Omar Infante has been diagnosed with a sprained jaw. He required six stitches and has a non-concussive head injury. He'll be evaluated for the next 48 hours before a decision on whether or not he will be placed on the disabled list is made.

Considering the shot he took to the cops Monday, this almost sounds like best-case scenario for the Royals second baseman. Infante has had a very rough go at it this year so far. Between shoulder issues and a bone spur causing him pain in the elbow during spring training and now this, he's turning into a bit of a cautionary tale. Expect him to miss a few games this week and keep an eye on his status to see if a DL stint is needed. With the Royals having just sent down Pedro Ciriaco for added bullpen depth, Danny Valencia is likely to see a few starts at the keystone now.
