In the 1980s, the Blue Jays called Infante its best defensive shortstop in the American League next to Chicago's Ozzie Guillén. Infante had exceptional range and enough arm to make a 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 as well as a pinch runner. He posted a .109 batting average with 11 runs scored and one stolen base without home runs or RBI in 60 game appearances.
Besides, Infante spent ten seasons in the Toronto and Atlanta minor league systems between 1982 and 1996, compiling a .255 average with 12 homers and 249 RBI in 880 games.
After his playing days, Infante managed the Dominican Summer League Rangers and also has coached for a long time in his native country for the Cardenales.
