Cubs sign Emilio Bonifacio to minor league deal, per source.
Bonifacio should provide the Cubs with decent infield depth. With Darwin Barney at second and a competition between Donnie Murphy and Luis Valbuena at third, it seems like an opportune situation for Bonifacio to potentially make an impact. His career slash line of .262/.322/.340 isn't all that impressive, but his performance last season as a second-half pick-up by the Royals in which he slashed .285/.352/.348 with 16 stolen bases and an 88.9-percent success rate stands out strongly. Should he maintain that form, the Cubs just might have to find him a home on the 25-man roster.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Derrick Rose will not play against the Bucks Wednesday.
Rose was doing full-contact drills Monday and participating in 5-on-5 work Tuesday. He's building up his conditioning and it shouldn't be much longer before he's back on the court. How many minutes he logs per game once he does return might be in question as the Bulls are looking more towards the playoffs than anything else. Analysis: Howard Bender
Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) wil play Wednesday.
Jones has missed the last six games with a collapsed lung, so to see him get back on the court Wednesday is great news just from a humanistic standpoint. If he can continue to shine glass as he's done throughout the season (7.3 boards per game), then he'll be a nice asset down the stretch. Analysis: Howard Bender
