Smile Kearns is on the DL again

The Nationals this afternoon placed RF Austin Kearns on the disabled list, retroactive to August 25, with a stress fracture of his left foot. Kearns is expected to miss two to four weeks.

The release the team just issued mentioned that the injury originally occurred on August 3, a game in which Kearns went 3-for-4 against Cincinnati. (I am trying to think of any red flags from that game, but I am coming up short. He played the entire game, and didn't miss any time in the games following.)

Anyway, Kearns was examined yesterday in DC by orthopedist Edward Magur, who recommended rest and immobilization with a walking cast.

And with that, Kearns is heading to the DL for the second time this year. He already missed 38 games earlier this season after right elbow surgery.

For what it's worth -- and by no means am I trying to draw a correlation between performance and injury; just speculating -- Kearns has batted .172 (11-for-64) since August 4, a day after the foot injury purportedly occurred. For the season, his numbers stand at .217 with seven HRs and 32 RBIs.

No corresponding roster move has yet been announced, but Elijah Dukes, currently on rehab with Class AAA Columbus, would be the logical man to return.
