A-Rod’s surgery goes fine; expected back by September
The Yankees announced Monday that Alex Rodriguez has undergone arthroscopic surgery to correct a meniscus tear in his right knee. The team said that the procedure went as expected and there were no complications.
Dr. Lee Kaplan performed the surgery at the University of Miami (Fla.) and will oversee the three-time American League MVP’s initial rehabilitation in Miami. Rodriguez is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks, but could return for the Yankees’ September stretch drive.
