Tigers make a significant upgrade with addition of Infante and Sanchez

Rick Porcello, Doug Fister and Max Scherzer are pitching well. Miguel Cabrera has been tremendous, and so has Austin Jackson. The Tigers’ bullpen has been very good. Since June 8, the Tigers are 26-12 and have made up a six-game deficit to take the lead in the American League Central.

Now GM Dave Dombrowski has made a nice move in acquiring second baseman Omar Infante and pitcher Anibal Sanchez from the Marlins. He surrendered a top pitching prospect, Jacob Turner. His one and only goal was to win in 2012, and this trade puts the Tigers in a better position to do just that.

Jim Leyland has used five different players at second base, and they’ve combined for a .562 OPS, lowest in the American League. Infante, 30, is second among NL second basemen in doubles (23), fifth in home runs (eight) and sixth in RBI (33) and OPS (.749).
