ESPNEWS: A-Rod has torn labrum

I found this report while searching on Twitter.

As posted on KFFL:

ESPNews reports New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hip) has a torn labrum in his hip, according to his agent, Scott Boras.
And here's a read-up of the acetabular labrum from Wikipedia:
The acetabular labrum (glenoidal labrum of the hip joint or cotyloid ligament in older texts) is a ring of cartilage that surrounds the acetabulum (the socket of the hip joint).

Its function is to deepen the acetabulum, making it more difficult for the head of the femur to slip out of place (sublux).
Brian Cashman will address the media soon, so I will post any updates if necessary.
