Keppinger Injury Not Serious, Will Avoid DL Stint

After scheduling an MRI for Jeff Keppinger, the Astros were prepared to lose their best hitter for the rest of the season. Jeff Keppinger left Monday night’s game with a sprained left toe, however, the Astros thought Keppinger may have also suffered a fracture.

Brad Mills and the Astros got a sigh of relief as the MRI revealed no structural damage, nor any fracture:

“He seems to be much better [Wednesday],” manager Brad Mills said.

Keppinger will presumably stay off the DL. Geoff Blum, Keppinger’s replacement, hit a game-tying home run in the ninth inning of Wednesday’s game.
