Astros Season Hits Another Road Bump, Keppinger Could Be On Way To DL

Jeff Keppinger will soon undergo an MRI to gauge the extent of his injury in last night's game. After leaving with a sprained big left toe, GM Ed Wade and the Astros will soon find out if a fracture is present or not:

"There's a possibility he's got a small fracture. Whether it's an old fracture or new fracture, they'll be able to ascertain that once he gets the MRI done."

After arguably the best and most effective season of his career, Keppinger could end up on the DL and be done for the season. Geoff Blum will pick up the slack in the mean time, batting in the seven hole against Johan Santana tonight.
