Infante feeling pretty good about right elbow

DETROIT -- Royals second baseman Omar Infante prepared for the second game of the season on Wednesday with good vibes about his right elbow.

"I don't feel anything while I'm throwing to first, about 20 balls or something like that," Infante said. "In batting practice, I feel it a little bit, like a pinch, but in the game I feel good."

Infante figures the adrenaline kicked in during Monday's season opener, a 4-3 loss to the Tigers, to mask any discomfort caused by his elbow bone spur.

"I've got two of those things," offered third baseman Mike Moustakas. "It's just from throwing a baseball so much. It just hurts to throw it, but you get used to it after a while. You learn not to throw so much. But he'll be fine. He's been playing this game a lot longer than I have."
