Trade deadline not likely to save Emilio Bonifacio's value


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) After a hot start to the season that saw him leap to Fantasy relevance, Emilio Bonifacio has been in a long decline -- partially fueled by a disabled list stint --that has seen him hit just .246/.279/.354 with four stolen bases in his last 40 starts, a stretch of 188 plate appearances before he was acquired by the Braves. 

Despite this, Bonifacio is still owned in 48 percent of CBSSports.com leagues. The deadline-day move to send him from Chicago to Atlanta is unlikely to open up too much more playing time for the super-utility man. Fantasy owners still clinging to whatever semblance of hope is left would be wise to cut ties with Bonifacio at this point.

Hitters to start in Week 18


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/27/2014) Need a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 18 (July 28-Aug. 3)? You won't find one much better than Austin Jackson. Of course, he's not the only "start" for the week. Stephen Vogt, Mike Napoli, Emilio Bonifacio, Chase Headley and Jed Lowrie also fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Start a good sign for Emilio Bonifacio


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/22/2014) After missing more than a month with a strained oblique, Cubs utility player Emilio Bonifacio came off the DL Tuesday. But the bigger news for Fantasy owners is that he started his first game back. With Arismendy Alcantara now up in the big leagues and Chris Coghlan and Justin Ruggiano crushing it in recent weeks, his starting role was less than assured.

And frankly, it still is. Bonifacio's start Tuesday was against a left-hander, Eric Stults, and the switch-hitter entered the day batting .362 against lefties compared to just .230 against righties. Given that Chris Coghlan, who bats left-handed, was out of the lineup Tuesday, this could have the makings of a platoon.

As an everyday player, Bonifacio's steals potential and versatility would make him a nice find in Rotisserie leagues. As a part-timer, he's nothing more than waiver fodder.

If you need steals, you certainly have nothing to lose by making a move for him now, but understand he's hardly an open-and-shut case.
