Omar Infante has given the Tigers the stability at second base they were looking for when it obtained him from Miami.
The Tigers look like a team right now that is poised to make a run.
There are comebacks, there are great comebacks, and then there’s Sunday’s Tigers comeback against the Indians.
At 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday afternoon, Major League Baseball’s non-waiver Trade Deadline passed with 19 teams within five games of postseason contention.
Should the Detroit Tigers make another trade? Or do you think the deal to get Pitcher Annabelle Sanchez and 2nd baseman Omar Infante was enough to push the team into the postseason? I like the trade, even if the Tigers had to give up their top pitching prospect Jacob Turner.
Omar Infante will hit ninth against right-handers and second against southpaws, and he’ll play nearly every day.
As expected, Ryan Raburn is safe for now.
1. He fills a glaring need at second base.
The Detroit Tigers have acquired second baseman Omar Infante and right-hander Anibal Sanchez from Miami, sending 21-year-old righty Jacob Turner and two minor leaguers to the Marlins.
We know that the Tigers are trying to make a deal before the end of this months trading deadline.
