Ty Hensley, who was the Yankees’ first-round pick last June, is expected to miss at least 2-3 months after undergoing surgery to repair a right hip impingement.

According to George King of the New York Post the same doctor who performed hip surgery on Alex Rodriguez will do the honors with Hensley, who had his signing bonus dropped from $1.6 million to $1.2 million due to a previous shoulder “abnormality.”

Drafted 30th overall out of an Oklahoma high school, Hensley appeared in just five rookie-ball games after signing.

Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports that Orioles third baseman Tim Beckham underwent core muscle surgery in Philadelphia on Thursday and is expected to miss the next six to seven weeks.

Beckham, 28, was originally diagnosed with a strained left groin. He sustained the injury during spring training and reaggravated it on Monday against the Indians.

Beckham was off to a slow start, batting .179/.247/.262 in 93 plate appearances. Danny Valencia and Jace Peterson should handle the hot corner while Beckham is out.
