7/30 Bonifacio rumors
Cubs GM Jed Hoyer hinted on Tuesday that the team may move some of the players who will be free agents after this season, and that list apparently includes Emilio Bonifacio. There were reports Wednesday that the Giants, Royals, Mariners and Reds were looking at the switch-hitting Bonifacio, 29, who was batting .279 in 298 plate appearances for the Cubs. This was Bonifacio’s first season in Chicago and he has been slotted into the leadoff spot for most of the year. He did miss time from mid June to mid July with a strained right rib cage.
