FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Royals manager Ned Yost is optimistic that Omar Infante (back) will rejoin the team this week against the Astros.

Infante has been out since May 6, but appears to be close to returning. He began a rehab assignment on Friday and was able to play in the field on Saturday, so it conceivable that Infante could be activated before Monday's game against Houston.ANALYST: David Kerr
