GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The time might be approaching for new Royals second baseman Omar Infante to have his first in-game pairing with shortstop Alcides Escobar.

Infante, after playing the first Cactus League game, has been out with a stiff throwing shoulder. He could be back in the lineup on Tuesday or Wednesday.

"We'll see how he does today," manager Ned Yost said on Monday. "He'll go out and make some throws."

Escobar hasn't been in a game yet. He went to Miami where over the weekend his wife Francys gave birth to a boy named Massimiliano.

He is expected to return in the next day or so.
