A-Rod Surgery Successful

Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

The Yankees said that the All-Star third baseman was operated on in Miami by Dr. Lee Kaplan. Rodriguez is expected to be out four to six weeks. Kaplan will oversee the early stages of Rodriguez’s rehabilitation in Miami.

Rodriguez, who turns 36 later this month, is hitting .295 with 13 home runs and 52 RBIs this season. But the three-time MVP with 626 career home runs has not connected since June 11 and has gone 85 at-bats without a homer, his longest single-season drought.

He tweaked his knee at Wrigley Field on June 19, and the tear in his meniscus has slowed him on the bases. He is batting .359 with 10 RBIs in his last 16 games.
