MLB News: Yankees’ A-Rod Out 4-6 Months Following Hip Surgery

USATSI_8426293_154224518_lowresThe New York Yankees will be without slugger Alex Rodriguez for a considerable amount of time with the superstar third baseman undergoing off-season hip surgery according to Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com:

Alex Rodriguez is expected to miss most of the first half of the 2013 season because of a second hip surgery that is expected to take place in January.

This is not good news for the storied MLB franchise with $114 million still invested in Rodriguez through 2017. Rodriguez is coming off back-to-back disappointing seasons and has shed a lot of doubt in New York on whether or not he can get back to form as one of the league’s best players at the plate.

The soon-to-be 38-year-old finished last season with a batting average of .272 with 18 homeruns and 57 RBI. These numbers are pale in comparison to years past with the Yankees and seem to signify a drastic decline that may ultimately end with his departure in New York.

With Rodriguez’s absence for the first half of the 2013 season, the Yankees will start to consider options at third base. There’s been talk of a possible trade with the San Diego Padres to acquire third baseman Chase Headley, but it’s uncertain the level of interest or whether or not the Yankees are willing to ultimately make the move.

As for free agency, the third baseman market is all that strong this off-season. Few players are attractive enough to catch the eye of general manager Brian Cashman and company, but they might not have much of a choice with Rodriguez on the shelf for the first half and potentially the entire season recovering from hip surgery.

Although there have been no immediate moves to fill the huge void left at third baseman with Rodriguez out for the next four to six month, the Yankees’ front office will likely be making moves to fix the problem.
