Alex Rodriguez will have knee surgery tomorrow, and expected recovery will take about 4-6 weeks, reports Anthony McCarron of the NY Daily News.

This was the smart move to make. It’s very important for this club to have a healthy Alex Rodriguez in the lineup going down the stretch. There’s no need to take any chances with him.

The big question so far this season is: What’s wrong with Phil Hughes? After his third poor outing last night, the Yankees have placed Hughes on the disabled list with what the Yankees are calling a “dead arm.” It’s not the first time we’ve heard of this. Just last year, that’s what they claimed Javier Vazquez had. Bartolo Colon will take Hughes’ spot in the rotation, and RHP Lance Pendleton takes his place on the roster. It was originally reported that Phil would be sent down to Triple-A Scranton, but those reports were false. Let’s hope Phil can figure out whatever it is that’s wrong with him.

Update: 5:33PM ET: New York Post reporter, Brian Costello just tweeted: “Sorry for the wrong info on Hughes. My source got it mixed up. My apologies……Sounds like Hughes may have talked his way out of a trip to the minors”

From Wallace Matthews of ESPN NY:

DETROIT — The Yankees are expected to place right-handed relief pitcher Alfredo Aceves on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday due to lingering pain in his lower back.

Aceves, who experienced back pain in spring training and felt it again while pitching Saturday at Fenway Park, suffered a setback while throwing a bullpen session at Comerica Park before the Yankees’ 5-4 loss to the Tigers Monday night.

“Ace isn’t doing too good,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said before Tuesday night’s game, which was rained out and rescheduled for Wednesday as part of a day-night doubleheader. “He felt fine until he actually tried to do the movement. He felt it yesterday in the bullpen and we had to shut him down.”

Aceves, who is 3-0 with a 3.00 ERA in 10 relief appearances, said he believed his problem was a bulging disk.

“When I try to throw, it pinches me,” he said. “I’m trying to play but it’s not in my hands. You don’t want to pitch that way.”

With this injury, the Yankees are really running short of reliable arms in the bullpen. If anything, Aceves was considered one of the stronger guys come out of the pen. Other than Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera, who else can the fans count on? From what I’ve seen this season, the answer is nobody.
