Royals | Omar Infante considering surgery

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 14:03:31 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (elbow) is considering undergoing surgery on the bone spur in his right elbow, which has caused him pain and inflammation for more than two years. If he decides to go under the knife, he could be sidelined for six to 12 weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Infante would only opt to have surgery if cortisone shots prove to be ineffective. He received a shot last season and had another one last week. Infante's ability to remain healthy in previous years was one of his biggest assets, even if his stats were nothing to write home about. Right now, he projects as nothing more than roster depth in AL-only fantasy leagues.

Royals | Omar Infante heading for MRI

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 13:13:33 -0800

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (elbow) is heading for an MRI exam with continued soreness in his right elbow. He's been dealing with elbow issues since last year. He was supposed to start at designated hitter for the spring game Friday, March 6, but he instead will have tests on his arm. "It's not ligament. That leads you to believe that it's a spur in the back of the elbow that's inflamed," manager Ned Yost said. "Is an injection warranted to calm it down? Did a spur break off? We just don't know. We have to send him out for an MRI and see exactly what is causing the pain." Infante doesn't have pain when he hits, and he's been able to take grounders and full batting practice without issues.

Fantasy Tip: The 33-year-old Infante's greatest contribution to fantasy players is his consistent playing time, but even that might be in question if there is something seriously wrong with his elbow. Nothing about his profile stands out for fantasy categories. Consider him middle infield insurance in AL-only leagues.
