Dukes gets walking papers

The Washington Nationals have apparently given Elijah Dukes his outright release according to MLBTR . The Nationals claim the move had nothing to do with his off field issues, Which have not been an issue since coming from the Rays.

This is a peculiar move since Dukes was the front runner to be the starting right fielder for the Nats and could have been traded or sent down to the minors. To me this doesn’t make since and makes me think that there are definitely off field issues involved. Young Dukes had a dissapointing 2009 season that was riddled with injuries, but the young player does have some talent and should land elsewhere fairly quickly.
