Bonifacio was pushed off the 40-man roster of the crosstown White Sox on August 16 after batting just .167/.198/.192 with one stolen base in 47 games. He stole 26 bases in 110 games last season between the Cubs and Braves. Look for the Northsiders to use him in a utility and pinch-running role in September.

The 30-year-old Bonifacio will report to the Cubs’ Triple-A affiliate in Iowa for now.
