Update: Omar Infante (back) is not in the Royals starting lineup on Wednesday.
As I noted before, we would have to wait and see how batting practice went and the back continued to give him more difficulty. Infante has been a bright spot for the Royals struggling offense this season batting .267 with two homeruns and a staggering 19 RBI. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
