BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Infante spent the year dealing gas from the Charlotte 'pen, a phrase which the baseball-disinclined may take to mean he was selling nitrous oxide to fellow prisoners, but which you, Gentle Reader, understand to mean he used his mid-90s fastball in relief. Infanteís already-shaky control took a small step backwards last year, he didnít miss as many bats as he had in the low minors, his mechanics are still a fright, and his secondary pitches are works-in-progress. On the plus side he clearly has enough stuff to retire major league hitters. With few other options in the system, he may get his shot this year.
2011 The Sox don't get a ton of credit for having a system well-stocked in arms with good gun readings, but then you get reminders like Infante about how quickly a guy's prospects improve if he's put in the pen and assigned the straightforward task of throwing as hard as he can for an inning. Converted to relief work, the young Venezuelan pumped gas in the 95-97 range, the sort of thing that punches a ticket to the majors with matching alacrity. The question is whether he'll adapt and adjust as hitters learn to sit dead-red, but if he does, he'll be sticking around in a bullpen for years to come.
