Emilio Bonifacio 2B/3B.. CHC 1 Day

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Emilio Bonifacio is "drawing interest."

It makes sense, as Bonifacio isn't part of the Cubs' long-term plans and he could be valuable on a contending team as a utility player. The speedster is batting .271/.312/.353 with 14 steals over 68 games this season. Heyman says that the Cubs also figure to shop left-handed relievers James Russell and Wesley Wright.

Emilio Bonifacio (oblique) has gone 3-for-6 at the plate in his first two rehab games with the Arizona League Cubs.

He was the DH on Friday before playing second base Saturday. Cubs manager Rick Renteria wouldn't reveal a timetable for Bonifacio's return, but it shouldn't be long provided that he feels good. ''That's something that we need to make sure that we're mindful of because intercostals and all those types of injuries can be chronic over the long haul - they can reoccur,'' Renteria said. ''We're going to take it as slowly as we have to or as quickly as we have to. It just depends on how he's moving along.''

Emilio Bonifacio (oblique) has yet to resume baseball activities.

Bonifacio has been on the disabled list for a week and a half due to a strained right oblique, and it appears that he hasn't made much progress. Obviously, a return when he's first eligible on Saturday isn't going to happen.

Emilio Bonifacio went 3-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Bonifacio was also caught stealing for the fifth time in 18 attempts. The 29-year-old has struggled to keep up his torrid start, as Sunday's three-hit game was his first since he had four hits on May 12. Propped up by his hot hitting out of the gate, Bonifacio is still hitting .274/.321/.357 on the year.
