New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez had a successful surgery to his left hip today and is expected to be released from the hospital Thursday according to ESPN.

According to his doctor, Dr. Bryan Kelly of the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, the recovery for such a surgery is six months, which would make his return at about July.

The third baseman had surgery to repair a torn labrum and impingement in the hip socket. It is the second surgery on Rodriguez’s hips, as he had to get it repaired in 2009.

The 38 year old Yankee third baseman has $114 million and five years left on his contract.
