Detroit Tigers second baseman Omar Infante was spotted walking around without crutches, but he remains in pain and will likely miss some playing time, telling MLive.com "I'm really sore," and that he will "probably miss a couple games."
Infante left Wednesday's game after a hard slide from Blue Jays center fielder Colby Rasmus. X-rays came back negative, but the team stated he has a bruise on his shin. He was walking around with a noticeable limp. Manager Jim Leyland confirmed that there was no structural damage in his knee.
Several Tigers players and fans were unhappy with Rasmus' slide, including Infante himself.
Infante is hitting .309/.340/.447 on the year with six home runs in 309 plate appearances. Ramon Santiago will take his place at second base for the time being.
