Is Omar Infante A Good Clutch Hitter?

That is what one of the announcers said on the TBS game this past Sunday. Here are his AVG-OBP-SLG in various cases

Total: .277-.316-.397
RISP: .286-.327-.393
ROB: .278-.315-.378
Close & Late: .269-.318-.366
High Leverage: .249-.289-.349

I don't see any great performance or improvement in performance in the clutch. Now players generally do better with runners on and RISP but worse in close and late cases. But his deviations are very minor. These two links have some insights on this
