As relayed by Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the Marlins placed speedster Emilio Bonifacio on the 15-day disabled list after an MRI on his right knee Wednesday revealed a sprain.

Bonifacio suffered the injury late in Tuesday’s 6-5 defeat of the Diamondbacks. It’s not considered serious, but the 27-year-old will rest up for at least the next two weeks to avoid making it any worse.

Bonifacio has registered a .258/.330/.316 slash line with one home run, three doubles, 30 stolen bases and 11 RBI in 64 games played this season. He also missed a good chunk of time earlier this summer because of a sprained thumb.

The Marlins recalled left-handed reliever Dan Jennings in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
