Detroit second baseman Omar Infante broke his left hand when he was hit by a pitch in the ninth inning of Game 4 of the World Series.
Infante went down to the ground immediately after a pitch by San Francisco reliever Santiago Casilla came inside and the Detroit hitter was unable to avoid the ball. Infante got up relatively quickly, took off his batting glove and walked toward the...
DETROIT -- Jim Leyland didn't make any promises Sunday night, but he sounds like a man who is planning to keep his job.
Speaking to local writers after his Tigers were swept in the World Series, Leyland acknowledged that he still wants to manage.
