The Nationals have designated veteran utilityman Emilio Bonifacio for assignment, the club announced. Righty James Bourque was also optioned down as the team trimmed its active roster as required.
Bonifacio, 35, hadn’t seen the majors in the past two seasons but drew the Nats’ attention as an offseason target. He seemed to have a bead on a utility role but ultimately saw little action, striking out twice in three plate appearances.
The Nationals ended up securing the services of Josh Harrison, who has been given more opportunities in the early going. And the team evidently still prefers not to give up on the out-of-options Wilmer Difo. That left Bonifacio on the chopping block.
Surprised Bonifacio lasted this long. I would of predicted he be gone the day after the base running mistake against the Yankees
He will hook up with another club. He doesn’t quit
No longer Bonifide!
Emilio is a girl’s name
The person who posted this comment drinks his own piss.
That lasted long
Marlins I bet
More like Emilio Bonifaci-no.
Welcome to Miami young man!
Was always a way over rated player
As Yogi wouldve said, he was never overrated enough to be overrated.

Saw Boni in the Nats uniform and couldn’t believe it. He was done when he was a Blue Jay. Speedster who couldn’t bunt well or field well. Wasn’t the smartest player either. Showed that again when he ran into Robles in the outfield.
