Braves release Omar Infante

The Braves released veteran infielder Omar Infante on Tuesday following an unproductive six-week stint at Triple-A Gwinnett.

In 116 plate appearances for the G-Braves, Infante hit .209 with a .226 on-base percentage and .300 slugging percentage. The Braves signed Infante on June 30, two weeks after the Royals designated him for assignment, as a low-risk option in case they needed a veteran infielder for the big-league team.

Infante, 34, played for the Braves from 2008-10 and made the All-Star team in his final season. The Braves traded Infante and Mike Dunn to the Marlins for Dan Uggla.
