The race for second base continues, but the Blue Jays may decide not pick a winner, manager John Gibbons says.   Entering spring training, the official line said Maicer Izturis held the pole position, with Emilio Bonifacio also in the running. Spring games have borne out the offseason appraisal that Izturis is the more reliable defender and Bonifacio the better hitter.   Both have played well and may wind up rotating in and out of the lineup at second base depending in part on pitching matchups, Gibbons said, although he stressed that he has not made that decision.

Hopefully Bonifacio will play enough games at second base to qualify there in most fantasy leagues. If he is eligible at second, his valuable increases somewhat considerably. Regardless of where he plays though, Bonifacio will be a threat on the base paths and could swipe 40 bags if he plays every day. Draft him as a number four or five outfielder with the hope that he moves to second base rather quickly.
