by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Royals second baseman Omar Infante is still being bothered by shoulder issues, according to the Kansas City Star.

Despite the issue, manager Ned Yost has not shied away from using Infante as a starter in the playoffs. After the season, Infante plans to have the injury examined. "When the year is over, we’ll have to check everything," he said. "I want to come back next year to feel good. This year has been very tough for me."
