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.
