The National League leader in stolen bases will have his count of steals stalled for at least 15 days.

The Miami Marlins' Emilio Bonifacio, who has played both center field and second base for the team this season, is having a below-average offensive season: .268/.351/.315 for an OPS+ of 84, although he is leading the National League in stolen bases with 20.

That number will have to go on hold for a while; Bonifacio sprained his left thumb:
Bonifacio was injured Friday when he was thrown out attempting to steal second base in the fifth inning. It was the first time Boni was caught this season, snapping a 20-for-20 streak to start the year and 21 straight dating back to last season.

Now, that injury is putting him on the disabled list:

After a slow start, the Marlins are 13-5 in May.
