Roger Bernadina is interested in a return to MLB, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.

Bernadina spent the 2017 season with the Kia Tigers of the Korea Baseball Organization, where he hit .320 with 27 homers, 111 RBI and 32 stolen bases. We've seen this script before -- Eric Thames came back to MLB this past season after spending time in the KBO. Bernadina is 33 years old and his numbers, which terrific, are less eye-popping than those boasted by Thames upon his return, so it'll be interesting to see how he's received by major league clubs.
