Infante returns to lineup for opener vs. Twins

DETROIT -- Omar Infante was back in the Tigers' lineup Tuesday after missing Sunday's game against the Royals due to lower back spasms and a tight left quadriceps.

"Omar's fine," manager Jim Leyland said. "I wasn't sure about that one, but he's fine and ready to go."

Infante said he suffered the injuries while running home from third during a suicide-squeeze play in Saturday's game, in which exited in the seventh inning.

"Just coming from my ankle problems, I think it's coming from that," Infante said on Sunday. "I don't know. It's the first time it's happened to me."
