Disclaimer: Do not take this as gospel yet. The Yankees haven’t said anything, and the author of the report, Enrique Rojas, was wrong earlier this week, saying the Dodgers and Manny had an agreement in place before they actually did. The news this time is not good, so here’s to hoping he’s wrong again. According to A-Rod‘s brother, the beleaguered third baseman will miss the first month of the season as he rehabilitates from surgery which removed a cyst from his hip (translated version here). We’ll update this as official information rolls in.
