A-Rod Will Need Hip Surgery, Miss Ten Weeks


The drama surrounding A-Rod never ceases: Joe Dunand, Alex Rodriguez’s older brother, is telling news outlets that the slugger will undergo surgery to remove a cyst in his hip, which will take ten weeks to recover from. That would mean he couldn’t suit up for the Yankees until early May in the best scenario, after missing nearly 30 games. If you’re looking for a silver lining, though, at least the United States won’t have to face his intimidating bat in the World Baseball Classic, starting today. [ESPN]
