A-Rod & Surgery
July 11, 2011 by staff
A-Rod & Surgery, Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez will undergo surgery today in Miami to repair torn meniscus in his right knee and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, the team said. Rodriguez will probably be in time for the last month or so of the regular season. Before Saturday’s game, manager Joe Girardi revealed the hamstring injury while Rodriguez used to push rocks. Rodriguez, who turns 36 this month, has already pulled out of Tuesday’s All-Star game. The knee set at Wrigley Field on June 19, and the tear in the meniscus has stopped on the bases. He is batting .359 with 10 RBIs in his last 16 games, but he has looked much more like a singles hitter.
After 3000: Yankees SS Derek Jeter, celebrated with family and friends after reaching 3,000 hits on Saturday, “but not too much because I do not recover as before.”
All-Star court: Despite the exodus of 16 players from the list of stars during the last days (figure, 4C), the head of the union, Michael Weiner said the massive withdrawals are more about the “circumstances” that a indication that the players do not care about the game, ESPN.com reported. “Overall, I think the players are happy to participate in the game,” said Weiner.
At the beginning? Angels ace Jered Weaver said his manager, Mike Scioscia, who will start for the AL All-Star Game on Tuesday, informed him. “It’s very exciting,” said Weaver (11-4, 1.86 ERA), who said Scioscia got a call from the manager Ron Washington of the Rangers.
Gold drawback: Some of the balls used in Home Run Derby tonight is made with a panel that is infused with 24 karat gold and leather used once a batter is down to its last out in each round. The balls have a retail value of 149.99 y.
Garvey fired? The Tampa native Dodgers Steve Garvey shot for his attempt to buy the team that helped with the title of 1981 World Series, according to various media. Garvey, 62, worked in community relations. He had discussed forming a group with former Dodgers pitcher Orel Hershiser that aims to buy a professional sports franchise.
Three balls hook: Angels DH Bobby Abreu was allowed to take first on a count of three balls in the Angels’ 4-2 win over the Mariners. The same thing happened to Seattle on July 2 against San Diego. The umpire Gerry Davis apparently lost the trail to have Felix Hernandez in Abreu, and Seattle’s booth did not protest when Abreu trotted to first on a count of 3 and 1. Last week, Cameron Maybin San Diego took first in a field of 2 and 2 and finally scored the only run in the defeat of the Mariners 1-0.
Sox-Orioles expulsions Orioles reliever Miguel Gonzalez and Buck Showalter were ejected in the sixth inning against the Red Sox after Gonzalez threw a pitch behind David Boston, Ortiz, who did not charge the mound the way he did Friday, a move that sparked a benches clearing fight. Sox starter Kyle Weiland and manager Terry Francona were ejected in the fifth inning after Weiland, making his major league debut; he said something after hitting Vladimir Guerrero.
Beckham has hand in Rays win future
PHOENIX – The Rays Tim Beckham doubled in the tying run, and then the Yankees Austin Romine singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth for three runs, leading the U.S. team 6-4 in the World Future All-Star Game with the best minor league prospects. Oakland Grant Green was selected MVP after starting the rally in the eighth with his second double.
