Omar Infante Changes Agencies

Tigers second baseman and pending free agent Omar Infante is now represented by Gene Mato of Mato Sports Management, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (via Twitter).  Infante was previously represented by Octagon Sports Management.

The move is notable not just because Infante is in his walk year, but because Mato also represented teammate Anibal Sanchez.  Both players came over via trade last July from the Marlins.

Infante, 31, is hitting .317/.344/.453 with nine homers in 389 plate appearances this season.  it's a slash line that's a marked improvement over his career numbers of .279/.318/.402.  While Robinson Cano will obviously the top second baseman on the open market this winter, Infante will find a less crowded market at his position after Chase Utley inked a contract extension with the Phillies.
