#9. 2B/SS/3B/OF Emilio Bonifacio
Another utility man on the list is Emilio Bonifacio of the Chicago White Sox, who is in a similar situation as Prado, in that the Sox expected more than they got this season. Different then Prado, Bonifacio can not only play anywhere in the infield, but he can play outfield as well, and although San Francisco is fairly set in the outfield, more depth can never hurt.
Bonifacio has been limited in his at-bats this year due to injuries, but if Bonifacio can get on track some point in the month of August, their will be teams wanting to add the 9-year veteran.
Another aspect that Bonifacio can bring to the team is speed. Besides Gregor Blanco and Angel Pagan, San Francisco is a pretty content and slow team. They rely on clutch hitting and smart base running to score their runs. That is great and all, but speed is a tool that every team wants.
