It would probably have to come at the expense of Castro, which could cause a problem becuase Keppinger doesn't play shortstop. Plus, it looks like Hopper has adapted well to the PH role.

He has always hit for a good average in the minors. I have been interetsed in him being on the big club since before his spring injury.
