Rolen out of Reds lineup with sore foot

Rolen out of Reds lineup with sore foot

LOS ANGELES -- The slow walk Scott Rolen took toward the Reds clubhouse hours before Monday's game told part of the story. Later, the wrap around his left foot told the rest.

Rolen did not start at third base for the Reds vs. the Dodgers. He was still smarting quite a bit after he fouled a ball off his foot during Sunday night's game vs. the Giants.

"I'm not dead and it's not broken," said Rolen, who is day to day. "But it happened in the second inning yesterday and I had to stand out on it for three hours. I'll be pretty hobbling on it."

Rolen had played the last four games at San Francisco after he missed the four before that with a throat illness. He was 3-for-14 in the series, including a RBI double Sunday, and is batting .240 with two home runs and 22 RBIs this season.

Miguel Cairo started in Rolen's place Monday.
