Alexis Infante Alexis Infante , born Fermin Alexis Infante Carpio (December 4, 1961 in Barquisimeto, Lara State, Venezuela), is a former Major League Baseball infielder who played for the Toronto Blue Jays (1987-89) and Atlanta Braves (1990). He batted and threw right-handed.
In the 1980s, Toronto called Infante the best defensive shortstop in the American League next to Chicago's Ozzie GuillĂ©n. Infante had an exceptional range and enough arm to make the throw from the hole, but he was unable to help himself with the bat.
In a four-season career, Infante was mostly used as a late-inning defense replacement or as a pinch runner. He posted a .109 batting average with 11 runs scored in 60 games.
