Infante Returns

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Via, the Marlins and Omar Infante have agreed to a two-year contract extension worth $8 million.

Re-signing Infante is nothing to get terribly excited about, but the Marlins have bigger needs than second base this offseason, so retaining Infante for $8 million over two years is a pretty sensible deal. If he puts up 2.5 WAR for two more years, that's $1.6 million/WAR, which is $0.5 million/WAR cheaper than John Buck.

UPDATE: Marlin Maniac has run the numbers, and it turns out the Marlins might actually be underpaying Infante. Well played, front office, well played.
