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.
"NYY just announced Alex Rodriguez will undergo a left hip arthroscopy to repair a torn labrum, bone impingement and the correction of a cyst"—Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) December 3, 2012
Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports announced that with the surgery, the 36-year-old will miss anywhere from four to six months.
Now the Yankees have another hole in their lineup and in the field at third base.
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?

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