A-Rod has tear in knee, may have surgery

NEW YORK -- Alex Rodriguez has a slight tear in the meniscus of his right knee, and may have surgery that could keep him out of action for a month.

An MRI exam Friday revealed the tear, and Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Saturday morning that Rodriguez would likely decide later in the day whether to have surgery now or to play through the injury and have surgery after the season. Rodriguez told reporters after the Yankees' 5-4 win over the Rays that he'll get a second opinion before deciding.

Rodriguez has gone a career-high 85 at-bats since hitting a home run, a stretch that dates back to before he first hurt his knee in June 19 game against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

"I just don't think he has the drive in his back side to be the power hitter he can be," Girardi said.

Girardi said the ultimate decision on whether or not to have surgery now would be up to Rodriguez, but he also suggested that having surgery now might be best.

"Players have [played through similar injuries], but I'm not sure how productive they can be," Girardi said. "It's unpredictable."

Rodriguez has hit .321 in the 14 games since hurting his knee, but 14 of his 18 hits were singles (the other four were doubles).

Braves third baseman Chipper Jones has been playing with a meniscus tear for nearly two months, but Jones told reporters Friday night in Philadelphia that he may now opt for surgery.

"It's not getting any better," Jones said, according to MLB.com. "The [cortisone] shot didn't do anything for me."

Rodriguez announced Friday that he would skip the All-Star Game. If Jones opts for the surgery, he would miss the All-Star Game, too.
