WSC Birth Years: Gregory Infante

Card #71 - Gregory Infante

Born: July 10, 1987

Gregory was a surprise call up on September 1, 2010. He wasn't even on the 40 man roster until right before his promotion. It turns out that the faith the White Sox put in Infante was well placed. In his first five appearances, he has a sparkling 0.00 ERA.

On September 7, 2010, Greg made his MLB debut against the Tigers in Detroit. In each of his first five appearances out of the bullpen, Infante has finished the game. He has shown the ability to work well in tough situations. He has done enough in his limited action to receive strong consideration for a bullpen role in the 2011 season.

Out of Gregory's five appearances and month plus with the club, there have still only been photos of him from his first day with the parent club. Instead of hoping for a miracle on the last day of the season, I've decided to go ahead with the best representation of what was available. This does fit in to a degree with 1987 Topps, but the photo would not have been my first choice.
