Mini Mart is gone once again and the Phillies have brought in a guy who hit .178 for the Washington Nationals this season in Roger Bernadina. He'll fit right in in Philadelphia.

I guess the good part about the move is that he adds a solid bat... no wait, something about sharks.

That's about it.

He'll be the latest addition to the roster who, when at Citizens Bank Park in the coming weeks, the person you are sitting with will ask, "wait, who the heck is that guy playing for the Phillies?"

Sharkadina will compete with Casper Wells for playing time whatever who cares the Phillies.

#Phillies have signed free agent OF Roger Bernadina. To make room on the 25-man roster, INF/OF Michael Martinez was optioned to @IronPigs.
