|Omar Infante agrees with manager on Monday return |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/7/14) Royals second baseman Omar Infante is targeting a March 10 return to game action after missing time due to a shoulder problem, according to the Kansas City Star. He said Friday his shoulder is "feeling better."
That return date coincides with that of manager Ned Yost, who has been bringing Infante along slowly.
|Royals still concerned with Omar Infante's shoulder |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/6/14) Royals second baseman Omar Infante won't play in a minor-league spring game on Friday because manager Ned Yost is still concerned with the recovery of his inflamed right shoulder, the Kansas City Star reports.
"I'm watching him throw, and I just don't really know that he's ready to cut one loose yet," Yost said.
Infante has been able to complete throwing drills in the recent days and could see the field as early as Monday.
|Omar Infante collects two hits, two runs Wednesday |

(3/5/14) Serving as his team's designated hitter Wednesday, Royals second baseman Omar Infante went 2 for 4 with one double, one walk and two runs in his team's 6-5 win over the Diamondbacks.
Infante has battled shoulder soreness over the past week, making Wednesday's two-hit performance his first action since his debut on Feb. 27. He's looking to make a good impression after signing a four-year deal with the Royals this offseason.
|Omar Infante hoping to DH Wednesday |

(3/4/14) Royals infielder Omar Infante is hoping to serve as the team's designated hitter Wednesday.
Infante is dealing with shoulder soreness. The injury hurts when he tries to throw, so the team will bring him along as a hitter first. Infante hit .318/.345/.450 in 453 at-bats last season.
|Omar Infante dealing with shoulder stiffness |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/1/14) Royals infielder Omar Infante was held out of workouts Saturday due to stiffness in his right shoulder. Manager Ned Yost told The Kansas City Star he does not think the injury is serious, while Infante thinks he will need at least a couple days rest before he is healthy enough to resume throwing.
|Despite a pair of 10-10 seasons on his major league resume (which are eight years apart), Omar Infante does essentially one thing really well that puts him on the map in Fantasy: he makes contact. Fewer than 10 percent of Infante's at-bats last season resulted in a strikeout, and that enabled him to post his third .300-plus season over the last five years. Had he not missed more than a month with a sprained ankle, Infante would have cracked the top 15 of second basemen in Fantasy value. That might not set owners' hearts aflutter, but it does speak to Infante's value as a low-end option in standard mixed leagues. Having moved on from the Tigers to the Royals, Infante is expected to settle into the second spot in the batting order. That's a nice bonus for points leagues owners, as he'll get more plate appearances than he did with the Tigers, who usually slotted Infante into the lower third of the order.
