    Keppinger Out 4-6 Weeks

    BRADNETON, Fla. -- Georgia Bulldog Jeff Keppinger is out 4-6 weeks with a broken right ring finger when he was hit in the 5th inning by Allan Simpson. Keppinger was batting .750 in the spring so far this season. Keppinger walked and was hit by a pitch (both in the fifth inning) on Sunday. He also scored a run in his first at-bat of the inning. He's played second and third so far this spring.

    Looking more and more likely that Hamilton will find his way onto the 25-man.

    Agree with captainmorgan, but a comment for redeye: Do you really think they were playing for the same spot? I think Hamilton was well ahead of Kepp anyway on account of his own performance, plus the amount of PR that the team has put into his life's story (a pretty good one at that). His story has been recounted by almost every major paper in the country. If he keeps hitting the way he is now, no question he makes the team. (But that's all another topic. Back to my main point: I don't think Kepp's injury has anything to do with JHam making the team. JHam's already ahead of him and isn't playing for the same roster spot in my humble opinion.)
    Here's to another record-breaking season from Adam Dunn ...another 40 homeruns (all coming with nothing on the line) and 200 Ks! We Want King Jay!!

    Keppinger really was a good pick up. Even as a bench bat. He's a decent contact hitter and plays good defense.


    I indifferent about his injury. If it was Janish I'd be more concerned.

    I guess you are probably right... they aren't playing for the same spot. Kepp was probably a long shot either way (and now he's a 'no shot'). I think I just wanted to post something about J-Ham since he's hitting .500 and I am so psyched about the possibility of having something to be psyched about on this team. If he can keep hitting like this, he could even work his way into the starting line-up IMO with Freel best as a 4 to 5-day per week guy.

    There was never really much doubt on that one. I'd say this makes it more likely that Denorfia is on the 25 man. Hamilton is already there.
