Infante had his contract purchased from Triple-A Charlotte on Monday. Calling up Infante is the corresponding roster move after Cody Asche was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday. The 29-year-old right-hander hasn't appeared in the majors since 2010, also with the White Sox, but his stellar 2.08 ERA and 11.1 K/9 in 13 Triple-A innings this season could help him succeed in a low-leverage relief role.
Infante agreed to a minor league deal with the White Sox, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. The 29-year-old struggled in 2016, accumulating a 5.11 ERA across 61.2 innings with the Phillies' Double-A and Triple-A affiliates. He hasn't pitched in the majors since 2010, and that doesn't look like it will change with the White Sox next season.
Infante was reassigned to minor league camp on Saturday. Infante agreed to a minor league deal with the Phillies in December after spending a majority of 2015 on the Blue Jays' Triple-A club, the Buffalo Bison. The 28-year-old is not expected to make much of an impact for the Phillies this season, and has only pitched in five major-league games (all in 2010 with the White Sox) during his career.
Infante agreed to a minor league contract with the Phillies on Monday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Infante spent the majority of the season at the Triple-A level, where he posted a 2.77 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 48.2 innings. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2010, but the 28-year-old could work his way into the big league bullpen if he can continue finding success in the minors.
The Blue Jays have sent down five pitchers from the major league camp, reports MLB.com. Matt West, Preston Guilmet, Gregory Infante, Scott Copeland and Greg Burke have all been sent to the team's minor-league camp. Toronto still has 24 pitchers left in camp.
