Player Profile: Emilio Bonifacio

I have five cards of Emilio Bonifacio. This one is from 2008 Topps. 

Playing career: Second baseman Emilio Bonifacio has came up with the Diamondbacks in 2007 and has since played for the Nationals, Marlins, Royals, Cubs and Braves. He has put up respectable but not eye-popping numbers for second-divison teams, so has been kind of an anonyomous player for the most part. In 705 career games he is hitting .264 with 12 HR, 151 RBI and 158 SB.

Where he is now: He was traded from the Cubs to the Braves in a deadline deal. His combined stats currently are, in 93 games this season, .275 with 2 HR, 20 RBI and 20 SB. He last played yesterday, going 0-1 with a run scored in a loss to the Marlins.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is seventh when you type Emili, between Emilio Pucci, a fashion designer, and Emilios, a pizzeria in Commack, NY. There do not appear to be any other prominent Emilio Bonifacios.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Josh Bonifay.
