Major Moves: Veras gone, Bonifacio to AAA
The Marlins just announced several major moves, likely coming from a management meeting after last night’s loss to the Reds.
- Jose Veras was designate for assignment
- Emilio Bonifacio was option to AAA New Orleans
- Chris Leroux was called up from AAA
- Brett Carroll was reinstated from the Disabled List
Veras struggled to get outs recording an ERA in the mid 14s while Bonifacio didn’t show any improvement after a challenging 2009 season. Perhaps playing everyday in a lower-pressure environment will allow him to work on the fundamental values he can bring to a game (getting on base, using his speed, etc.)
