Source: "Nothing Close Right Now" with Omar Infante

   ATLANTA -- "Many" teams have spoken to the Marlins about second baseman Omar Infante in advance of today's 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline, but there is "nothing close" in the way of a deal, a source said.

   Infante is projected to be a Type B free agent after the season, meaning the Marlins would receive a supplemental draft pick if he doesn't finish the season with them. With Emilio Bonifacio blossoming into form, the Marlins also feel they have insurance at second base for next season.

   The Braves and Brewers are two teams known to have contacted the Marlins about Infante. Lefty relief specialist Randy Choate has also drawn interest from other clubs.

    But most indications are, barring an overwhelming offer, the Marlins intend to sit tight through the deadline.
