Hope all goes well & a speedy recovery.
