Bonilla signed as an international free agent with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2008. He was named to appear in the All-Star Futures Game in 2012, but was unable to play due to a thumb injury.[1] On December 9, 2012, the Phillies traded Bonilla to the Texas Rangers with Josh Lindblom for Michael Young.[2]

The Rangers promoted Bonilla to the major leagues on September 2, 2014.[3] He made his major league debut on September 4, pitching three innings against the Seattle Mariners, and allowing two hits.[4] Bonilla started the 2015 season the 15-day disabled list due to shoulder impingement.[5] On April 11, it was announced Bonilla had also suffered an elbow injury.
