Roger Bernadina OF CIN 21 Days

Reds purchased the contract of OF Roger Bernadina from Triple-A Louisville.

Bernadina's inclusion on the roster was a cinch after Skip Schumaker's (shoulder) injury. Of course, he certainly earned it on his own by batting .413/.518/.739 with three homers in Cactus League play. He'll back up at all three outfield spots.

Roger Bernadina went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer against the Cubs on Saturday.

Starting in right field, Bernadina hit his third homer of the spring against Edwin Jackson in Saturday's first inning. He also singled in a run later in the game, and the outfielder is batting .417 in Cactus League play. With Skip Schumaker out a month due to a dislocated shoulder, Berandina is looking like a good bet to be on the Reds' roster on Opening Day.

Reds signed OF Roger Bernadina to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Bernadina looks the part with plenty of speed and some pop, but he's failed to hit consistently and is prone to lapses defensively. The 29-year-old batted just .181/.250/.295 over 112 games last season for the Nationals and Phillies. That said, he's a solid depth addition.

Roger Bernadina smacked a two-run homer in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

Bernadina didn't start, but stayed in the game after coming in as part of a double-switch in the fifth inning. The 29-year-old now has four extra-base hits (two homers) and five RBI in eight games since joining the Phillies last week. He may not play everyday, but there's enough power and speed here for him to be relevant in NL-only fantasy leagues.
