A check-up on A-Rod’s hip (and heart?)

While the hot stove continues to churn and the Yankees – like all teams – work on adding players from outside their organization, they are also keeping tabs on players already on the roster to be sure that everyone is getting (and staying) healthy.

Along those lines, Alex Rordriguez has returned to Vail, Colo., where his surgically-repaired right hip was examined, according to sources. The sources said the examination was “routine” and that Rodriguez is fine – he recently was at David Ortiz’s charity golf tournament in the Dominican Republic. That said, it’s worth knowing that Rodriguez will have to continue to monitor the hip as his career continues.

Remember, it was originally believed that Rodriguez would need two surgeries to correct the problem in his hip but a few months ago his doctor, Marc Philippon, revealed that A-Rod had recovered so well that the second procedure likely wouldn’t be needed.

Now, as for Rodriguez’s heart? We’re not much for the gossip pages here at the LoHud Yankees Blog, but I was tipped off to this story and thought it was worth posting, if only because we all know how important Kate was to A-Rod being “in a good place” during his amazing October.

I know, I know – I thought they’d be together forever, too.
