Roger Bernadina lost out to Matt Stairs and Laynce Nix for a backup outfield spot.
VIERA, Fla. — The Nationals have trimmed their spring training roster down to 26, with only one decision left to make: Whether Alex Cora or Alberto Gonzalez makes the club as a backup infielder.
Today’s moves: Roger Bernadina, Ross Detwiler, Collin Balester and Brian Bixler sent down; Chien-Ming Wang and Elvin Ramirez to the 60-day DL; Elvin Ramirez to the 15-day DL.
That means Matt Stairs, Laynce Nix and Brian Broderick have made the club.
