TIGERS: Second baseman Omar Infante left Saturday’s game against Kansas City with lower back stiffness.

He was replaced at the start of the seventh inning by Ramon Santiago. The Tigers say Infante is day to day.

He is hitting .315 with six homers and 29 RBIs.

ATHLETICS: Pitcher Bartolo Colon is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a strained left groin.

The All-Star righty hurt himself throwing on flat ground Friday. The A’s will make the move today and lefty Tommy Milone will be recalled from Triple-A. The 40-year-old didn’t get past the fourth inning in his last two starts. Colon is 14-5 with a 2.97 ERA. Lefty Brett Anderson made a rehab start for Sacramento on Saturday.

METS: Promoted catcher Travis d’Arnaud from Triple-A and put him into the starting lineup for his major league debut.

The Mets put catcher John Buck on the paternity list. D’Arnaud was the key player the Mets received from Toronto in the offseason trade for NL Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey. The 24-year-old d’Arnaud was hitting .304 with two home runs and 12 RBIs in 19 games. D’Arnaud says he feels ready to play every day. He is set to catch ace Matt Harvey today.

PHILLIES: Pitcher Roy Halladay will continue his rehab assignment Tuesday with the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. The 36-year-old hasn’t pitched since May as he recovers from shoulder surgery. In his first rehab start, Halladay allowed three runs and six hits while striking out four and walking three in six innings.

WHITE SOX: Placed right-handed reliever Ramon Troncoso on the disabled list Saturday with inflammation of the lining around his heart.

Chicago purchased the contract of Jake Petricka.
