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.
