Infante feels 'good,' rehab stint on horizon


DETROIT -- Omar Infante was walking around the Tigers' clubhouse prior to Tuesday's game with a smile on his face. After his sprained left ankle forced him out of a rehab game at Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Infante says it feels much better.

"I'm working on my ankle in the gym and making it stronger and moving [it]," Infante said. "I feel good."

Infante says that he ran on Monday before taking grounders and participating in batting practice on Tuesday.

"I would not be surprised if by the end of the weekend that he's out on injury rehab," president/general manager Dave Dombrowski said, "but it has lingered longer than we thought it would."

If all goes well with Infante's rehab, he may be able to rejoin the Tigers during the team's upcoming 10-game road trip beginning next Monday in Cleveland.
