Mike Carp to go on DL with fractured right foot, Daniel Nava coming back

June 01, 2014 - 2:39 pm

After the Red Sox beat the Rays, 4-0, Red Sox manager John Farrell revealed to reporters that first baseman/outfielder Mike Carp will "be out for a period of time" after suffering a fractured right foot. The injury was incurred on Monday in Atlanta, when he fouled a pitch off his foot. Though initial X-rays had been negative, a CT-scan prior to Sunday's game revealed the fracture that will result in a stint on the DL. Carp, in his second year with the Sox, is hitting .214 with a .317 OBP and .286 slugging mark in 33 games. Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reported (via twitter) that with Carp down, the Sox will re-call Daniel Nava from Triple-A, a decision that comes just one day after he was optioned back down to Pawtucket to clear a spot for Rubby De La Rosa. While a player must ordinarily spend 10 days in the minors after being optioned before he can be recalled, because Carp will be landing on the DL, that requirement is waived.
