Omar Infante leaves Royals' game with groin injury


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4:51 pm ET) Royals second baseman Omar Infante injured his groin while running the bases in Sunday's game. 

Infante left for a pinch runner after doubling in the fifth inning. The team announced that he had suffered a left groin strain and is day-to-day.


Micah Johnson hasn't been on base enough to show White Sox his speed


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:45 pm ET) White Sox rookie second baseman Micah Johnson is off to a slow start, hitting .190 and looking shaky in the field.  

Manager Robin Ventura plans to leave him on the field, though. "All of it becomes an evaluation mode, especially when a guy, it’s his first time," Ventura said, per the Sun Times. "But you also have to give him a little leeway. It’s his first time going through it, and he has to be able to adjust, and there’s probably a slight over-effort part for him right now of trying to prove things instead of just playing the game. I think he’s better off when he’s just playing the game and he’s not sitting there thinking he has to prove himself."

Johnson also hasn't had the chance to show off his speed, one of the factors that earned him a spot in the lineup to start the season. He had 84 steals in the minor leagues two years ago.

"The opportunities need to be there," Ventura said. "Micah hasn’t really been on as much as you like. You can only do so much with that. You have to have the right opportunities to be able to do it. Do you expect more of those? I would, of them getting on base and being able to steal."

Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis thriving early this season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:43 am ET) Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis has ripped through the first two weeks of the season with a bang, hitting .333 in 45 at-bats. Manager John Gibbons loves the way the rookie is playing this season.

"He's got the complete game, he really does," Gibbons said. "He was such a good hitter in spring training I thought to myself: 'This kid will hit some home runs in his career.' But he's shown a lot more power than I expected."

Gibbons is handling things at the plate like an old veteran, according to Gibbons.

"One thing he's got that's advanced for a young guy is he's got a great approach at the plate, he doesn't chase out of the zone much. He's got the ability to foul off tough pitches to stay alive and a lot of guys can't do that. And he handles breaking balls, at least fouls them off, and that's a big part of it. He stays alive and if they make a mistake he doesn't miss it. He's been very productive."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Robinson Cano on baserunning blunder: 'I didn't pay attention'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano acknowledged he wasn't paying attention during Wednesday's base-running error in Los Angeles, per MLB.com.

"I didn't pay attention to the game," Cano said. "You don't want that to happen. There was nothing I could do after that. … I'm human. I make mistakes. But those are the kind of things I shouldn't let happen again."

Cano thought the bases were loaded when Logan Morrison drew a walk to re-load the bases. He began walking home before catcher Yasmani Grandal threw to third baseman Juan Uribe to tag him out for the second out of the sixth inning. Mike Zunino grounded out for the third out, ending Seattle's rally in the sixth. Cano's club were swept by the Dodgers on Wednesday.

After the game, Cano called it the biggest blunder he has had in a game in his career.

"I would say yes. I felt in that situation the dumbest guy in the game," Cano said. "I wish he'd thrown it into left field. Those are the things that make you embarrassed, being in the game so long and those little things happen in a game. I told the manager, 'It's my fault, I should have been paying attention.'"
