The Reds have designated outfielder Roger Bernadina for assignment and called up pitcher Carlos Contreras from Double-A Pensacola, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The Reds had signed Bernadina to a one-year, $1 million contract in January. It isn’t the first time they have DFAed Bernadina — they did so May 3, sent him outright to Triple-A on the 5th, and recalled him on the 6th.
Bernadina, 30, slashed a meager .153/.286/.203 over 71 plate appearances for the Reds.
Contreras, 23, posted a 2.70 ERA with a 27/11 K/BB ratio in 20 innings spanning three starts and six relief appearances for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos.
