Last year Roger Bernadina showed off a super-pumped body that stretched the definition of baseball shape. He posted this to his Twitter feed a little while ago and, well, just look:

 

We’re reaching Superstar Tony Atlas territory here. Which is no insult. He was the best of that thin layer of guys who were better than jobbers but not good enough to carry a card.  Kinda describes Bernadina too.

The Twins have informed reliever Glen Perkins they will not pick up his 2018 club option worth $6.5 million, MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger reports. Instead, he will be paid $700,000 per his buyout clause.

Perkins, 34, has pitched a total of 7 2/3 innings over the last two seasons due to shoulder and biceps injuries. Bollinger adds that the two could come to terms on a minor league deal, but if they can’t reach an agreement, the lefty is likely to retire.

From 2011-15, Perkins emerged as one of the better relievers in baseball, making three All-Star teams. He compiled an aggregate 2.84 ERA with 340 strikeouts and 73 walks across 313 1/3 innings.
