Omar Infante went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and six RBI in Sunday's victory over the Orioles.
After today's performance, Infante has a .279 average to go along with two home runs and 16 RBIs. He isn't a great option at second base, but he certainly won't kill you. He should be viewed as a decent middle infield option in 12-team mixed leagues and deeper.ANALYST: David Kerr
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
