Bernadina Clears Waivers, Will Rejoin Reds Tuesday

MONDAY: C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Bernadina has cleared waivers and will accept an outright assignment to Triple-A Louisville. The Reds will then recall Bernadina tomorrow to rejoin the team in place of the injured Jay Bruce, who will be out three to four weeks due to minor knee surgery.

SATURDAY: The Reds have designated outfielder Roger Bernadina for assignment, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer tweets. The move clears space for Skip Schumaker (who had a dislocated shoulder) to return from the disabled list.

Bernadina, 29, hit .143/.294/.179 in 35 plate appearances with the Reds, who signed him to a minor-league deal in January. In a seven-year big-league career also spent with the Nationals and Phillies, he has hit .237/.307/.355 in 1,285 plate appearances while playing all three outfield positions.
