New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said it's possible third baseman Alex Rodriguez could miss the entire season while recovering from hip surgery.

Cashman said "there's no guarantees in this stuff" that Rodriguez will be able to play this year.

Rodriguez, 37, had surgery on his left hip last week. The team said the rehabilitation time was expected to be six months, which would keep him out until the All-Star break.
