Nationals Release Roger Bernadina

WEDNESDAY: Bernadina has officially cleared release waivers and expects to sign with a new team shortly, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick (on Twitter).

MONDAY: The Nationals have released Roger Bernadina following the acquisition of David DeJesus, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter).

Bernadina, 29, is batting .179/.247/.270 with a pair of homers and three steals in 167 plate appearances this season. He's capable of handling all three outfield positions, though he hasn't graded out as a plus defender in center over the course of his career. Bernadina was earning $1.21MM this season after his first year of arbitration eligibility, so a non-tender seemed inevitable given his lack of production.
