Tigers Option Danny Worth to Make Room for Omar Infante

Presswire

The Detroit Tigers have optioned infielder Danny Worth to Triple-A to make room on their roster for Omar Infante, acquired from the Miami Marlins yesterday, reports Jason Beck of MLB.com:

Detroit acquired Infante along with right-hander Anibal Sanchez in exchange for Marlins’ prospects Jacob Turner, Rob Brantly and Brian Flynn.

While the Tigers’ offense as a whole has performed well this season, they haven’t gotten any production out of second base. On the year, Detroit’s second basemen have combined to hit at a clip of .201/.286/.276.

To put it into perspective, Infante alone has more extra-base hits this season than Tigers’ second basemen have RBIs.

On the season, Infante posted a line of .287/.312/.442 with 23 doubles, two triples and eight home runs. The 30-year-old owns a career OPS of .715.

Worth, 26, appeared in 35 games with the Tigers this season. Over 65 at-bats, he hit at a clip of .215/.325/.262.
