Alex Rodriguez is flying to Colorado today to meet with hip specialist, Dr. Marc Phillipon, for precautionary purposes. Pending examinations done today, he could still play for the Dominican Republic in the W.B.C., according to Brian Cashman.
This video features an ESPN medical analyst going in depth on the cyst injury that Rodriguez may or may not have.
Joe Girardi informed us today that Rodriguez went through some pain in the hip during last season.
"Alex expressed a little stiffness. There was really no pain," Girardi said on Wednesday, a day after the 33-year-old slugger played for the Dominican Republic in a tuneup for the World Baseball Classic. "We just thought it was best because he had some minor issues last year with it. We'll have a better idea after today with what the course of plan is."
From everything that I have heard so far, I'm beginning to worry less and less about this injury. I will keep you posted as this story develops.
