Joba just released from hospital, according to person there. Came out in wheelchair. Said “good” when asked how he’s doing.

That’s the good news. Here’s the bad:
#Joba getting out of St. Joe’s Hosp today. Six weeks in cast. No weight on ankle. A boot after that. Long road back. Still good news

Chamberlain and the team are both optimistic that he could return sometime this summer, according to the New York Post, but given the fact that he was still coming back from Tommy John surgery, that seems optimistic:
Doctors have said he will not be able to do any weight-bearing activity for anywhere from six weeks to three months, which also will impact his recovery from Tommy John surgery he had last year.
