By now, we have all heard the news on Alex Rodriguez’s latest injury.

Buster Olney of ESPN broke the news that A-Rod will need surgery on his left hip to replace a torn labrum.

Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports announced that with the surgery, the 36-year-old will miss anywhere from four to six months.

Plus, if and when A-Rod does return, is he even going to be an effective player in the Yankees lineup?

What does Yankees’ GM Brian Cashman do about filling the hole A-Rod has left for them?

With that kind of bat out in the lineup, he needs to make a move.

Here are five options Cashman can look into for third base.
