New second baseman Omar Infante likes Royals’ young energy

Part of the allure for second baseman Omar Infante signing with the Royals might have been the contract they offered: four years with a club option for 2018 worth a guaranteed $30.25 million, longer than any other deal Infante had on the table. But Infante, 31, made it clear that the Royals’ youthful energy played a role in his decision.
