    • Tigers' Omar Infante: Back to full strength
      By RotoWire Staff

      Infante (back) has been deemed good to go for Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Infante isn't included in the lineup Wednesday, but should be available off the bench as a pinch-hitter or defensive replacement. The veteran second baseman has enjoyed a fairly productive spring, but he's not expected to crack the Tigers' Opening Day roster.

    • Tigers' Omar Infante: Out with stiff back
      By RotoWire Staff

      Infante was scratched from Monday's lineup with back stiffness, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Infante felt something stiffen in his back while taking BP before the game, so the Tigers swapped him out of the lineup. It's unclear how long this will keep him sidelined, so consider him day-to-day until the team notes otherwise.

    • Tigers' Omar Infante: Longshot for MLB role
      By RotoWire Staff

      Infante likely won't make the big league roster despite posting strong numbers this spring, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. The veteran infielder is slashing .353/.389/.471 this spring, but with Andrew Romine and Dixon Machado in tow, Infante seems to be the odd man out when it comes to reserve infield spots. However, this strong spring showing could act as a springboard to a major league job with another club, although he'll likely have to settle for an organizational depth role until that opportunity comes along.

    • 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.
