Emilio Bonifacio Injury Update: Outfielder Awaits MRI Results On Knee

Miami Marlins outfielder Emilio Bonifacio is injured once again. The 27-year-old left Tuesday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the second inning with pain in his knee, and will miss Wednesday's doubleheader according to The Palm Beach Post:

"It started bothering me when I made the first throw third (base) and then after the other one. I made two to third and one to the plate," he said.

"I've never felt that. I was concerned. I can't really step really hard."

Bonifacio started the year off leading the league in stolen bases, but suffered a thumb injury which landed him on the disabled list until mid-July. He re-injured the thumb again on Aug. 4 and there was fear that his season would be over, but Bonafacio was reinstated Aug. 25.

He is listed as day-to-day.
