AP source: Keppinger, Chisox reach $12M, 3-yr deal

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A person familiar with the contract tells The Associated Press that versatile infielder Jeff Keppinger has reached agreement with the Chicago White Sox on a $12 million, three-year contract.

 

     The person spoke on condition of anonymity yesterday because there was no announcement by the team.

 

     Keppinger hit .325 with a career-high nine home runs and 40 RBIs for Tampa Bay last season. The well-traveled 32-year-old is known for making contact and has more walks than strikeouts during his eight-year career with the Rays, San Francisco, Houston, Cincinnati, Kansas City and the Mets.

 

     Keppinger is expected to play third base for the White Sox. Kevin Youkilis finished the season at that spot for Chicago last season, then became a free agent. The New York Yankees and Arizona also had been interested in Keppinger.
