The Cubs finally found a taker for Jacque Jones as they have been trying to trade him for quite some time. Infante will be a utility man for the Cubs as he can handle shortstop, 2B, 3B and CF on defense. He played in 66 games for the Tigers last season and he was 45 for 166 (.271 avg, .662 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 2 homers, 17 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. He has been a starting shortstop in his career and he will likely get a lot of playing time for the Cubs this season. Infante has now played in 494 games in his major league career and he’s 403 for 1,592 (.253 avg, .684 OPS) with 192 runs scored, 32 homers, 154 RBIs and 34 stolen bases.
