Toronto Blue Jays OF Melky Cabrera (legs) will undergo an MRI exam on his legs Wednesday, May 15, to make sure he's not dealing with a major injury. He has been dealing with tightness in his hamstrings.
Fantasy Tip: With Rajai Davis (oblique) on the disabled list, Emilio Bonifacio will shift to the outfield to replace Cabrera. Bonifacio would become a decent addition to deep mixed rosters if Cabrera's injury keeps him out for extended time. Toronto could also choose to recall Anthony Gose or Moises Sierra in that case.

Toronto Blue Jays INF Emilio Bonifacio is starting at second base in place of INF Maicer Izturis for the second consecutive game Sunday, May 12, against the Boston Red Sox. "He's fine," manager John Gibbons said of Izturis. "We just need to get Bonifacio some ABs to see what we've got in him."

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Maicer Izturis (hamstring) is out with tightness in his hamstring Monday, April 22, and 2B Emilio Bonifacio is starting in his place. Bonifacio hasn't played at the keystone since April 12.
Fantasy Tip: Izturis has taken over as the starting second baseman in Toronto because John Gibbons feels it is his natural position. Bonifacio has lost out on playing time with the return of Brett Lawrie (rib cage) to third base and his own defensive woes at the keystone. Bonifacio should still be on rosters in deep mixed leagues for his stolen base contributions, but those opportunities will be fewer and far between.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Emilio Bonifacio has been getting regular playing time so far this season, but he is expected to shift to a super-utility role if the club's starters are healthy.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Rajai Davis will play right field, INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio will play center field and OF/3B Jose Bautista will play third base against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, April 14.

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.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Sunday, March 17, that he might not pick a winner for the second base job. Entering spring training, INF Maicer Izturis was believed to have the leg up, but OF Emilio Bonifacio is also in the running. However, Gibbons acknowledged depending in part on pitching matchups, he might rotate Bonifacio and Izturis in and out of the spot.

Updating a previous report, Blue Jays 3B Brett Lawrie (intercostal) has a mild strain near his 10th rib and left intercostal muscle that will likely keep him out for two to three weeks. He's expected to be ready for opening day, but 2B Emilio Bonifacio would likely step in at third base if Lawrie isn't ready.

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Emilio Bonifacio made two throwing errors Friday, March 1, and his struggles in the infield continue. He is competing with INF Maicer Izturis for the starting second base job.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said the team will keep a close eye on how 1B Adam Lind fares against left-handed pitching this spring, and they're currently debating whether they think he can be an everyday player. "We're looking at it," Gibbons said. "That's what we want to (evaluate), because we have some right-handed bats that could fill that hole if we're stronger that way." Lind hit .202 against lefties last year and hits .220 against them in his career. Gibbons downplayed the possibility that OF Colby Rasmus could be involved in a platoon at first base. INF Emilio Bonifacio and OF Rajai Davis are intriguing options off the bench against righties.
