Bench option off the board: Bonifacio signs with Cubs


According to multiple reports, utility man Emilio Bonifacio has signed a minor league contract with the Cubs. Jon Heyman says he turned down big league contract offers from other teams because he felt Chicago gave him the best opportunity. There were never any reports indicating the Yankees had interest in Bonifacio, but he did make some sense for that final option bench spot. Oh well.

    I feel like I’ve seen this headline before.

    Like the previous thread about Drew, it makes sense if they are pursuing Diaz.

  3. Tom K says:

    I know beggars can’t be choosers, but I don’t get any of the fascination with this guy.

    Manny Banuelos for 5th starter…

  5. jjyank says:

    Meh. Wouldn’t have minded him as a bench guy, but Bonifacio is hardly someone to get upset over.

  6. RetroRob says:

    Bonaficio, however, doesn’t seem to draw the same polarizing responses as Drew. Yet, oddly, the debate over Drew isn’t even if he should be on the Yankees. Both sides, for the most part, agree he’d help. It’s around price and length of contract.
