Emilio Bonifacio: Part of Platoon at 2B

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Bonifacio and Maicer Izturis are likely to platoon at second base, MLB.com reports. "I think there will be enough playing time for both guys. I don't believe at this stage one guy is going to have the job 140-games-plus. It can evolve -- someone could run away with it -- but they've both played well," general manager Alex Anthopoulos said.

Recommendation: Bonifacio would get less playing time in the platoon as the right-handed batter. However, he may also get playing time in the outfield as a reserve and may still steal bases as a pinch hitter. However, it looks like he'll have a bit less playing time than expected to begin the season.
