    Veteran outfielder Roger Bernadina has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Reds, according to Mark Sheldon of MLB.com.

  4. Plays of the Day: Roger Bernadina makes a pair of nifty grabs in Phillies victory

    Aug 25, 2013, 7:25 PM EST

    Roger Bernadina

    Roger Bernadina was very supportive of his pitching staff today, making a pair of impressive catches to help keep the Diamondback offense at bay. The athleticism is made all the more impressive considering that this afternoon’s game started just 11 hours after last night’s knock-down, drag-out, 18-inning affair ended. The first great grab occurred In…

  5. Nationals castoff Roger Bernadina signs with Phillies

    Aug 21, 2013, 3:15 PM EST

    Roger Bernadina

    This would have been a lot more fun before the Nationals-Phillies rivalry involved a pair of sub-.500 teams, but Roger Bernadina has signed with Philadelphia after being released by Washington. Bernadina lost his spot on the Nationals’ bench following the trade for David DeJesus, but before struggling this season he’s generally been a decent fourth…

    Milwaukee Brewers v Chicago Cubs

    Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that the Nationals have acquired outfielder David DeJesus from the Cubs for a player to be named later. Washington is 60-63 and 9.5 games out of a playoff spot, so the pickup obviously isn’t for this season. DeJesus’ contract includes a $6.5 million team option (or $1.5 million buyout) for…

    As expected the Nationals have activated Bryce Harper from the disabled list after the 20-year-old outfielder missed the past 31 games with a knee injury stemming from his May 13 collision with the wall at Dodger Stadium. Harper went 4-for-11 with a homer and three total extra-base hits during a brief minor-league rehab assignment, which…

    Washington Nationals v New York Mets

    Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth had to leave this afternoon’s game against the Rockies after suffering a left groin strain, due in part to dehydration from the flu, reports Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. Werth had singled to lead off the inning, but was pinch-run for by Roger Bernadina. Werth entered today’s game with a .256/.312/.413…

    Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper continues to battle bursitis in his left knee and is unlikely to play in this weekend’s series against the Braves, per Mark Zuckerman. Zuckerman suggests that a stint on the disabled list is becoming a possibility. Harper hasn’t played since Sunday, when he went 1-for-3 in the series finale against the…

    New York Mets Lucas Duda reacts after he hit to get winning run against New York Yankees in New York

    Mets 2, Yankees 1: Yesterday I cracked that Mariano Rivera, who was asked to throw out the first pitch by the Mets, would likely throw the last pitch in the “Yankees likely victory over the Mets.” Shows ya what I know. The greatest closer in the history of baseball came into the ninth with a…

  13. Jayson Werth could miss another two weeks with hamstring injury

    May 20, 2013, 10:36 PM EST

    Jayson Werth

    The Nationals have Bryce Harper back in the starting lineup tonight against the Giants, but it appears that Jayson Werth‘s absence from a hamstring injury will be a little longer than initially expected. Nationals manager Davey Johnson told Amanda Comak of the Washington Times that he received an “alarming” report on Werth today. No word…

  14. Bryce Harper to miss second straight game following procedure for ingrown toenail

    May 11, 2013, 1:50 PM EST

    Bryce Harper AP

    Bryce Harper had a procedure yesterday to remove an ingrown toenail from his right foot and will sit out his second straight game today. Amanda Comak of the Washington Times notes that Harper still felt a little tenderness in his toe while hitting today. Still, it’s considered relatively minor and he could be back as…

  15. Matt Harvey is real, and he’s spectacular

    Apr 19, 2013, 9:45 PM EST

    Washington Nationals  v New York Mets

    Matt Harvey outdueled wunderkind Stephen Strasburg in Queens tonight, holding the Nationals to one run over seven innings. The 24-year-old right-hander struck out seven in as many innings. Most impressively, he worked his way out of a bases loaded, no out jam in the seventh, even after a brutal throwing error by Daniel Murphy put…

    Andrelton Simmons

    After defending champion Japan barely survived Brazil’s upset bid, South Korea was dealt quite a blow in its attempt to return to the World Baseball Classic finals, losing to The Netherlands 5-0 in Pool B play. Diegomar Markwell, Orlando Yntema, Leon Boyd and Mark Pawelek combined on the shutout for the Dutch. Shortstop Andrelton Simmons…

  18. Joe Mauer, David Wright commit to Team USA for WBC

    Dec 3, 2012, 5:22 PM EST

    Joe Mauer

    We’ll hear plenty about players opting out of the World Baseball Classic over the next couple of months. How about a couple of guys that are in: Minnesota’s Joe Mauer and the Mets’ David Wright. The Mauer commitment makes it less of a big deal now if Buster Posey decides not to play for Team…

    Before this season Nationals outfielder Roger Bernadina was mostly known for big muscles and small production at the plate, but now he’s hitting .308 with an .800 OPS in 103 games as part-time player. His muscles, however, haven’t changed, as teammate Chad Tracy explained to James Wagner of the Washington Post: The guy is a…

    Mike Morse Getty

    UPDATE: Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that X-rays on Morse’s hand came back negative. He’ll likely have to miss a few days, but it looks like the Nats caught a break. 8:09 PM: The Nationals just announced that Morse left the game with a right hand contusion. We’ll likely hear more on his status after…

    Yankees 8, Rangers 2: I suppose the critical mass of people mocking the Yankees’ pickup of Derek Lowe was just too delicious for God or Loki or Fate or whatever controls our world to pass up, because He/it/whatever decided to play it funny with us and allow Mr. Lowe to toss four scoreless innings in…

  22. Roger Bernadina makes a bonkers catch to end the Nats-Astros game

    Bernadina catch

    Bottom of the 12th in Houston. The Nats leading the Astros 3-2. Two out and runners on first and second for Houston, Brett Wallace at the plate. Then: a drive to deep left center!  It’s heading for the wall! Roger Bernadina on his horse and … Ballgame.  Pretty sweet grab, dude.

    Rockford Files

    Tigers 6, Yankees 5: Miguel Cabrera homered for the third straight game. The dude is good. The Tigers have won six straight and, with the White Sox loss, pull to within a half game. Speaking of the Tigers, I found out last night that one of the people I hung out with at Comerica Park…

    last-place-ribbon

    Craig Calcaterra’s all-encompassing game recap post this morning mentioned the play briefly, but it really has to be seen to believe. First, a little context: Houston and Washington were tied at 4-4 in the 11th inning, with Nationals outfielder Roger Bernadina on first base as the go-ahead run with no outs. Kurt Suzuki laid down…

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers 7, Yankees 2: Justin Verlander was amazing, striking out 14. I’m not sure why Jim Leyland kept him in there for 132 pitches given that the Tigers had a five run lead by the sixth inning, but I guess the fans liked it. And heck, he was still throwing 100 miles per hour, so…
