Blue Jays | Not worried about defensive woes

The Toronto Blue Jays aren't fretting the defensive shortcomings of 2B Emilio Bonifacio or INF Maicer Izturis. Bonifacio has four errors and Izturis has two entering Thursday, April 11. "He's just had a couple of games where it has been a tough go," manager John Gibbons said of Bonifacio. "I don't know him well enough, and I'm not in his head, but he has showed no signs that it has really affected him because he's getting after it out there."

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, the Blue Jays don't really have any other options in the infield aside from Mark DeRosa with Brett Lawrie (rib cage) on the DL. Izturis will lose significant playing time when Lawrie returns, but the good news for Bonifacio owners is that it doesn't look like he's being punished for his lack of defense - yet. That may change, however, when Gibbons has the option of Izturis over Bonifacio at the keystone.
