Emilio Bonifacio 2B/LF.. CHC 1 Month

Emilio Bonifacio left Thursday's game versus the Pirates in the first inning with an apparent foot injury.

Bonifacio grounded out to shortstop leading off the game but got just one step out of the batter's box before collapsing in pain. He had to be helped off the field while sporting a noticeable limp. Bonifacio likely has some sort of ankle or foot ailment, but we'll know more when the Cubs provide an update on his condition shortly.

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.

The stolen base was Bonifacio's 13th of the season, good for fourth-best in the National League. He's fallen well off his pace after a ridiculous first month -- after hitting .214 in May, Bonifacio's overall line sits at .270/.319/.346.

Emilio Bonifacio became the first Cub since 1987 to score five runs in a game Monday against the Cardinals.

Bonifacio went 4-for-5 with a walk in the 17-5 rout. His five runs matched the high total in franchise history, last equaled by Jody Davis in 1987. Before that, Bill Madlock scored five times in a game in 1974. Those were the only two instances of a Cub scoring five runs since 1950. Overall, Bonifacio was the 41st player to get there since 2000. The last was Mark Trumbo last September.

Emilio Bonifacio went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and a stolen base against the White Sox on Tuesday.

The stolen base was Bonifacio's 11th of the year. His RBI single was one of the Cubs' four hits on the night, and it was his first hit in four games. The 29-year-old is still hitting .308 for the year.

Emilio Bonifacio went 2-for-6 with an RBI double and a stolen base in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

While Bonifacio hasn't been nearly as productive as he was to start the season, he's still hitting .337 and he stole his first base since April 20 -- his 10th of the season. He had struck out seven times in four games entering Wednesday. When he makes contact, Bonifacio is a pest; if he's not making contact, he's easy to handle, and therein lies his fantasy value.

Emilio Bonifacio went 2-for-5 with a run scored against the Reds on Tuesday.

Bonifacio has backed off his torrid pace somewhat since the start of the season, but the 29-year-old is still hitting .337 for the year. One thing that has cooled off is his stolen base production -- after stealing nine bases through his first 16 games, Bonifacio hasn't swiped a bag in his last seven games. A big part of his fantasy value lies in his stolen bases, so hopefully that aspect of his game comes back soon.
