Royals designate Emilio Bonifacio for assignment

The Kansas City Royals have designated utility player Emilio Bonifacio for assignment.

Bonifacio was designated for assignment so the Royals could add the recently signed Bruce Chen to their 40-man roster. The Royals now will try to work out a trade of Bonifacio before giving him his release.

Bonifacio, 28, hit .243/.295/.331 in 136 games spread across the Royals and Toronto Blue Jays last season. He was 28-of-36 in stolen base attempts.
