The Dodgers have reportedly signed former Reds, Phillies and Nationals outfielder Roger Bernadina to a minor-league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Bernadina, 30, slashed .153/.286/.203 over 71 plate appearances for the Reds this season. He started 12 games, 11 in the outfield and one at first base.
Bernadina was designated for assignment when the Reds called up pitcher Carlos Contreras on June 21. Bernadina was previously designated for assignment on May 3 when Skip Schumaker was activated from the disabled list, but rejoined the team three days later when Jay Bruce was put on the DL.
Fox Sports Ohio ran a nice feature on Bernadina in the midst of spring training.
The Albuquerque Isotopes’ outfield is currently a bit cluttered. Mike Baxter, Trayvon Robinson and Brian Cavazos-Galvez are healthy. Infielder/outfielder Casio Grider was recently recalled from Double-A, Carl Crawford is currently in Albuquerque on a rehab assignment and Joc Pederson is on the disabled list with a mild shoulder separation.
