The "hybrid option" was mentioned in the previous post. It was such a good idea that Alex Rodriguez has decided to go ahead and go under the knife.
The arthroscopic hip surgery will cause him to miss six to nine weeks, and he will then need more surgery in the offseason.
The decision eliminates the option of Rodriguez treating the injury with rest and rehab and playing through the season without surgery. This operation will not completely correct the hip. More aggressive surgery would have sidelined Rodriguez three to four months.I think this is the best way to handle this injury. Hopefully it'll be six weeks and not nine weeks, but at least it's not four months at this point.
"The surgery that will just repair the labrum tear right now would shorten his rehab," Cashman said. "Then following the conclusion of the season going in and repair the remaining aspects that need to be repaired."
