Tigers' Jorge Bonifacio: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio will be a part of the Tigers' 60-man player pool this season.

Bonifacio, who posted a solid .936 OPS in Grapefruit League action before play was suspended, will give the Tigers a veteran option off the bench. He spent the last three seasons with the Royals, so he should be familiar with AL Central competition.

Tigers' Jorge Bonifacio: Strong spring showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio posted a .936 OPS, one home run, four RBI and five runs scored in 11 Grapefruit League games before MLB suspended play.

The 26-year-old showed some life in his bat, but he will still likely begin the year at Triple-A Toledo whenever the season is able to resume. Bonifacio did have some success at the MLB level in 2017, when he posted a .752 OPS and 17 home runs in 113 games with Kansas City, though he regressed in 2018 and only played in five games for the Royals last year. He will likely get the chance to reestablish himself in the minors, and the Tigers could give him a call if a need arises.

Tigers' Jorge Bonifacio: Inks MiLB deal with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio signed a minor-league deal that includes and invitation to spring training with the Tigers on Saturday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Bonifacio was let go by the Royals in late November but will now receive another chance within the American League Central. The 26-year-old appeared in only five major-league games in 2019 and struggled at Triple-A with a .222/.284/.417 slash line in 117 games. Bonifacio did have a decent .255/.320/.432 slash line during 2017 in 113 games with Kansas City, and Detroit will undoubtedly hope he's able to recapture that form.

Jorge Bonifacio: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio was released by the Royals on Monday.

Bonifacio was designated for assignment in order to make room on the 40-man roster for prospects the Royals wanted to protect from the Rule 5 draft, and the team appears to be ready to move on from the outfielder after he made major-league appearances in the last three seasons. Over 117 games for Triple-A Omaha last season, the 26-year-old hit .222/.284/.417 with 20 home runs and 121 strikeouts.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio was designated for assignment Wednesday.

He was cast off the 40-man roster in order to make room for players who needed to be protected from the Rule 5 draft. The 26-year-old outfielder has a .247/.319/.408 slash line and 94 wRC+ in 713 career plate appearances, and given the fact that he is a below-average defender, it's not surprising that the Royals were willing to move on.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

Bonifacio was called up from Omaha last week and went 7-for-20 with three doubles and three RBI in five starts. The-26-year-old struggled at Triple-A prior to his promotion with a .195/.250/.395 slash line in 58 games. Hunter Dozier (side) was activated off the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio was called up from Triple-A Omaha on Friday and is starting in left field versus the Twins, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Bonifacio will make his 2019 debut for the Royals despite struggling at Triple-A with a .195/.250/.395 slash line and 11 home runs in 58 games this season. The 26-year-old posted a .672 OPS in 69 contests with Kansas City last season.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

Bonifacio seemed to have a good shot at making the team as a reserve outfielder and occasional designated hitter, but he'll have to wait for his chance in the minors. He has an uninspiring .244/.317/.405 line in 182 career games, not good enough for a bat-first role.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Heads to bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Bonifacio will miss out on a tough matchup with Tribe right-hander Carlos Carrasco, which should prevent the outfielder's final numbers from taking another hit during what has been a rough September. After losing roughly half the season to suspension, Bonifacio hasn't flashed much power since being reinstated in late June, supplying just four home runs across 270 plate appearances.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Situated on bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio is not in the lineup Thursday against the Indians, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Bonifacio is hitting just .214/.300/.414 with three homers through 21 games this month, so he'll hit the bench for the third time in the last five games. Salvador Perez is serving as the DH in his place, opening up a spot for Cam Gallagher to start behind the dish.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Not in Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio is not starting Tuesday against the Reds.

The Royals can't fit in all their regulars with the game being played in a National League park. Brett Phillips will start in right field.

September 22, 2018 03:33 PM
Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Gets breather Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio is not in Saturday's starting lineup against the Tigers, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Bonifacio went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout Friday night, so he'll get a day off to regroup at the dish. Salvador Perez will slot in as the designated hitter in Bonifacio's stead.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Smacks three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio went 1-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Thursday's loss to the Tigers.

Bonifacio connected on a three-run blast in the first inning to get the scoring started in what would become a slugfest in Detroit on Thursday night. He doesn't carry much fantasy utility, as Bonifacio now owns a .234/.313/.376 slash line with four home runs and 23 RBI over 247 plate appearances on the season.

September 19, 2018 03:36 PM
Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio is not starting Wednesday against the Pirates.

With the game being played in the National League park, the Royals' regular lineup will be one man short. Bonifacio will be the one to miss out on this occasion, with Brett Phillips starting in right field for the first time in over two weeks after recovering from a shoulder injury.

September 16, 2018 12:24 PM
Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Heads to bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio is not in the lineup Sunday against the Twins.

Bonifacio sits out after receiving 10 straight starts. He hit a solid .270/.341/.432 over that stretch. Rosell Herrera will start in right field in his absence.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Smacks third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Thursday against the Twins.

Bonifacio took Alan Busenitz deep in the sixth inning to record his third home run of the season. He's shown little power in 198 at-bats this campaign, slugging just .369 and taking a step back from his intriguing 2017 debut.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Out of Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio is not in the lineup Tuesday against Cleveland, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.

Bonifacio has gone 9-for-21 over his last six games. He'll sit Tuesday, with Brett Phillips starting in right field and Ryan O'Hearn getting the call as the designated hitter.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Launches second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over Cleveland.

Bonifacio kicked off the scoring in the second inning, clubbing a solo homer over the fence in left to get the Royals on the board early. Following Monday's victory, he's pieced together a modest six-game hitting streak, going 9-for-21 with two extra-base hits and three RBI.

Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Orioles, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Bonifacio heads to the bench after going 4-for-11 with a walk while starting the last three games. Brett Phillips grabs the start in right field with Brian Goodwin starting in center field.

August 26, 2018 01:12 PM
Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Checks out of starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bonifacio is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Bonifacio returned from a back injury earlier in the weekend and started back-to-back contests, going a collective 2-for-7 with a run scored. He's expected to handle close to an everyday role in right field the rest of the way for the Royals, but Bonifacio will get a maintenance day in the series finale in light of the recent injury. Bonifacio's absence from the lineup opens up a spot in the outfield for Ryan O'Hearn.
