WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Nationals placed outfielder
Austin Kearns on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday due to a stress
fracture in his left foot.
Kearns is expected to miss two to four weeks with the injury,
which the team believes was sustained on August 3 when Kearns
fouled a ball into his foot. It is the second time Kearns has been
on the DL this year - he missed 38 games after having surgery to
remove loose bodies from his right elbow.
Kearns was batting .217 with seven home runs and 32 RBIs.
