Re: Tuesday July 3rd minor league updates
What else does Jeff Keppinger have to do to get a call to the bigs? A lot of folks bemoan dumping Harris for Keppinger but look at Jeff's stats this year: .373/.426/.475 with 21 BBs and only 13 Ks. Granted, he's never going to be a starter on this team, but I wouldn't mind seeing Jeff Keppinger given the chance to be the backup infielder the next few years. He's not going to give you any power off the bench but is a guy that can play all 3 positions and you can plug him in once every two weeks or so and not lose much. There's no reason for Castro to be on the team at this point, they need to see if Keppinger might be able to fill that role...
