Infante reaches two-year agreement

MIAMI — After weeks of negotiations, the Marlins have reached agreement with second baseman Omar Infante on a two-year contract.

The deal is believed to be worth $8 million over the two years. According to a team source, Infante is scheduled to take a physical on Tuesday, and once that process is completed, an announcement is expected.

Infante, 30, and reliever Mike Dunn were  obtained from the Braves last November for Dan Uggla.

Infante earned $2.5 million this season.

The veteran made it clear he wanted to remain with the Marlins. By coming to terms now, he avoids going through the free agent process.
