Omar Infante has yet to return to the field for the Royals, but he is in the lineup for Sunday afternoon’s game. He will play designated hitter. Infante has not played the field since the Cactus League opener on Feb. 27 because of inflammation in right shoulder. Infante wants to play second base on Monday.
"That’s the hope," manager Ned Yost said. "We’ll see how he feels. He’s feeling better."
The team continues to downplay the severity of the injury, and Infante has completed throwing drills. But there is little reason to risk aggravating the condition this early in camp.
