"It wasn't swinging that bothered him, it was bending to catch ground balls," Yost said. "We'll go day to day with him, as we always do. But he's feeling much better."

Infante and third baseman Mike Moustakas, who was sent down to regroup on Thursday, each went 0-for-4 in Omaha's 3-2 victory on Friday night.
