Kansas City Royals

Bats: R, Throws: R

Tigers beat the Royals 8-6 Thursday afternoon despite a 2 RBI day from Omar Infante and key run scoring hits from Alex Rios, Drew Butera and Kendrys Morales.

Fantasy Impact: Omar Infante continues to struggle into August posting 11 hits in his last 50 plate appearances. Infante is not a viable option in most standard 10 and 12 team leagues at this point.


Omar Infante send two runs home with a hit in the 5-1 Royals victory over the Astros Sunday. Infante also struck out three times in the game. The Royals take on the Indians tonight in Cleveland. Game time is 7:10 (ET).

Fantasy Impact: Omar Infante has hit a dismal .183 over the past 14 days. He has just eight hits in his last 43 appearances and should remain on fantasy benches unless he snaps out of this.


Omar Infante was hitless in all four plate appearances against the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Infante is in the midst of a deep slump that has seen his batting average drop forty points in a two-week span. With only three hits in his last ten games, there is no reason to own Infante in any fantasy league.

Infante went 3-for-5 tonight against the Indians and looks to be fully recovered from the groin strain that kept him out of four games the previous week.

Fantasy Impact: Infante has typically hit for a good batting average but doesn't provide much power or take a lot of walks. He is nothing more than an injury replacement or fill in if your regular second baseman has a day off.

Omar Infante suffered a left groin strain while running the bases on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ned Yost hopes Infante can play as soon as Tuesday but a trip to the DL has not been ruled out. Christian Colon will fill in for Infante at second base.

Time is running out for 2B Omar Infante to prove his fitness. The veteran second baseman is struggling with inflammation in his right elbow, for which he has already received a cortisone shot.

Fantasy Impact: Look for Christian Colon to get the 2B gig if Omar Infante doesn't make it. He is a patient hitter with a bit of speed, so could help with AVG & SB.
