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.

    Oh boy! As if losing Manny Banuelos and Jose Campos to Tommy John, Michael Pineda to shoulder surgery and Dellin Betances to in-effectivness weren’t enough.

    The Yankees this year seem hapless all the way up from majors down to the minors. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that at least Rafael Depaula and Jose Ramirez would make it through the season unscathed.

    OMG, the DOOM! is infectious. Run, kid, Run!

    Also, Hensley!

    (Geez, I’m gonna have to start thanking the guys for our daily dose of Frying Pan awesomeness at this rate.)

    The Yankees have prospects?

    Not a problem, the Yankees will just buy their way out of…oh right, George ‘winning is everything’ Steinbrenner is no more.

    In his place are his sons who care about the bottom line.

    Welcome to reality Yankee fans…and last place (for the foreseeable future)
