Omar Infante looked just about ready to come off the disabled list, but the Tigers second baseman suffered a setback with his injured ankle while rehabbing in the minors.

Tony Paul of the Detroit News reports that he left last night’s Single-A game early because of “continued soreness” in his ankle, with Infante saying afterward: “I’m feeling a lot of pain in my ankle right now. Real bad. Now when I’m walking, I feel pain.”

Infante has been out since taking the brunt of Colby Rasmus‘ takeout slide on July 3, but indicated after the setback that he might have tried to come back too soon. Whatever the case, it’ll likely be a while before he’s ready to rejoin Detroit’s lineup.

    Urgh. And Miggy’s been out and now Torii is day-to-day. Must be nearing the final stretch.

      Just heard from a fairly reliable source that the Tiggers are close to bringing back Inge in exchange for International cash.

        The total amount of cash in the deal totals 3 Pesos.

        That’s about right.

    I’m enjoying watching Hernan Perez, but I hope Omar gets back soon.

    It would also help greatly if the imposter wearing #35 went back to where ever he came from and the real JV came back.

      Does this kid seem eager to prove himself or what? He is not wasting his big chance. I’ve been impressed with his aggressiveness.

        It’s nice having some speed on the team.
