Infante to miss a few days

CLEVELAND — Marlins second baseman Omar Infante, the team’s most consistent hitter all season, will miss a few days due to a death in a family.

Infante learned on Sunday that his grandfather passed away. The Venezuelan native returned to his native country for the funeral.

The Marlins are hoping the veteran second baseman will rejoin the team on Wednesday.

Donnie Murphy started at second base in place of Infante.

Josh Johnson is starting for the Marlins in Sunday’s series finale at Cleveland. Derek Lowe is starting for the Indians.
