2 year extension:




Infante reaches two-year agreement


MIAMI — After weeks of negotiations, the Marlins have reached agreement with second baseman Omar Infante on a two-year contract.

Terms are not yet known. But according to a team source, Infante is scheduled to take a physical on Tuesday, and once that process is completed, an announcement is expected.

Infante, 30, and reliever Mike Dunn were obtained from the Braves last November for Dan Uggla.

Infante earned $2.5 million this season.

The veteran made it clear he wanted to remain with the Marlins. By coming to terms now, he avoids going through the free agent process.



A player wanted to stay with the Marlins?! ZOMG HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!

whoops.. just from frisarios twitter. not confirmed


That's somewhat credible for now, though.


This is awesome news, if it's true. That's a good deal and the Marlins could use him next year.

He's just fine as the starting 2B, and he's also a great player to plug holes if injuries pop up.


I think 2 years/8 million is exactly what I predicted in another thread, or at least what I said I'd be more comfortable with. I stand by that, and so I like this deal.
