Emilio Bonifacio Headed To Disabled List For 3rd Time In 2012

After leaving the game on Tuesday in the second inning of the Miami Marlins road contest against the Arizona Diamondbacks, outfielder Emilio Bonifacio is headed back to the 15-day disabled list with a right knee sprain, according to the team's website.

This is the third time this season that Bonifacio has been placed on the DL and there is a possibility that this injury could bring an end to his 2012 campaign.

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen feels that with the team's current place in the standings -- last in the NL East -- there is no reason for the 27-year-old to take the field until he's healthy:

"If we're not going anywhere, why are we going to take a chance for him to get hurt again, to go to Minor League rehab and do all kinds of stuff to come back?" Guillen said. "To me, it's up to him. But why risk something that shouldn't be risked?"
