A-Rod Gets Advice From Gaborik

from Michael Russo of the Star-Tribune,

On Thursday in Vail, Colo., Gaborik was sought out by Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, who last Monday had a torn labrum in his hip surgically repaired, like Gaborik, by surgeon Marc Philippon.

“He just wanted to know what to expect, how I’m feeling, what I’m doing as far as treatment—pretty much everything,” said Gaborik of his 15-minute meeting with A-Rod. “[St. Louis Blues winger Paul Kariya] and me just suggested to stay there for a while because it’s the best place to be to [rehab for hip surgery].”

Gaborik said it was great to meet such a star.

“Everybody knows A-Rod,” Gaborik said, laughing. “Nice guy. Huge, huge guy. He doesn’t look like that on TV.”

Kariya and Gaborik had surgery an hour apart Jan. 5 and rehabbed together all winter. “It was fun to be around him and learn some things from him,” Gaborik said.
