A-Rod to try rest and rehab

Update - 4:15 p.m.: More from Peter Abraham:

UPDATE, 3:51 p.m.: Surgery, if needed, would knock him out four months.

The cyst was large and the hope was having it drained will lessen the stiffness Rodriguez felt.

They’re going to cut down on his time in spring training in the hopes he can get through the season.

This is a similar injury to what Mike Lowell had. Cashman refused to say what degree the tear was.

UPDATE, 4:07 p.m.: Cashman just said A-Rod will need the surgery at some point. The tear won’t just heal.

They’re hoping he can get through the season then have it. So this could be an issue all year.
Just have the surgery now. Don't be ridiculous.

Original post:

Brian Cashman
just addressed the media regarding Alex Rodriguez.

This from Peter Abraham:
Yankees GM Brian Cashman just said Alex Rodriguez has a torn hip labrum and cyst.

They’re trying rest and rehab. The cyst was drained. The hope is he’ll keep playing.
Didn't they try this with Jorge Posada? I understand it's not a shoulder, but there's no sense in risking further injury, right?
