8/28/2014 9:53:00 PM
Description: Braves utilityman Emilio Bonifacio went 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored against the Mets on Thursday night.
Insight: Bonifacio also had a steal. He is hitting .283 with 21 extra-base hits, 41 runs and 19 steals in 336 at-bats.
 
8/22/2014 4:30:00 PM
Description: Braves utilityman Emilio Bonifacio will start in center field for B.J. Upton in Friday's game with Cincinnati.
Insight: Bonifacio can play any infield position and the outfield. He's batting .275 with 17 SB this season which makes him an offensive upgrade on Upton (.208, .611 OPS).
 
7/31/2014 5:59:00 PM
Description: The Cubs have traded utilityman Emilio Bonifacio to the Atlanta Braves along with lefty reliever James Russell.
Insight: Bonifacio has hit .400 with four doubles, a homer and a steal since he came off the disabled list on July 22. He'll likely fill in at second and in the outfield for the Braves but won't play every day.
 
6/13/2014 8:12:00 PM
Description: Cubs 2B/CF Emilio Bonifacio has been placed on the 15-day DL.
Insight: He suffered a rib cage injury in Thursday's loss to Pittsburgh. Bonifacio's post in center field will be filled by Ryan Sweeney (.193, 0 HR, 6 RBI), who was just activated earlier today.
 
6/12/2014 7:51:00 PM
Description: Chicago 2B/CF Emilio Bonifacio injured his rib cage Thursday in a game against Pittsburgh. SOURCE: Jesse Rogers, ESPN Chicago
Insight: Junior Lake (.246, 8 HR, 23 RBI) replaced Bonifacio in center field though the game is now in a rain delay. Bonifacio (.266, 1 HR, 16 RBI) grounded out in his only at bat of the night.
 
6/8/2014 9:53:00 PM
Description: Cubs utility man Emilio Bonifacio cranked three hits in Sunday's loss to Miami.
Insight: Aside from his 13 steals, it's been a pretty underwhelming season for Bonifacio, who is hitting .274 with just one homer and 16 runs batted in. Bonifacio is eligible at both second base and outfield which is probably why he's still owned in over half of ESPN leagues.
 
4/27/2014 12:03:00 PM
Description: Chicago second baseman Emilio Bonifacio isn't starting Sunday against Milwaukee. SOURCE: Carrie Muskat, MLB.com
Insight: It's his third absence of the season. With Bonifacio sitting this one out, Darwin Barney (.121, 1 HR, 3 RBI) will get the start at second base.
 
4/22/2014 6:03:00 PM
Description: Cubs utility man Emilio Bonifacio won't start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. SOURCE: Carrie Muskat, MLB.com
Insight: It's a scheduled off day for the 28-year-old. Luis Valbuena, who usually hits second, will move up to the leadoff spot in Bonifacio's absence.
 
4/19/2014 7:25:00 PM
Description: Cubs IF/OF Emilio Bonifacio went 3-for-5 with a steal and two runs Saturday against the Reds.
Insight: Bonifacio entered play 2-for-24 over his last six games, but he's still batting .358 due to his extremely hot start (19-for-38 first eight games). The 28-year-old has 11 runs and eight steals in 15 games and should be owned in all leagues.
 
4/5/2014 9:52:00 AM
Description: Cubs IF/OF Emilio Bonifacio is off to a great start, but he's just 1-for-10 against Phillies ace Cliff Lee.
Insight: Bonifacio is batting a league-leading .579 (11-for-19) with four SB and three runs scored, but the Phillies pitching staff held him hitless on Friday and he has a poor matchup on saturday.
 
2/15/2014 1:23:00 PM
Description: Emilio Bonifacio has agreed to a minor league deal with the Cubs. SOURCE: Jesse Rogers, ESPN Chicago
Insight: That didn't take long. Bonifacio was a free agent for all of three days before Chicago gave him the call. Bonifacio's speed (98 SB since 2011) remains his biggest asset.
 
2/12/2014 2:44:00 PM
Description: The Royals officially released infielder Emilio Bonifacio on Wednesday. SOURCE: Chris Cotillo, SB Nation
Insight: He was placed on waivers earlier this week. Bonifacio is gifted with elite speed but not much else. His career batting average is only .262. We'll see if he catches on with someone in time for spring training.
 
2/2/2014 11:38:00 AM
Description: The Royals designated utilty man Emilio Bonifacio for assignment on Saturday. SOURCE: Pete Grathoff, Kansas City Star
Insight: That opens up a roster spot for lefthander Bruce Chen. Bonifacio lost his spot at second base when the team inked Omar Infante to a four-year contract earlier this offseason. The 28-year-old is just a .262 lifetime hitter but he's an intriguing fantasy possibility because of his elite speed and positional flexibility.
 
9/14/2013 9:35:00 PM
Description: Kansas City second baseman Emilio Bonifacio got tossed for showing up an umpire Saturday versus the Tigers. SOURCE: Bob Dutton, Kansas City Star
Insight: Bonifacio threw his helmet down in frustration after he was picked off first base and was given the heave-ho moments later by umpire James Hoye. Chris Getz has since entered the game to to take over at second base for Bonifacio.
 
8/14/2013 5:24:00 PM
Description: The Blue Jays traded Emilio Bonifacio to the Royals for cash considerations or a player to be named later.
Insight: Bonifacio, who was traded from Miami to Toronto last offseason, hit just .218 with a .579 OPS in 94 games with the Jays. What's worse is that he had just 12 steals. Bonifacio carried solid fantasy value last year by stealing 30 bases in 64 games while battling numerous injuries. He could see regular at-bats at second base or in right field with the Royals, but he isn't someone fantasy owners need to add at this point.
 
9/4/2012 4:36:00 PM
Description: Miami utilityman Emilio Bonifacio (knee) has been ruled out for the season, according to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post.
Insight: Bonifacio is shutting it down to get healthy for 2013. The light-hitting Bonifacio will carry 2B/OF eligibility next season, but he'll lose 3B and SS because he didn't play at either of those positions this season. Still, he figures to be a mid-round target due to his stolen base ability (30 in 64 games this season).
 
8/22/2012 6:33:00 PM
Description: Miami utilityman Emilio Bonifacio, who was recently activated from the 15-day disabled list, is back on the shelf. The team placed Bonifacio on the DL with a knee sprain Wednesday.
Insight: Bonifacio has made three trips to the disabled list this season and he's likely to be out until mid-September.
 
8/22/2012 10:57:00 AM
Description: Miami utilityman Emilio Bonifacio, who was recently activated from the 15-day disabled list, is injured again. Bonifacio left Tuesday's game with a sore right knee.
Insight: When healthy, Bonifacio is a base-stealing machine with 30 SB in just 64 games. Unfortunately, he's rarely been healthy this season.
 
8/19/2012 12:42:00 PM
Description: Miami utilityman Emilio Bonifacio (thumb) has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and is in the lineup Sunday.
Insight: Bonifacio will play the outfield for the rest of the season as the team looks to protect his thumb, which has landed him on the disabled list twice this season. He was moved to second base after the team traded Omar Infante to Detroit.
 
8/16/2012 6:09:00 PM
Description: Miami utilityman Emilio Bonifacio (thumb) had two hits in his first rehab game Wednesday, according to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post.
Insight: Bonifacio should be back in the Marlins lineup Sunday barring any setbacks.
