Tigers' Omar Infante has broken hand

Doug Pensinger

As if getting swept in the World Series wasn't injury enough, Tigers second baseman Omar Infante will spend his winter recovering from a broken hand suffered in the ninth inning of Game 4, reports Anthony McCarron of the NY Daily News:

The 30-year-old Infante was hit on the left hand by a 2-1 pitch from Giants right-hander Santiago Casilla Monday night and immediately buckled over in pain. Infante was taken to the clubhouse right away for x-rays and was pinch-run for by Danny Worth.

Infante, who is signed through the 2013 season, had a mediocre second half for the Tigers after he was acquired from the Marlins in July. Infante hit just .257/.283/.385 with four home runs in sixty-four games for the Tigers, though his numbers were better than anyone else Detroit had put out at second.
