TAMPA Fla. (AP) - Yankees manager Joe Girardi has confirmed that reliever Joba Chamberlain dislocated his right ankle on a trampoline.

Chamberlain was hurt while playing with his son Thursday at a local spot that had trampoline and related type of equipment.

"I know he did it on the trampoline, that he was bouncing,'' Girardi said on Saturday.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman visited Chamberlain in the hospital and said the 26-year-old pitcher told him he could be released from the medical facility this weekend.

Chamberlain had surgery Thursday night. The 6-foot-2, 240-pound righty was working his way back from elbow ligament replacement surgery and was expected to return in June.

Cashman did not have the results Saturday morning on Chamberlain's MRI exam and CT scan, which were done on Friday.

There is no timetable for Chamberlain's return.
