For all the optimism surrounding Mike Moustakas, the same cannot be said about second baseman Omar Infante. In fact, his job security with the Kansas City Royals may be in question, at least according to writers Alan Todd and Ethan Evans. Here are Alan’s expectations:

Christian Colon will be the starting second baseman for the Kansas City Royals by June 1, after Omar Infante injures his shoulder diving for a ground ball and needs season-ending surgery.

Colon goes on to hit .290, with 25 doubles, three triples and six home runs. He adds 15 stolen bases and finishes third in Rookie of the Year voting in the American League. Infante is packaged after the season with one of the Royals big four relievers, yet General Manager Dayton Moore must agree to eat part of Infante’s remaining two years of salary to make the trade.

Ethan gave several predictions, and here is what he had to say on Infante:

I think that Christian Colon will be the Royals starting second-baseman by the end of the season as I believe the breakdown of Omar Infante is (sadly) only beginning.
