KANSAS CITY -- There's still nothing decided on the return of second baseman Omar Infante, who took batting practice on Monday as he recovers from back inflammation.

"It's not really the rotation [while swinging] that's bothering him, it's bending over where he still feels it a little bit fielding ground balls," manager Ned Yost said.

Infante, out since May 7, might go out on a Minor League rehabilitation assignment before getting back into the Kansas City lineup.

"Yes, he could for a day and get him six or eight at-bats maybe," Yost said. "But we haven't discussed it."
