The White Sox claimed him in the Rule 5 draft in December 1985. He went to spring training with the Sox and played 75 major league games in 1986 before the Sox traded him to the Pirates in July for Jose Deleon. Ken Harrelson was the White Sox GM at the time. I believe Larry Himes replaced him at the end of the season. Bonilla was developed by the Pirates, lost him in an oversight and traded to get him back half a season later.
I stand corrected.
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
