    Keppinger fractures knee

    "A big, big, hit," as Marty just said.

    From Fay's blog...

    Keppinger appeared to hurt himself in the second inning when he fouled a ball off the inside of his leg. Corey Patterson pinch hit for him in the fourth. In the fifth, Jerry Hairston Jr. moved to short stop, Ryan Freel moved to right field, and Patterson moved to center field.

    UPDATE: An X-ray revealed that Keppinger fractured the patella in his left knee. He will have an MRI tomorrow.


    I realize we don't know the severity of the break, but does anyone out there know the likely recovery time for such an injury?

    Who comes up from AAA?

    I'd say the most likely candidates are Janish, Jolbert Cabrera, or maybe Andy Green.

    With Hairston probably getting a lot of SS time could they be tempted to bring up an OF'er?

    Edit: Also Rosales

    I don't think Cabrera and Green are options. It's either Janish or Rosales. I'm going to go with Janish because he is a better fielder and Rosales is off to a slow start.

    I would hope they bring Janish up and let him play every day. If he can hit .250 his defense makes it worth it.

    Janish -- put the defender there, hit him 8th and hope the other guys pick up the slack

    I hate to see anybody get hurt-especially a player who has paid his dues and is getting a chance to play everyday.

    I say bring up Janish because I would like to see what he can do, but I would like to see what Hairston can do with regular playing time first.

    I wonder if it's serious enough that he'll go right to the 60 Day DL (thus freeing up a roster spot).

    Do you know when that occurred relative to the Kepp news? If it was after I'd say he can pack his bags.

    It appears after the Kepp news. He was pulled in the bottom of the 8th for a pinch hitter. The game just went to the top of the 9th.
