Heard on 700 AM, WLW, that Kearns was sent down to AAA Louisville today, and OF K. Kelly was recalled. ESPN confirms this, and reports that C Dane Sardinha was also recalled and Jason LaRue was placed on the bereavement list.
My take is that they are sending Kearns down to get some regular ABs to get his stroke ironed out. He’s not going to get them in the majors with Wily Mo Pena playing so well. Kelly will be the spare part OF in the mean time.
I’m wondering if there could be a deal brewing soon, either Kearns of someone else, whom he would back fill for.
