Alex Rodriguez walked out of his grievance hearing Wednesday after arbitrator Fredric Horowitz refused to order baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to testify. He later showed up at the WFAN studios to talk to host Mike Francesa about it.
Dr. Bryan Kelly of the Hospital for Special Surgery, who operated on A-Rod on Wednesday, said last week the extent of cartilage damage was a concern and could not be determined before the operation.
Alex Rodriguez had surgery on his left hip Wednesday and is expected to be sidelined until after the All-Star break.
A-Rod needs to find a way to stay on the field. And while surgery might help, I can’t feel with any certainty that he’ll return to being a significantly productive player.
The doctor who will perform surgery on Alex Rodriguez’s ailing left hip isn’t shocked that the Yankees’ slugger slumped mightily throughout the playoffs. In fact, he’s surprised A-Rod was “able to play at all with a hip that looked like that.”
