Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez  will have surgery on his left hip, according to New York Post  writer Joel Sherman. Rodriguez, who previously had surgery on his right hip, is expected to miss to the first two months of the 2013 season.
Rodriguez apparently was playing in the playoffs with a torn labrum. Mark Feisand of the New York Daily News  tweeted that Rodriguez’ surgery will take place in January.
With Rodriguez facing rehab and shortstop Derek Jeter  still on the mend from his surgery, the Yankees  are likely to make a move to shore up the left side of the infield. Ken Rosenthal at Fox Sports  indicated that candidates include former Red Sox  shortstop Marco Scutaro , who played 2012 for the Rockies before being traded to the Giants  and helping them win the World Series , and Jeff Keppinger , who played for the Rays in 2012 and is on his way back from a broken right fibula.
