Infante commenting on being drafted by the Nats: “I think they got a huge steal”

A prep prospect from Florida, Infante rose his stock this spring by making improvements across the board to his already well-rounded skill set. While he lacks a standout tool, the 6-foot-1, 175-pound Infante has showcased average to above average power and speed, but his ability to consistently make contact remains more of a concern. Infante grades out well enough as a defender to stick in the infield, though he may lack the range to be an everyday shortstop and could ultimately settle at second or third base. The Nationals will have to pry him away from a commitment to Miami in order to sign him.

At Monsignor Pace he hit .481 with four doubles, one home run, and six RBIs this season. As a junior he hit .476 with two doubles, two triples, three home runs, and 18 RBIs.
