    Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago reports that the Cubs have signed infielder/outfielder Emilio Bonifacio to a minor league contract. This confirms a report from Ildefonso Urena on Twitter. Bonifacio hit free agency earlier this week after he was designated for assignment by the Royals. He went unclaimed on waivers because of his $3.5 million salary,…

  20. Royals release Emilio Bonifacio, eat a half-million bucks

    Emilio Bonifacio Getty

    Kansas City has released Emilio Bonifacio after the utility man and his $3.5 million contract predictably passed through waivers. Because his one-year deal was an arbitration avoidance it’s not fully guaranteed, so by releasing him the Royals are only on the hook for around $575,000. Or maybe “only” is a better way to put it.…

  21. What on earth are the Royals doing now?

    Bruce Chen

    When the Royals re-signed Bruce Chen to a one-year, $4.25 million contract this week, it was generally met with tepid approval. One could argue that he’s 90 percent of the pitcher Jason Vargas is for half of the salary and one-quarter the commitment. So, that’s not bad. But then came the fallout. First, it was…

  22. Royals designate Emilio Bonifacio for assignment

    Emilio Bonifacio Getty

    The Royals officially re-signed veteran left-hander Bruce Chen today and they designated infielder Emilio Bonifacio for assignment in order to make room for him on the 40-man roster. The move is somewhat curious, as the Royals and Bonifacio avoided arbitration two weeks ago by agreeing to a one-year, $3.5 million contract. However, contracts via arbitration…

  24. The Royals could have interest in Mark Ellis

    Nov 30, 2013, 11:25 AM EST

    Mark Ellis Getty

    The Dodgers inked Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero to a four-year, $28 million contract in October and intend to give him a shot at the starting second base job in the spring, which means that Mark Ellis will likely be playing elsewhere next season. Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star speculates that his next stop…
