The outfielder will report to Triple-A Albuquerque.

The Dodgers have agreed to sign outfielder Roger Bernadina to a minor league deal, according to a major league source. Bernadina, who was recently granted his release by the Reds, will report to Triple-A Albuquerque after choosing the Dodgers over offers from multiple other teams.

Bernadina, 30, hit .153 with 5 RBI in 44 games with Cincinnati on the season before being designated for assignment and subsequently released. He appeared at all three outfield positions as well as first base during that time, and will head to Triple-A to provide depth behind Dodgers' outfielders Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Yasiel Puig and Scott Van Slyke.

In seven major league seasons with the Nationals (2008-2012), Phillies (2013) and Reds (2014), Bernadina is a lifetime .236 hitter with 27 HR and 117 RBI in 539 games. He is known as a threat on the basepaths, and has stolen 59 bases during his major league career.
