Bonifacio Goes 2-for-3 Hitting Ninth Against Boston

Hitting ninth in the order, Emilio Bonifacio went 2-for-3 Tuesday with a double, two runs scored and his 12th stolen base of the season. He’s upped his OBP a touch in June, hitting .245/.310/.283 in 53 at-bats, but those still aren’t numbers of a useful major league starter. His days as the regular third baseman have to be numbered. (Rotowire)

Bonifacio Enjoys Best Game Thus Far in May

Emilio Bonifacio was 2-for-4 with two runs and a stole base in a loss to the Brewers on Tuesday. It was his first multi-hit game since May 4th and his first stolen base since April 28. Hope you sold high. He’s swooned badly in May, and he’s hitting .233/.298/.256 in 43 at-bats on the month with three caught stealings in four attempts. If the Marlins can find another option for third base Bonifacio’s days as a starter might be numbered. (Rotoworld, Rotowire)

Bonifacio Shows Signs of Life at the Plate

Marlins 3B Emilio Bonifacio shows some signs of turning things around on Sunday in a 3-2 loss to the Rockies. Bonifacio walked to lead off the game for the Marlins then doubled later in the contest. He was however caught stealing after drawing the leadoff walk. Bonifacio got off to a piping hot start but has fizzled out almost completely since the first two weeks of the season. He is still figuring out how to be an everyday player with the Marlins but has the potential to do big things eventually. However, he is merely an NL-only option at this point in the season.

Roster Moves – May 5th – Week 5

FAAB Acquisition:

  • RP Clay Condrey, Phillies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • SP Shairon Martis
  • SP Chad Gaudin
  • CM Emilio Bonifacio
  • OF Austin Kearns (to DH)

Move:

  • 1B Conor Jackson (to OF)
  • CM Casey Kotchman (to 1B)

Down:

  • RP John Grabow
  • RP Kyle McClellan
  • RP Juan Gutierrez
  • 3B Brian Barden
  • OF Jody Gerut

Cut:

  • OF Jose Tabata (Minors)

Notes:

  • Tabata will miss the next six weeks with a hamstring strain, and he was only hitting .250 at AA Altoona, so at this point he’s not a strong protection for 2010.

Bonifacio Has Another Multi-Hit Game

Marlins 2B and leadoff hitter Emilio Bonifacio went 2-for-5 in a win over the Mets on Wednesday afternoon. Bonifacio doubled in the game for the Fish. He’s hitting .281 on the season. Hitting .378 as recently as April 17, Bonifacio’s batting average has plummeted and was as low as .266 before the series opener against the Mets. He’s got it back up to .281 but he’s still really struggling. This is two consecutive multi-hit games, however, so he may be sparking up again. Still, with only four extra base hits on the season to go with five RBI in 89 at bats, he doesn’t produce enough to warrant using outside NL-only leagues. (CBS Sports)
