But Yankees general manager Brian Cashman admitted Friday there's a chance his third baseman could miss the entire season.
“I think because [of] the serious nature of the surgery and the condition that he’s trying to recover from, you know, there is that chance," Cashman said when asked if A-Rod might miss the whole season (via CBS New York).
This isn't, however, the most likely scenario.
“Best-case scenario, yeah, he should be back,” Cashman said (via CBS New York). “Worst-case scenario is he won’t be back or there might be something between.”
