Surgery for ARod

NEW YORK (AP) - Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is going to have surgery Monday to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee, keeping him out of the lineup for four to six weeks.

Before Saturday's game, New York manager Joe Girardi revealed the injury to the leg Rodriguez uses to push off while swinging.

An MRI on Friday showed a slight tear in the cartilage.
