KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Royals have finalized a $30.25 million, four-year contract with veteran Omar Infante to become their primary second baseman.
An agreement was reached Friday, and the deal was announced Monday night.
Infante, who turns 32 on Dec. 26, should stabilize second base after the Royals churned through six players last season. None of them did enough to earn the job.
Infante hit .318 with 10 homers and 51 RBIs in 118 games for Detroit last season.
