Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that the Cincinnati Reds have added to their outfield depth. Roger Bernadina will join the Reds on a minor league deal with an invitation to Spring Training.
Bernadina, nicknamed “The Shark,” split time between the Nationals and the Phillies last season, playing in 112 games, putting up a .181/.250/.295 slash line. This was a severe drop off from his breakout 2012 with the Nationals, where he posted a .291/.372/.405 slash line.
Roger will join a competition to be the Reds’ fourth outfielder behind Jay Bruce, Ryan Ludwick, and rookie Billy Hamilton. Skip Schumaker and Chris Heisey will also be in the mix for the outfield bench spot.
