Jeff Keppinger may not have fractured his foot like once presumed, but his sprained big left toe is serious enough for a DL stint. Alyson Footer reported the news via Twitter.
Jeff Keppinger has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. IF Anderson Hernandez called up (purchased) from Round Rock.
Keppinger was placed on the 15 day DL, and is expected to return sometime in September. Keppinger is hitting .285 in a season in which he has developed from a utility player to the Astros most consistent hitter. With Manzella returning, Angel Sanchez may get playing time at 2B.
