Does manager Ned Yost expect Infante to be an everyday player?
"Yeah," Yost said. "Everybody's feeling something. We've just gone through six long weeks of Spring Training. Our players all play a lot and, from now to the end of the season, they're going to be dealing with things that they have to play through."
Infante and shortstop Alcides Escobar have yet to play together defensively in a game, but he dismissed that as an issue.
"No, no. We practice together a lot during BP," Infante said. "We practiced today and we'll do it tomorrow, too. We'll be OK."
Infante is starting the season against the Tigers, the team he played for in 2013.
"It's a nice city and a good stadium to play in," Infante said. "And they've got a good team."
