Jorge Bonifacio: Case to rule out or is there still evidence?

The power of his bat seems to fade over the years; being disciplined from the batter’s box isn’t among his learned manners, and his erratic defense of his persona in the outfield continues to cause the same headache it did on day one.

With all this, a judge would have sufficient grounds to rule out that someone continues to hold a starting position, however, this is not the case of Jorge Bonifacio in the Tigres del Licey squad, regardless of the fact that his performance continues to plummet thunderous shape.

After failing in two of three appearances on Sunday, the outfielder still hasn’t improved what has been a path of regrets in each participation in the Dominican Professional Baseball League from the 2020-21 to 2022-23 tournament, a period where he registers a microscopic . 186 batting average and .557 OPS, hitting just 15 extra-base hits.

The sample amount of this fateful course dates back to only 180 times at bat, although it should be noted that this is the nature of winter tournaments, scenarios in which the seasons are "flown".

The 29-year-old right-handed hitter does not raise his head after a superlative performance in 2019-20, by then being the protagonist of figures such as a .548 slugging average, after punishing the pitching of the circuit with numbers that quantify his 17 connections of multiple bases in a journey of 31 Regular Series games.

Returning to his performance in more recent times, Bonifacio’s results in the Minor Leagues seem to give his record a facelift, although it does not seem to be enough.

After completing 112 games with the Philadelphia Phillies in their Triple A branch, the lanky player combined for double figures in home runs (15) and tubes (17), however, this does not seem to be enough, evidenced by his pyrrhic SLG of .407 and an on-base percentage of just .336.

What evidence is in your favor?

What is reflected in statistics is made of an indelible ink, which is well in favor of the youngest of the Bonifacio brothers, who grew up with a remarkable performance within the league, in addition to having an age at which to consider him young in the spectrum of baseball and outside of it.

Added to the factor of his birth registration, the wait for his natural power continues to create expectations around him, despite not showing any resemblance to what were notable tournaments of his figure in the past.

In recent years, the native of Santo Domingo has experienced changes in his posture from the plate, as is the case with the position of his elbows and knees, although he continues without enjoying sufficiently sweet fruits.

Keeping Bonifacio in a starting role is costly for the Tigers, but the team seems to be hoping for vindication of his percentages. The question is: How much patience will they have? Will it be worth it in the end? Time will answer both.
