Omar Infante 2B KC 4 weeks ago

Infante is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, per Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star.

Infante hasn't missed a game since April, so he'll get some much-deserved rest while Christian Colon takes over second base. He could probably use it too given how bad he's slumping. In his last 40 plate appearances, he's reached base just four times with no extra base hits.

Infante will bat second Saturday against the Cubs, Matthew DeFranks of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.

Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer will both sitting against a lefty (Tsuyoshi Wada), affording Infante a rare opportunity in the top third of the batting order. Infante is batting just .238/.248/.338 in 157 plate appearances this season, but he's 10-for-39 (.256 average) with six doubles against left-handed pitching.

Infante went 3-for-5 Saturday with a double, a triple and an RBI.

It's his third straight game with an extra-base hit. Infante's .250/.263/.370 line on the season isn't impressive, but he should continue seeing regular at-bats for the Royals.

Infante (groin) will return to the lineup Friday against the White Sox, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

Infante has been sidelined each of the last four days because of the groin issue, but will finally rejoin the lineup Friday. Christain Colon will return to the bench, as Infante will likely retake his spot as the club's everyday second baseman.

Infante (groin) remains out of the lineup Thursday, Fox Sports Kansas City's Matthew DeFranks reports.

He was able to run Wednesday but was only feeling about 60 percent healthy, so it may be a few more days before we see Infante back in the Royals' lineup. Christian Colon will get the start again at second base Thursday.

Infante (groin) was able to run Wednesday and reported feeling at about 60 percent, Matthew DeFranks of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

Infante also reported feeling much better Wednesday than he did Tuesday. He's still being held out of the lineup and may be out until the weekend, but it's an encouraging sign that the infielder is making progress and appears to not be in any danger of having to hit the disabled list.

With Infante out of the lineup for a second straight day, Christian Colon will get another start at second base. Infante may not be out for much longer, as an MRI came back clean, and he said he expects to be available by the end of the week.

Infante (groin) reported everything came back clean after undergoing an MRI and expects to be back later in the week, Matthew DeFranks of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

Infante suffered a groin strain in Sunday's contest, but it appears that he'll be back after only missing three or four days. Manager Ned Yost indicated that Infante could be available on an emergency basis Tuesday but is expected to take batting practice and should be able to return to full health by the end of the week.

Infante (groin) will not be placed on the DL and could be available Tuesday, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

Infante was forced out of Sunday's contest with a left groin strain and will be held out of the lineup Monday, but it appears he avoided a more serious ailment. If he is available Tuesday it will likely be off the bench, but at this point a return to the starting lineup later in the week seems possible.
