The Marlins are set to activate Emilio Bonifacio from the disabled list on Friday. The utility outfielder/infielder has been out since mid-may after having surgery to repaired ligament damage to his thumb.

Although Bonifacio went just 2-19 in his rehab assignment games, his speed and positional eligibility make him a must start in all formats. He logged an amazing 20 stolen bases in just 39 games prior to the injury, and will likely continue to be a base stealing and run scoring threat at the top of Ozzie Guillen’s lineup.
