Royals prospect OF Jorge Bonifacio hit a grand slam for his first home run of the 2014 season on Tuesday.
Bonifacio, the younger brother of big leaguer Emilio Bonifacio, is still batting only .095 through Double-A Northwest Arkansas' first six games, and the grand slam was his first extra-base hit of the season. The 20-year-old should start to settle in at the plate, as he finished the 2013 season at the level by batting .301/.371/.441 with seven doubles, two home runs and a 23/11 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 25 games.

Jorge Bonifacio went 2-for-2 with a home run and three RBI Monday against the White Sox.

Bonifacio, one of the Royals' top prospects, enjoyed a fine afternoon after taking over in right field for Norichika Aoki in the fifth inning. He drove in a run with a single in the sixth, then hit a two-run blast in the eighth inning. If he plays well in the minors, Bonifacio could earn a call-up late in the season.

Royals prospect outfielder Jorge Bonifacio is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a hand injury.

It's believed that he's dealing with a broken hamate bone. Bonifacio, 19, was hitting .325/.404/.452 with one home run, 20 RBI and an .856 OPS in 34 games this season with High-A Wilmington. Baseball America ranked him as the organization's No. 4 prospect over the winter.
