A-Rod's surgery date revealed

The Yankees have just announced that Alex Rodriguez's hip surgery will be on January 16. In case you missed it this morning, Joel Sherman of the New York Post spoke with the doctor - Dr. Bryan Kelly - who examined A-Rod's hip and it was a very enlightening article. It's kind of amazing that Alex was able to walk, let alone attempt to play baseball while suffering through this injury.

And here's a link to my colleague Brien's piece from earlier today which explains in greater detail the extent of Alex's injury.

Alex will more than likely be out until after the All-Star break in July so maybe this means he will just be getting into the swing of things (awful pun intended) down the stretch.

We can dream, can't we?
