Roger Bernadina returns to Reds roster


Roger Bernadina is back on the Reds roster.

Designated for assignment last week, Bernadina cleared waivers and Tuesday rejoined the Reds in Boston.

The Reds need outfield help with the loss of Jay Bruce. The two-time All-Star right fielder is expected to miss a month of games after successful meniscus surgery on Monday.  The Reds officially placed Bruce on the 15-day disabled list to make room for Bernadina.

Bernadina, Chris Heisey and Skip Schumaker are expected to get the bulk of the starts in right field while Bruce is out.

The Reds start a two game series in Boston before returning to Great American Ball Park this weekend.
