    Use a waiver on Bonifacio?

    It's not 2-3 weeks, it's 4-6 weeks. And even if he is ready before the season ends, the Marlins will probably give him extra time since they are pretty much out of contention. When someone gets injured near the end of a season and that team is out of the playoff race, almost all of the time, they leave the injured player out longer than needed to give them a better chance to have the player at 100% for the next season. If they play him, they risk him injuring himself again and maybe worse than before. His season is done.

    • No it's 2-3.

      "Emilio Bonifacio's thumb injury isn't as bad as initially feared, and the Marlins believe that he could return to action within the next 2-3 weeks.

      The Marlins thought Bonifacio might be done for the season when he re-injured his left thumb on Friday evening. As it turns out, the speedy second baseman could return to the playing field before the end of August. Aug 4 - 4:14 PM"

    • Easy there no need to get defensive. Your whole point was that his season is done, which isn't the case. Wasn't trying to be rude in pointing out 2-3 vs 4-6 weeks, but that difference pretty much invalidates everything else you said. Simple mistake, not a big deal. I'm probably not going to pick him up anyway unless something drastic happens in the next few days.
