New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez will have surgery on his left hip in January. A-Rod is expected to be out of action 4 to 6 months.
A-Rod, who will turn 38 next July, struggled mightily at the plate during the 2012 post-season. So much so that Yankees skipper opted to pinch hit for A-Rod in the late innings or sat him out of the lineup altogether.
Rodriguez, who has 647 career homeruns, had arthroscopic surgery on his right hip prior to the 2009 season.
While I think A-Rod will play again, his best days are behind him and no PED can bring him back.
