SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Now that Omar Infante is back at second base, it's shortstop Alcides Escobar who has a stiff throwing shoulder.

As a result, the Royals still haven't gotten their middle-infield combination together in a Cactus League game. Escobar was scratched from Tuesday's game against the Dodgers because of "minor soreness" in his right shoulder, the club announced.

Infante was at second base for the second straight day after not playing in the field for 10 days because of a stiff right shoulder.

Neither is scheduled to play on Wednesday against Oakland. Infante will get a planned day off, and Escobar will rest his shoulder.
