Bonifacio also missed time earlier this year with a sprained thumb, so he finishes the season with just 64 games after playing a career-high 152 games in 2011. He also regressed offensively, hitting .258 with a .645 OPS after batting .296 with a .753 OPS last year, although Bonifacio did steal 30 bases while being caught only three times.
In his absence Justin Ruggiano and Gorkys Hernandez are splitting time as the Marlins’ center fielder, and Ruggiano at least has emerged as a value player by hitting .326 with 13 homers and a .972 OPS in 75 games at age 30.
