The Yankees confirmed on Monday afternoon that Alex Rodriguez will have hip surgery in January to repair a torn labrum and bone impingement, and to correct a cyst.
The procedure will take 4-6 months of recovery time, meaning A-Rod can already be ruled out for the start of the 2013 campaign and could be absent until late June. It's a tough blow to the Yankees, who owe the 37-year-old third baseman a whopping $114 million in salary over the next five seasons. They're sure to trade for or sign a third baseman within the next couple of weeks.
tough loss. but ARod has been missing a good amount of games for while now.
even once he does return, what would one expect from him?

what do the Yankees do now?
the Yankees could be in trouble? they now are likely going to need new people for 3B and catcher.
