Machado has torn labrum

Alejandro Machado has been diagnosed with a torn labrum and will seek a second opinion, Twins general manager Terry Ryan said. Machado had an arthrogram Tuesday, which is similar to a magnetic resonance imaging exam. Dye is injected into the problem area to get a better picture of the joint.

The news comes one day after Machado was unable to drop his arm to throw without pain while doing infield drills.
