    Shoulder surgery ended Jeff Keppinger‘s 2013 season in July and now it looks like it will also cause the White Sox infielder to begin this season on the disabled list.

  6. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 22, 2013, 5:12 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Phillies 0: It’s getting close to the time for us to break out all of that “we are all witnesses” kind of hyperbole for Matt Harvey. Not that it’s really hyperbole. He’s simply toying with hitters at this point, throwing ungodly stuff in just about every count. Seven innings, three hits, ten strikeouts,…

  7. White Sox place Paul Konerko and Jesse Crain on DL

    Jul 3, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Paul Konerko

    Paul Konerko has a sore back and Jesse Crain has a sore shoulder, and the White Sox have placed both players on the disabled list. Konerko has struggled all year, hitting just .249 with a career-worst .682 OPS at age 37, so shutting him down for a while may not be such a bad thing.…

    Jun 28, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    Not his worst start. The worst start. Trevor Bauer surrendered five runs and six hits while getting just two outs Friday in the first game of a doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Alex Rios

    It wasn’t a very good night for first-base umpires Friday. Angel Hernandez cost the White Sox a win over the Marlins in the 10th, though they did come back and prevail in the 11th anyway.

    Heading into the eighth inning of last night’s White Sox-Angels game Jeff Keppinger had yet to draw a walk in 140 plate appearances this season.

    Detroit Tigers' Verlander reacts after leaving the game against Texas Rangers in their MLB American League baseball game in Arlington

    Rangers 10, Tigers 4: So much for pitching porn. Darvish wasn’t exactly sharp early but he ultimately settled down. Meanwhile, who put the benzedrine in Mr. Verlander’s Ovaltine? He was a hot mess. And I do mean hot. He was lighting up the radar gun in the early innings but was overthrowing and seemed to…

  17. The Yankees are still interested in Scott Hairston

    Dec 28, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    In past years I would not make much of an effort to post about the Yankees’ possible interest in role players, but in a world where their failure to land guys like Jeff Keppinger and Nate Schierholtz actually upsets people, this is relevant: The Yankees starting outfield is Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson and Ichiro Suzuki ……

  20. Jeff Keppinger for $12 million is a bit of a reach

    Dec 5, 2012, 2:17 PM EDT

    Jeff Keppinger

    Obviously, it’s a good idea not to give three-year contracts to part-time players unless you have to. Unfortunately, in this winter’s free agent market, the White Sox felt they had to. Jeff Keppinger probably had multiple teams interested in him at $8 million for two years, so the first team to go to $12 million…

Sports’ Jeff Passan reports that the two sides met yesterday and that the Bombers’ interest in Keppinger is “very strong.” Keppinger is the more realistic target, given that Youkilis is…
