NEW YORK (AP) - Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says it's possible that third baseman Alex Rodriguez could miss the entire season while coming off hip surgery.
Cashman says ``there's no guarantees'' that Rodriguez will be able to play this year.
Cashman made his remarks Friday on WFAN radio in New York.
The 37-year-old Rodriguez had surgery on his left hip last week. The team said the recovery time was expected to be six months, which would sideline the star slugger until the All-Star break.
Cashman said Rodriguez and his doctors are working hard to get him back on the field. Cashman said that in a best-case scenario Rodriguez should be back. But Cashman also said there was a chance A-Rod wouldn't return.
The Yankees signed free agent Kevin Youkilis during the offseason to play third base while Rodriguez is out.
