Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Lined up to split right field and DH duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
