Kansas City, Mo. — Kansas City’s Omar Infante has a sprained jaw and needed six stitches to close a cut opened when he was hit by a Heath Bell pitch.
Infante was injured during the seventh inning of Monday’s 4-2 win over Tampa Bay and was sent to the University of Kansas Medical Center.
The Royals said Tuesday that the second baseman did not sustain a concussion. The team said he will be evaluated over the following two days.
