Yost: Ben Zobrist to soon start at 2B over Omar Infante for Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It appears all but certain that light-hitting Omar Infante will be the odd man out of the Royals lineup when Alex Gordon returns from injury.

As expected, Ned Yost has stated that Ben Zobrist will play mostly second base when Gordon is ready, per the Kansas City Star.

Infante has not found his stride at the plate all season. The result is a .217 average, which if maintained would be the lowest of his career.

The versatile Zobrist, who can play all over the field, will likely continue to give others occasional days off as the Royals cruise to the division title.

Yost: Royals 2B Omar Infante (back) ready to play if needed
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ned Yost has declared that the ailing back of Royals second baseman Omar Infante is improved and that he's ready for action, but he remains out of the lineup Thursday in Boston.

"No reason to push it right now," Yost told MLB.com.

The addition of hot-hitting Ben Zobrist makes pushing Infante back unnecessary. In fact, the light-hitting Infante could find himself benched permanently in favor of Zobrist once Alex Gordon returns from injury.

Infante owns a weak .216/.232/.298 slash line on the year.

Royals scratch Omar Infante from Tuesday's contest
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Back spasms caused the Royals to scratch infielder Omar Infante from Tuesday's game against at Cincinnati, reports The Kansas City Star.

"He's got back spasms, back locked up on him a little bit," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "Couple of days, [we'll] go day to day with it."

Infante was replaced at second base by Ben Zobrist. Infante is hitting .145 with one home run and seven RBI in his last 18 starts.

2B Omar Infante hitting eighth for Royals
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Royals second baseman Omar Infante drops down to the eighth spot in the lineup for the team's contest against the Indians, the first time since July 1 that Infante has hit in that position. 

Since then, Infante has jumped around the Royals' lineup, most recently spending a stretch hitting seventh. Infante is only hitting .218 in July, but he does have eight hits in his last 10 games.
