Brother-Rod: A-Rod to have surgery, out 10 weeks

Alex Rodriguez will need to have the cyst on his hip surgically removed, according to his brother. The recovery and rehab will take about 10 weeks.

On Thursday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters he did not have any information regarding Rodriguez.

"I have not heard anything yet," Girardi said. "I will try to go and find out what's going on."

Yankees spokesman Jason Zillo would neither confirm nor deny the report, according to the New York Daily News. "When we have information we'll give it to you," Zillo told the Daily News. "We're not giving out any information right now."

The development also means that A-Rod will not be able to participate with the Dominican Republic team in the World Baseball Classic.

"It's a big blow for the whole family. Alex is destroyed," Joe Rodriguez told ESPNdeportes.com. "We were all very excited to see him play with the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic.

Hi, Cody Ransom.

The Yankees don't need to make a move here, I think. At this point, he's not out for the season, so it's not like when they had to think of something fast when Aaron Boone got hurt playing basketball. It's an obvious big blow, but at least they signed Mark Teixeira.
