Emilio Bonifacio's position

Left bench. He should be the 'odd man out' who plays almost every game anyways as a utility player. We've learned enough about how not having depth can hurt. Bonifacio's defense is nothing special, so you can stick him anywhere in my opinion.

 

Utility should be an option.

 

 

Poll edited.

 

I did not include utility because, realistically, the Marlins have too many holes for next year to fill them all. In all likelihood, Bonifacio will play every day at one of the listed positions. 2B/CF seems more probable than 3B/LF. Still edited the poll for opinions, though.

Next year he will be the starting 2B, but I think the team would be better off with him as Mr. Everywhere and playing most games but all over the field. Unfortunately, as pointed out, 2B options are thin.

 

If the team is going young for a year or two to build a core and if Coghlan's knee is healed I would give him 1 more chance to succeed. Otherwise, just play Bonifacio there.

2B...don't really like him in CF, his defense isn't very good out there...I like him in the everyday lineup though...

 

Haha, I was about to say the same thing flip-flopped - preferring him in CF and that his defense at 2B wasn't very good.

 

But, I voted 2B just because I'm hopeful the F.O. actually gets a legit CF before next year, meaning Boni would most likely play 2nd.

I wont knock his glove, he is at least fairly average everywhere on the field(but not much better). Bonifacio's bat is what I do not care for so much. He has no plate discipline and relies almost entirely on infield slap hits to get on base. In the stretches when that isnt working, he is essentially worthless.

Bonifacio is not a horrific defender, but he's definitely a negative outfielder. All of the defensive metrics seem to agree. He has the speed to cover ground, but doesn't always take the best routes and has a subpar arm.

 

I've been saying it for the last year or so, but Bonifacio is better suited as infielder. He's not a good defensive outfielder.
