MLB Injury News:
Last week it was reported that free agent outfielder Ichiro
Suzuki enjoyed his time with the New York Yankees so much that he was willing to wait for an offer from the club before making a decision on where to sign
this offseason. Now, according to Suzuki’s agent, the player and his
representation “don’t care what the Yankees do,” reports George A. King III of
The New York Post.
"At the beginning we talked a lot but since that time,
zero,’’ agent Tony Attanasio said of discussions with the Yankees. “As far as
we are concerned we don’t care what the Yankees do. We have had conversations
with multiple clubs. If we see something we like he will go through with it."
The Yankees have spent the first part of their offseason
focusing on pitching, specifically re-signing their veteran arms. The club has
since checked several to-do’s off its list, including agreements with Andy
Pettitte, Hiroki Kuroda and Mariano Rivera. Now New York is expected to shift
its attention to position players.
Outfield is one of the Yankees’ areas of need, as Suzuki and
fellow free agent Nick Swisher are no longer under contract. Last season Ichiro
hit .322/.340/.454 with 13 doubles and five home runs over 227 at-bats after
being traded to New York.

Rodriguez is expected to need a second surgery in the coming days and will miss, at minimum, a piece of the 2013 season. Still, the hope is that the procedure will allow A-Rod to return as a full, successful player as early...
The New York Yankees got some bad news in the midst of winter meetings that are designed to normally improve a team for the next year. Their All-Star third baseman, Alex Rodriguez, will likely miss time at the start of the 2013 season because of a lingering hip issue he was battling toward the end of the 2012 season.
According to Joel Sherman of the New York post, Alex ...

Alex Rodriguez will have surgery on his left hip and will miss the start of the season and possibly the entire first half.

During the general managers' meetings last month, Brian Cashman was asked about his plans for a player recovering from surgery.
"In fairness to him and the significant injury he had, we're going to put him off to the side," the Yankees GM said of starting pitcher Michael Pineda, who is coming off shoulder surgery. "His rehab will take him into late May, June...
I'm looking at a reflection of myself, or should I say, of Yankees, 2012?Is it true that A-Rod is turning the other hip? When he does come back ( think September, 2013 ) will he be his usual svelte and speedy self?Will he be ready for the double-headers and 11 game trips to the coast?Are we looking to pay $26 million to watch him limp around? Again?I do understand that this...
