The New York Yankees may not only be stuck with Alex Rodriguez and his massive contract, but they may on the hook for the next five years with a player who may have a surgically repaired damaged hip so bad that he is never even going to be a shell of his former self ever again.
So much for trading A-Rod to any team before his contract expires. Yankees fans can cross that one off of their list.
Rodriguez had surgery to repair his right hip, but New York is concerned that it is still not quite right, and that it simply never will be. According to sources close to the team, the Yankees fear that Rodriguez’s hip injury is going to be a grave concern going forward, and possibly throughout the rest of his playing career, however long that may be with this latest issue.
