A-Rod won't have surgery. His cyst was drained, but he has a torn hip labrum. Supposedly they're going to try "rest and rehab." Surgery would keep him off the field for 4 months, which is why they would rather see if it could be fixed just by rest and rehab. Cashman said that surgery will be needed at some point, since the tear won't heal on its own. Whether he'd have surgery now, or after the season is unknown. Either way, its not good. All this info from PeteAbe's blog. If A-Rod is out for the year, I would love to see Chone Figgins man third base for the Yanks. He's awesome.
