Cubs outfielder/utility player Emilio Bonifacio is out indefinitely after an MRI on Saturday revealed a right oblique strain suffered earlier in the week, according to team beat reporter Patrick Mooney for CSNChicago.com.

Results of the MRI come one day after Chicago put the 29-year-old outfielder on the disabled list. He injured himself while grounding out to lead off Thursday’s game against the Pirates, a 4-0 loss in Pittsburgh.

After a hot start in April, Bonifacio is now batting .266/.311/.344 with one home run, 16 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 61 games this season, his first with Chicago.

The Cubs are last in the NL Central at 27-38.
