Bernadina elects free agency

LOS ANGELES -- Outfielder Roger Bernadina elected free agency on Tuesday.

Bernadina, 30, had cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A, but he had enough Minor League time to leave the organization.

Bernadina was called up from Triple-A in September after the Dodgers nearly ran out of players in an extra-inning game and played in nine games. Earlier in the season, he played in 44 games with Cincinnati.
