Breaking Prospect News: Ty Hensley Out 2-3 Months After Hip Surgery

Well ain't it just Prospect Day here at AB4AR?  Too bad this post isn't of the positive variety.

George King of The Post is reporting that 2012 1st round draft pick Ty Hensley will have surgery today to fix a bone impingement in his right hip and is expected to miss 2-3 months recovering and rehabbing.  There were reports that Hensley was dealing with a pulled abdominal muscle early in Spring Training and as Mark Newman so plainly put it, "it turned out this was the cause."

Hensley, a top 10 Yankee prospect in pretty much every list out there (including the AB4AR Top 30) caused a bit of a stir last year after word came out of an "abnormality" being discovered in his pitching shoulder during a physical, although that turned out to be a non-issue.  This latest injury news will surely add concern about Hensley's ability to stay healthy long-term, but with him likely being targeted for another short-season league anyway in 2013 it's not the biggest loss in the world.  Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, we should still be able to see him on a mound this year.
