Marlins' Bonifacio to have surgery on thumb

Miami Marlins center fielder Emilio Bonifacio will have surgery done on Friday to repair a ligament in his left thumb.

He is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks and was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday.

Bonifacio, who leads the majors with 20 stolen bases, was hurt during Friday's game against Cleveland on a head-first slide into second base. The 27- year-old is batting .268 in 39 games with six runs batted in and 19 runs scored.
