Alex RodriguezAlex Rodriguez says he isn't hurt -- but the team seems to be concerned about his surgically repaired right hip.

Rodriguez will have the hip examined during the team's next home stand, starting Friday against the Mets.

Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long suggested to Rodriguez that he have the hip, which Rodriguez had surgery on in March 2009, looked at.

"Kevin's been working with me for a long time. He just felt that we want to make sure that we dot our I's and cross our T's and are diligent and think big picture," Rodriguez told reporters, including Brian Costello of the New York Post.

Manager Joe Girardi said Rodriguez has had checkups before, and Rodriguez said he'll continue to have it checked the rest of his career.

"I think you just want to make sure he's OK," Girardi said.

Rodriguez had two homers in Tuesday's win, but was hitting .171/.236/.232 in his previous 21 games. For the season, he's now hitting .250/.340/.492 with eight homers and 24 RBI.

I totally agree that he will end up with 30 plus HR's and over 100 rbi's and bat between 290 and 300. The guy is not producing like he was in his prime but he is still a very productive player. He earned the salary for putting up huge numbers prior to his contract.

arod's washed up, but still making 25-30 million in easy cash for batting .250---his agent should wear a cape with a big S.

............

And you should sit in a corner wearing a conical hat with a big D.

He is not washed up and he is hitting .265 and will be up near 300 at the end of the season. He also has 8 home runs and 24 RBI with 25 runs scored and is also 6 for his last 11 in the last 2 games. He has a current streak of 30 home runs and 100 RBI that nobody else has ever done so explain how he is washed up. I would take 30 home runs and 125 RBI and have people call it a down year any time.

A-Rod has an arthritic hip. Of course I'm just guessing here...but this could be the end of his career.
