I’ve had a few emailers asking about Alex Rodriguez and a second potential hip surgery, since it had been originally said that he might need a follow-up procedure to the one he had back in spring training. Remember, though, that A-Rod’s doctor said during the playoffs that he did not believe Rodriguez would need that second procedure since Rodriguez has healed so well.
Meanwhile, David Waldstein did a great piece about another medical procedure – the one on Hideki Matsui’s knees – that was meaningful to the Yankees this season. It’s interesting to hear that Matsui may well need another operation to keep playing, though a doctor seems to think he could still be a part-time outfielder if a team wanted that. As we know, the Yankees – if they keep him – see Matsui as a DH-only.
