A quick look at the Chicago White Sox pitcher just called up Gregory Infante
A surprising move by the White Sox has them bringing up Gregory Infante to the Major league club who has been on 12 minor league clubs
To say the Gregory Infante has had a hard route to the bigs would be an understatement. Infante was signed by the White Sox out of Venezuela back in 2006. The only time that he has been with the big league club was back in 2010 when he was a call-up in September. In his day he pitched in five games and allowed two hits, four walks and struck out five over 4 2/3 scoreless innings.
During the 2017 season so far Infante has gone 0-1 with a 2.08 ERA in 13 innings striking out 16.
The move was made I think to everyone’s surprise considering that Yoan Moncada should have been the move. Especially considering that promoting him wouldn’t take away the year of control from the White Sox.
Space was made for Gregory Infante by putting Geovany Soto to the 60 day DL. It was announced that he would have arthroscopic surgery on his elbow to clean it up.
Considering that Infante has been in the minor leagues for 11 years now and he hasn’t smelled the majors in six years he is only 29 years old.
