The New York Yankees will play the first half of next season without third baseman Alex Rodriguez.  General Manager Brian Cashman says “A-Rod” will have arthroscopic surgery to correct a torn labrum, bone impingement and cyst in his left hip.

Rodriguez will do four-to-six weeks of pre-rehabilitation before the operation in January.  The three-time MVP previously had surgery on his right hip in 2009.  Rodriguez hit .272 with 18 home runs last season but struggled in the playoffs, being benched or lifted for a pinch-hitter on several occasions.  The 37-year-old has five years and 114-million-dollars remaining on his contract with New York.
