Blue Jays trade Bonifacio to Royals
The contending Royals have added some bench help courtesy of the non-contending Blue Jays.
The contending Royals -- who at this writing are just four games out of playoff position -- have acquired veteran utility man Emilio Bonifacio from the Blue Jays in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations.
The 28-year-old Bonifacio, whom the Jays acquired as part of the November 2012 blockbuster with the Marlins, is batting .218/.258/.321 in 282 plate appearances this season, and he's seen time at short, second and all three outfield positions. He's also capable of manning third, and he can steal a base on occasion. For his career, Bonifacio owns a 78 OPS+ across parts of seven major-league seasons.
Bonifacio is eligible for salary arbitration this offseason.
