Keppinger goes under the knife


Via Brian McTaggart, Astros infielder Jeff Keppinger will likely miss the start of the season after having surgery to clear out some inflammation in his left foot next week. The Yankees had talks with Houston about acquiring Keppinger for the bench, but those talks eventually fell apart. The injury effectively ends any chance of talks being resumed and a trade being made. For shame, he would have been a nice little fit.

    How do you have surgery to reduce inflammation?

    He should be cheaper now akshully…

      Hmmm, well, if he has surgery, his foot will no doubt be inflamed, and then the inflamation will decrease, so he can claim reduced inflamation.

      Despite what Kenny Williams might think, nobody “akshully” trades for injured players.

      Rotoworld says he’s getting a bone removed that’s near his big toe. I assume that’s similar to how guys get that small bone by their wrist removed too.
