TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alex Rodriguez has a torn labrum in his right hip, but the New York Yankees think he can avoid surgery.

A cyst in the hip was drained Wednesday, and the third baseman will miss the World Baseball Classic, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday.

The three-time AL MVP will be treated conservatively in the hope of avoiding an operation. Cashman said that if surgery is needed, Rodriguez would be sidelined for four months.

Cashman said the team hopes the cyst was the cause of stiffness
that had bothered Rodriguez and caused him to see a specialist.
