The Venezuelan Baseball League Final started Wednesday in the city of Valencia. Cardenales de Lara and Navegantes del Magallanes will vie for the championship trophy. Although with little presence of Tigers, many had outstanding participation in the playoffs and it is important to highlight. None more noteworthy than the appearance in January of Omar Infante.
This past July, I wrote about the Detroit Tigers and the potential that they might trade for Justin Upton prior to the deadline. Click here to read that story again. Instead, the Tigers grabbed Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante to fill out their pre-August wish list. But back to Upton, other than the month on the calendar, little has changed.
Perhaps most notable from that piece back...
The Detroit Tigers added insult to injury during Sunday night’s World Series game four loss to the San Francisco Giants. Tigers second baseman Omar Infante was struck by a pitch in the ninth inning, enduring what an Associated Press report via ESPN is calling a broken left hand.
Infante got up after being hit and took himself out of the game, visibly shaken and in a lot of pain...

73-67, 2nd place, 3 games behind CWS.
Baseball is a cruel game.
Omar Infante has played 335 innings for the Tigers, roughly 1/2 of how many he played for the Marlins. He has 6 errors so far with Detroit, compared to 8 with Miami, and a RF that has slipped almost a full point. Perhaps no error has been worse than last night’s. Infante’s error sparked a 4 run bottom of the 6th...
For the first month of the season, Omar Infante was one of the best hitters in baseball – especially at the 2nd base position. During April, Infante hit .324 with 5 HR’s, 14 R’s and strangely enough only 7 RBI’s. Still, even with his low RBI totals, Infante was owned in 100% of ESPN leagues and seemed like a waiver steal.
Then in May, Infante became a different player. He...
