A-Rod to begin Yankees season on disabled list

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Alex Rodriguez will start the season in what’s become a familiar place: the disabled list.

The New York Yankees said the third baseman will have surgery on his left hip, an injury that could sideline him until the All-Star break and may explain his spectacularly poor performance during the playoffs.

A 14-time All-Star and baseball’s priciest player at $275 million, Rodriguez has a torn labrum, bone impingement and a cyst. He will need four to six weeks of physical therapy to strengthen the hip before surgery, and the team anticipates he will be sidelined four to six months after the operation.
