Infante scratched from rehab game due to ankle

CLEVELAND -- Omar Infante was scratched from his rehab start for Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday night with soreness in his previously sprained left ankle. Whether it's a day-to-day situation or something that sets him back a little longer remains to be seen.

Infante was originally in the Mud Hens' lineup at second base, where he was expected to play seven innings. However, he was scratched at the last minute. According to a Tigers spokesperson, Infante felt "a little soreness" in his ankle, so he was taken out of the lineup as a precaution.

Infante had a setback in the ankle when he played second base in his previous rehab assignment last month for Class A West Michigan, but he felt the issue while running the bases. He has felt fine taking ground balls and hitting, and he went 1-for-5 with an infield single as the designated hitter on Tuesday.

The Mud Hens were finishing a two-game set at Columbus on Wednesday night, and travel from there to Indianapolis. Infante would most likely follow the team there. The Tigers, meanwhile, finish up in Cleveland on Thursday night before heading to New York for a three-game weekend series against the Yankees.
