Bernadina, 32, hasn’t cracked the majors since 2014, but has accumulated 1,480 plate appearances over parts of seven seasons. All told, he owns a .236/.307/.354 batting line with 28 home runs and 59 stolen bases.
A native of Curacao, Bernadina played a significant role with the Nationals earlier in his career, with his best season coinciding with D.C.’s breakout 2012 campaign. He ultimately appeared in the majors in six separate years with the Nats and also saw brief stints with the Phillies, Reds, and Dodgers.
Most recently, Bernadina suited up at Triple-A in the Mets organization. He was rather productive there, slashing .292/.376/.465 and swiping twenty bags. That showing suggests there’s still some life left in his legs and bat, even if he’s not quite a major league caliber player at this stage.
