      Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Lined up to split right field and DH duty

      Jorge Bonifacio is currently positioned to share time in right field and at DH with Jorge Soler, the Kansas City Star reports.Last season as a rookie, Bonifacio hit .255/.320/.432 with 17 homers and 40 RBI along with 55 runs scored, but he graded out as a slightly below-average defender in the outfield. Somewhat surprisingly, Bonifacio was more effective against same-handed pitching in 2017, finishing with a 104 wRC+ against righties and an 85 wRC+ against lefties. Barring the addition of a more established veteran outfielder this spring, Bonifacio is on a path to exceed his playing time volume from last season, giving him an outside shot at eclipsing 20 homers in a rebuilding Kansas City lineup.

      Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: On bench for third straight contest

      Jorge Bonifacio is out of the lineup Monday against the Tigers.As August ended, it appeared Bonifacio may have been trending toward reclaiming a regular starting role amid Alex Gordon's offensive struggles, but any momentum on that front has since been stalled. Bonifacio will be on the bench for a third consecutive contest while Gordon, who still offers defensive value in the corner outfield, sticks in the starting lineup Monday.

      Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Slugs 16th homer Tuesday

      Jorge Bonifacio went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Rays.Playing time has been hard to come by for the rookie since the Kansas City Royals picked up Melky Cabrera, but Bonifacio took advantage of his first start in four games. He's managed a .250/.294/.396 slash line in 48 at-bats through August with two homers and three RBI, but with the outfield set to get even more crowded in September, he'll have a tough time maintaining any kind of value outside of DFS and daily transaction formats down the stretch.

      Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Launches 15th home run Sunday

      Jorge Bonifacio went 2-for-5 with a homer, two runs scored and two RBI in Sunday's 14-6 win over the White Sox.Bonifacio took starter Derek Holland deep on a third-inning solo shot, then drove in another run with a single in the sixth before coming around to score later in the frame. The rookie right fielder's career high for home runs at any level was 19 in 134 games for Triple-A Omaha last year, but he's taken his power numbers to a new level with 15 long balls in just 88 games with the big club.

      Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Starting in right field Sunday

      Jorge Bonifacio is starting in right field and batting sixth Sunday against the White Sox.The recent acquisition of Melky Cabrera has significantly cut into Bonifacio's playing time. Sunday will mark the rookie's first start in four games and just his third in the last eight contests. Bonifacio has struggled since moving to a reserve role, so plugging him into fantasy lineups Sunday is a questionable decision.

      Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Adjusting to reduced role

      Jorge Bonifacio, who had started nearly every game since he was called up April 21, is adjusting to a reduce role caused by the acquisition of Melky Cabrera, Wilson Alexander of MLB.com reports.Bonifacio admitted it's been difficult transitioning out of a starting role, but the youngster also said he isn't hanging his head. "It's kinda tough," Bonifacio said. "I try to be ready for whatever opportunity I get. I don't put it in my mind if I'm not playing today. I don't cool down. I prepare every day like I'm playing." The 24-year-old hit 14 home runs entering Friday, fourth-most among AL rookies. He'd reached base in 32 of his previous 35 games, including a 22-game on-base streak, which was the second longest such run by a rookie in Kansas City Royals history. Despite the outfielder's success he's now the odd man out, and his fantasy value should reflect such.

      Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Sits again Tuesday

      Jorge Bonifacio is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.With Melky Cabrera taking over an everyday role in right field, Bonifacio will head to the bench for a second straight game as the Kansas City Royals seem content to stick with Brandon Moss at DH for the time being. The 24-year-old should still see some at-bats, but it looks as though he'll play second fiddle to Moss for the time being.

      Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: In line for more DH days

      Jorge Bonifacio could see more time as the Kansas City Royals' designated hitter over the rest of the season, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.Melky Cabrera is expected to assume everyday right field duties when he joins the team Monday, leaving Bonifacio in limbo of sorts. He just snapped his seven-game hit streak Sunday, but his 14 home runs and .773 OPS certainly warrant a good amount of playing time. It's unclear how the Royals will divvy up DH playing time between him and Brandon Moss, but things should clear up over the next few days. Bonifacio's role for the remainder of the season very well could hinge on his performance over the next week or so.

      Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Homers for third straight contest

      Jorge Bonifacio went 3-for-5 with a solo home run during Monday's win over Detroit.This was the third consecutive game with a homer for Bonifacio, and the rookie is now up to a .259/.331/.464 slash line with 14 bombs, 31 RBI and 41 runs. It's also worth noting that 12 of those long flies have come over his past 54 games, dating back to late May. He's moving the fantasy needle in most settings while legitimizing his long-term power upside.
