    • Tigers' Omar Infante: Returns to Tigers on NRI deal
      By RotoWire Staff

      Infante has signed a minor league contract with the Tigers that includes an invite to spring training. He will return to the organization with whom he's spent the majority of his 15-year major league career; the one that signed him as an amateur free agent in 1999. Infante began 2016 in a starting role with Kansas City, but hit just .239/.279/.321 and was eventually released. The soon-to-be 35-year-old is organizational filler at this point.

    • Omar Infante: Released by Braves
      By RotoWire Staff

      Infante was released by the Braves on Monday, Kevin McAlpin of the Braves Radio Network reports. After a disappointing start to the 2016 campaign with the Royals where he hit just .239/.279/.321, Infante joined the Braves via a minor league deal. Unfortunately, the 34-year-old's numbers continued to fall, as he hit a mere .209/.226/.300 with Triple-A Gwinnett.

    • Infante agreed to a minor league contract with the Braves on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Infante was cut loose by the Royals last week after clearing through waivers unclaimed, and he'll now get the chance to continue his career in Atlanta. The 34-year-old was hitting just .239 this season after slashing a disappointing .220/.234/.318 in 2015, so it remains to be seen how much he has left in the tank but he could get an opportunity to provide middle infield depth in the majors at some point.

    • Omar Infante: Clears waivers Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Infante cleared waivers Thursday and is now an unrestricted free agent, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Given his .239/.279/.321 slash line through 39 games and remaining contract, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Infante was able to pass through waivers unclaimed. Following two and a half mediocre seasons in Kansas City, he'll now be free to sign with any team and it's possible he'll attract some interest as a middle infield depth option.

    • Royals' Omar Infante: Placed on release waivers
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Royals requested release waivers on Infante, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports. Designated for assignment last week, Infante will now become a free agent if he isn't claimed by Thursday. Given his sizable contract in combination with his lack of production the past three years, he figures to pass through unclaimed.
