He is a guy who looks like a decent option now, someone to take a shot on off of free agency. I don't think you are going to get a legitimate "explanation" for why Kearns isn't hitting from anyone - there have been potentially hundreds of those over the past three years that, after the fact, get lumped into larger categories like "injury" or "wasn't seeing consistent playing time." He's a guy with upside but probably not one you should be playing until he shows some consistency...unless you are in a very deep league or have a horrible, horrible team.
That is a very silly thing to say. Of course he hasn't been good for 3 years since he's been injured all that time. Duh.
Kearns has been killed by injuries. Not too many people know this but he was a higher regarded prospect than Dunn was (although it was close).
I think that maybe he's playing scared? Maybe he just hasn't gotten into a groove due to the mounting injuries over the years? Struggling and then losing your job also doesn't help your confidence.
A change of scenary may do him good. I still think he has enough talent to turn it around this season. If you have room, stash him on the bench and see what happens.
