The Phillies will spend the remainder of the season evaluating a number of players to see if they could be a fit for the 2014 season.

Could outfielder Roger Bernadina be one them?

Bernadina was released by the Washington Nationals on Monday. According to a baseball source, the Phils do have some interest in signing the 29-year-old outfielder.

Bernadina has spent parts of six seasons with the Nats, hitting .243 with a .310 on-base percentage in 468 games. He can play all three outfield positions, which is attractive to the Phillies who are always on the lookout for center field depth.

Bernadina was released when the Nats acquired David DeJesus from the Cubs on Monday. Bernadina was hitting just .178 in 85 games this season.
