While the Detroit Tigers hold their breath regarding Miguel Cabrera's hip injury, they could get a nice boost this weekend from someone else.  Omar Infante, who has been on the DL since the beginning of July, could return for a series against the Philadelphia Phillies. According to Joey Nowak of MLB.com, Infante made his first rehab appearance yesterday at Class A West Michigan.  He will likely play another game today then return to the Tigers on Friday.  If the club feels Infante needs more time to get back in the swing of things, they can bring him back anytime over the weekend or the start of next week, but the best bet is a return on Friday. Infante suffered a sprained ankle in a game against the Toronto Blue Jays toward the beginning of July.  Colby Rasmus slid into his ankle at second base and forced Infante from that game.  He was eventually placed on the DL as it quickly became clear that the sprain was not something that was going to heal without rehab and treatment. The Tigers have not yet made a decision on what they will do with Infante beyond this season.  He is signed through the 2013 season, but then he becomes a free agent.  Infante, 31, has played the last two seasons with the Tigers.  This year, he is hitting .309/.340/.447.  In his career, Infante is a .277/.317/.400 hitter.
