A-Rod surgery scheduled for Monday

According to Bryan Hoch, Alex Rodriguez will have arthroscopic hip surgery on Monday, putting him off the field for six to nine weeks.

Dr. Marc Philippon, who originally diagnosed A-Rod, will perform the surgery in Vail Colorado.
"The goal here is to allow Alex to rehab rapidly in a safe manner," Dr. Philippon said. "The approach we're using is much safer than letting Alex play the way he is now."
This is definitely a big blow for the Yankees.  However, the media spotlight may be a little less bright on the Yankees in the first couple of months, which could take off some of the pressure.  Everyone has been wondering how will A-Rod respond to all of the PED talk this offseason, but now they will have to wait.
