Lisalverto Bonilla was tagged for six runs in 2 1/3 innings Monday in his start against the Blue Jays.

On the plus side, both pitchers who relieved Bonilla were so bad that his performance might wind up mostly forgotten by the club. Robert Stephenson allowed seven runs and 10 hits in two innings after taking over, and Jake Buchanan finished up by allowing four runs and 10 hits in 3 2/3 innings. Bonilla, who walked five of the 15 batters he faced tonight, is now 0-3 with a 7.71 ERA. He belongs in middle relief if he's going to stick around.

Lisalverto Bonilla gave up three runs in five innings during his start versus the Indians on Wednesday.

Two of the runs he allowed came on a Carlos Santana bomb in the third inning. Bonilla has a 6.17 ERA in 23 1/3 innings. The Reds' rotation is wide open due to injuries and poor performances but Bonilla will need to make some improvements if he wants to stick around.

Lisalverto Bonilla was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Rockies, allowing six runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings of work.

The right-hander walked three and struck out three on the night. The Rockies scratched out a pair of runs in the first inning then Bonilla was able to keep them off the board until an uprising in sixth. There, a three-run homer by Alexi Amarista provided the bulk of the damage. He'll carry a 6.38 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Indians in Cleveland. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
