Jorge Bonifacio went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Wednesday in the loss to the Cardinals.

Sent to the bench by the Melky Cabrera acquisition, Bonifacio was given a reprieve Tuesday with the news that Alex Gordon was headed to the bench for a spell. Bonifacio, though, needs to capitalize quickly, since the Royals still seem fairly well committed to Gordon. Tonight won't help.
Aug 10 - 12:02 AM

Jorge Bonifacio went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in the loss to the Mariners on Friday.

The Melky Cabrera acquisition turned Bonifacio into a fourth outfielder and rendered him worthless in deep mixed leagues. It's not really through any fault of his own; he's been a consistent, average bat as a rookie. In fact, his .764 OPS is a match for Cabrera's .766 and far better than Alex Gordon's .594.
Aug 4 - 11:53 PM

Jorge Bonifacio went 2-for-4 and scored a run as the Royals topped the Tigers on Tuesday.

The rookie outfielder led the fourth inning off with a single and came around to score on an RBI single by Eric Hosmer. He has settled in nicely to the second spot in the Royals' lineup and is hitting .263/.333/.464 with 14 homers and 31 RBI on the year.
Jul 25 - 10:20 PM

Jorge Bonifacio finished 3-for-5 with a homer as the Royals defeated the Tigers on Monday.

Bonifacio has now homered in three consecutive starts for the hard-charging Royals. The 24-year-old outfielder owns a respectable .259/.331/.464 batting line with 14 home runs in 76 games this season.
Jul 24 - 11:35 PM

Jorge Bonifacio clubbed his 13th home run of the season as the Royals blasted their way past the White Sox on Sunday.

He finished the day 1-for-3 plus a walk. His solo shot came as part of back-to-back-to-back solo shots with Whit Merrifield and Eric Hosmer to get the Royals on the board in the fourth inning. Bonifacio has now homered in two straight games and is slashing .253/.327/.450 with 13 homers and 30 RBI.
Jul 23 - 5:35 PM

Jorge Bonifacio went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Bonifacio socked a solo homer off Francisco Liriano with one out in the first inning, his 11th long ball of the season and bumped his RBI total to 26. The 24-year-old outfielder is hitting to a .251/.308/.471 triple-slash on the season and has scored 29 runs in 192 at-bats.
Jun 25 - 5:45 PM

Jorge Bonifacio went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and three total RBI in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

Bonifacio launched a two-run homer to dead center off Johnny Cueto in the third inning. He would come through against Cueto once more in the sixth inning courtesy of an RBI double. He had been struggling with the bat for the last week-plus, but might be starting to come out of that rut, having recorded four hits in nine at-bats over the last two days.
Jun 14 - 7:25 PM

Jorge Bonifacio collected two singles with a walk and three RBI in Tuesday's road win against the Giants.

Bonifacio needed this game, as he has really been struggling. He entered the game with just three hits over his past 27 at-bats (.111) with 16 strikeouts to drop his average from .288 to .255 since June 3. He'll need a couple more performances like this before he can be trusted again in deeper mixed leagues.
Jun 14 - 3:13 AM

Jorge Bonifacio went 2-for-5 and hit his eighth homer Monday in the loss to the Astros.

Bonifacio has been the Royals' one real bright spot offensively this year, hitting .286 with eight homers in 38 games since his callup. He'll slump at some point, but it's starting to look like he'll deserve to stick as a regular.
Jun 6 - 1:02 AM

Jorge Bonifacio singled and double Tuesday against the Tigers.

He was one of only two players on either side in this one to reach base twice (teammate Whit Merrifield was the other). Bonifacio's free-swinging ways are sure to catch up to him eventually, but he's worth using in deeper mixed leagues for now.
May 30 - 11:26 PM

Jorge Bonifacio went 2-for-3 with a go-ahead two-run double, a walk, and a run scored in Friday’s 6-4 victory over the Indians.

The go-ahead rally in the eighth was set up by an error from shortstop Francisco Lindor. Bonifacio has quietly been one of the Royals’ best hitters since his call-up last month, batting .272/.333/.489 with six home runs and 15 RBI over 29 games.
May 26 - 10:36 PM

Jorge Bonifacio went deep again Tuesday, swatting a two-run shot in the Royals' win over the Yankees.

Bonifacio just missed a homer when he flied out to the warning track in the second inning. After striking out in the fifth, he took Adam Warren deep in the seventh to the opposite field to give the Royals the lead. Bonifacio, who will turn 24 in a couple weeks, has now homered in four of his last five games.
May 23 - 10:16 PM

Jorge Bonifacio went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Twins.

Bonifacio cracked home runs in two of the three games during the weekend series. Since being called up on April 21, the 23-year-old outfielder is hitting a respectable .270/.337/.446 with four homers and 10 RBI across 24 games played.
May 21 - 5:43 PM

Jorge Bonifacio went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Twins.

The homer was his third since his call-up and his first since May 1. All three of his homers have come off right-handers. The 23-year-old is batting .275/.346/.420 through his first 23 major league games. We don’t see the batting average sticking as long as he strikes out like this, but the at-bats should continue to be there.
