After some speculation outfielder Roger Bernadina could find his way onto the disabled list after straining his right hamstring on Monday night against the Toronto Blue Jeys, the official word is out: He won't. According to the Washington Post, Bernadina, who was penciled to start in center field this series, will miss just two or three game following an MRI on Tuesday that revealed no tear.
"In two or three days, he'll probably be all right," manager Davey Johnson told the media. "I don't see it being a problem. He'll be back soon. He just tweaked it."
In 45 games this season, Bernadina is hitting .247 with two home runs, 12 RBIs and eight runs.
