I've mentioned this a couple times. I want to see how many agree with the idea. Maybe we can get someone's attention.
here's the argument...
Everyone acknowledges Keppinger dropped off last year and probably due to his knee injury. But in that drop of year consider that he hit .360 and had a
.900 OPS against left handed pitching! How can you leave that bat on the bench against lefties???
This is a perfect platoon option in left field. Dickerson seems to struggle against the southpaws but I wouldn't be surprised to see him get to .850 or
.900 against right handers. I believe Keppenger can provide adequate defense in left. No worse than Dunn, and maybe a shade better if he works at it.
This saves Hairston for the old Freel role.
Who's with me on Keppinger/Dickerson in LF
