MIAMI (Reuters) - The Florida Marlins have placed second baseman Omar Infante on the 15-day disabled list with a broken finger, the Major League Baseball team said on Friday.

Infante, 29, fractured his right middle finger while fielding a ball against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday. He remained in the game for three more innings before exiting.

The 2010 All-Star was hitting ,279 and was the only Marlins player to appear in every game this season.
