Someone photoshop Roger Bernadina in a Phillies uniform.

The Phillies have signed OF Roger Bernadina and optioned Michael Martinez back to triple-A Lehigh Valley, according to their official Twitter account.¬†The Phils’ allegedly had interest in Bernadina¬†when the 29 year old was released from the Nationals earlier this week.

The addition of Bernadina could really help the Phillies in the outfield, as he could see a lot of time in center field with Ben Revere still sidelined. He had a pretty good season last year for the Nationals in a backup role, but has struggled in 2013. However, he has a very good stolen base percentage (56/67).

He’ll wear number 3.

    At least mini is gone… bernadina will be a good back up outfielder and pinch runner, he’s worth a look at least I guess…

    I read on MLB trade rumors that he was granted his release, and I knew it would be a matter of time before this signing was announced lol
