A-Rod needs surgery, will be out 10 weeks?

Alex Rodriguez by Lauren Murphy.On Thursday, Alex Rodriguez’s agent confirmed that he has a torn labrum in his hip, as well as, a cyst. In an interview with ESPNdeportes.com, the Yankees third baseman’s brother, Joe Dunand, said that he would be having surgery to remove the cyst and will, consequently, be out for 10 weeks. The surgery is reportedly scheduled for Monday.

However, Brian Cashman, who is the Yankees general manager, has stated that they are hoping that Rodriguez will not need surgery because it would sideline him for four months.

“We’re collectively trying to figure out what is best to do. We don’t want to rush into it. We want to digest it,” said Cashman.

The injury will mean that Rodriguez will be unable to compete in the World Baseball Classic with the Dominican Republic team.
