article imageYankees GM Cashman reports Alex Rodriguez could miss 2013 season

By Marcus Hondro     Jan 28, 2013 in Sports
New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman has let it be known his all-star third baseman's hip injury might turn out to cause even more heartache than has already been suggested. Last week the Yankee boss said Rodriguez could even miss the entire 2013 season.
“I been saying all along: ‘Is it possible he might not be able to come back this season?’ Sure, it’s possible,” Cashman said. “It’s a serious surgery. But there’s no indication he won’t be back by the summer. At the same time, when you’re dealing with this kind of thing, there are no guarantees.”
Cashman added, however, that he had a recent talk with the 37-year-old Rodriguez's physical therapist and got an optimistic report. "He said Alex is exactly where he should be,” the GM said. “There haven’t been any changes or anything unexpected.”
Yankee stars undergo surgery
Cashman now has Kevin Youkilis, who'll be 34 in March, to play third while they await Rodriguez's return; Youkilis can also play first. In addition to concerns about Rodriguez after his surgery, other star Yankee players who've had surgery since they last played and are working toward a return are Derek Jeter, C.C. Sabathia and Mariano Rivera.
