When A-Rod had hip surgery before last season, he opted for a less invasive option that allowed him to return to the team as soon as possible - with the thought that he would probably need a second surgery after the season to finish the job. However, in September, we learned that he might not need it after all and that has been the hopeful outcome since. Well, today, it's official: he will not need the second surgery, reports ESPN's Andrew Marchand.
