Omar Infante is arbitration eligible for the 2008 season and made $1.3 million in 2007.
According to a report on Yahoo.com with the trade of Jacque Jones on Monday, Jim Hendry stated:
“The Cubs would probably turn to young players such as Felix Pie and Sam Fuld in center, adding that infielder Ronny Cedeno also has been working in the outfield.”
The deal apparently started taking shape at last week’s GM meetings. Both Hendry and Dave Dombroski started talking about each other’s needs. The trade was apparently finalized on Sunday night. Hendry also stated in the report from Yahoo:
“We tried to wrap this up as soon as we could. We both have other issues to address.”
