Leyland taking wait-and-see approach with Infante

Leyland taking wait-and-see approach with Infante

NEW YORK -- Omar Infante continues to rehab with Triple-A Toledo, and manager Jim Leyland has left open the possibility that he'll join the team for the upcoming series in Chicago.

Infante played second base and went 0-for-4 for the Mud Hens on Saturday night before Gustavo Nunez pinch-hit for him. Asked if Infante was still on track for a Monday return, Leyland wasn't sure.

"I just don't know," Leyland said Sunday morning. "That's a twofold situation, because you're talking about health and you're also talking about timing. You're not talking about bringing him back just because his ankle's fine.

"He should get some more at-bats [Sunday]. Only the player can tell you if he thinks he's got the timing right. We'll have to wait and see on that one."
