Marlins Looking For Help Following Bonifacio Injury

The Marlins announced today that Emilio Bonifacio will miss 4-6 weeks due to left thumb surgery, and Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports (on Twitter) that the team is looking at "possible outside fits" to replace him. Bryan Petersen has been playing center field in the meantime.

Bonifacio, 27, was hitting .268/.351/.315 in 170 plate appearances before getting hurt. He still leads the league with 20 steals (in 21 chances) despite not playing for nearly a week. As the Red Sox have shown during their rash of injuries, the market for outfield help isn't great the moment. Boston acquired Marlon Byrd and Scott Podsednik in separate trades in recent weeks to cover for injuries.

Aubrey Huff plays a mean LF! 😀

Hey so I heard that there’s a guy in the Bay Area that’s been pushed off of his natural position to LF, he could probably be had cheaply (in terms of prospects), mostly just salary relief is needed, that’s all…

He’s also really fast, like Bonifacio was!

Jeff Francoeur will take some naked BP with everyone. Team Unity!

I’d hate for KC to trade Francoeur, because we love him here, but if they can get young pitching prospects of any value then they probably need to look into this.

You can have Alex Presley or Jose Tabata…

Presley for Sanchez?

I’d agree with it from Pittsburgh’s persepective but not sure if Miami would. Sanchez was pretty solid the past two seasons.

Tony Plush could be had.

Jason Bay could be had for a bag of balls, but Andres Torres could be had for a lousy prospect.
