Injury roundup: Infante getting examined, Downs to rehab in Toledo

Omar Infante is back in Detroit, but is nowhere near a return to the Tigers. He’s at Comerica Park awaiting an examination on his left ankle, which gave him trouble again Thursday night during his rehab assignment for Class A West Michigan.

Infante said he felt fine at the plate, but felt pain — not soreness, but pain — in his ankle when he tried to to accelerate on the basepaths after getting on base. He also felt some pain pushing off in the field.

“It’s pain, same is in the past,” Infante said.

The Tigers are giving no timetable on an Infante return. At this point, they’re going to have to focus on simply getting him healthy and then move from there. Infante is thinking it might take a while.

“I think maybe one more week, two more weeks,” he said.

As for Darin Downs, he came out of his rehab inning at West Michigan last night feeling fine. The lefty will pick up his rehab assignment at Triple-A Toledo, likely pitching Sunday night. Again, there’s no timetable saying that one more rehab outing should do it, but it sounds like he’s getting close. The Mud Hens are home through next week, so the Tigers have ample time to get him ready.
