Joel Sherman is reporting that A-Rod is headed for hip surgery again. The problem is, it won’t be on his originally damaged right hip, but on his left one. Recovery time is expected to be 3-6 months and Sherman reports the Yankees are targeting June for his return.
So two bad hips and a contract that pays him $114 million through the 2017 season. Way to go Hank! Obviously, the Yankees need to find a replacement for Alex. In fact, I think this will probably be the impetus to move him to DH permanently. Considering the free agent options, my expectations are for a Cashman trade.
