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.
