Torn labrum in the hip? Michal Rozsival is one player who can relate to Alex Rodriguez and the decision he faces on whether to have surgery for the injury. The Rangers defenseman played with the issue last season and had surgery in the offseason.
“I’m not really into baseball,” Rozsival said. “I’m pretty sure he’ll be alright.”
Rozsival went to Marc Philippon, who has a practice in Colorado and is the same doctor that Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez went to see this week.
“It’s one of the joints with the most pressure if the whole body on that joint so you have to be real careful with it in recovery,” Rozsival said. “The usual time is four to six months.”
The defenseman has played all season for the Rangers and said he felt fine now, even if there is an occasional twinge.
“It’s not painful but its just different feelings in the joint,” Rozsival said.
