Keppinger may still be on move

Yesterday I reported along with a few other rumor sites that Keppinger may be involved in a deal with Xavier Nady to Pittsburgh for Oliver Perez and/or Roberto Hernandez. However, today I stumbled upon another source with Keppinger's name involved. The Kansas City Star is reporting that the Mets and Royals "appear close" in a possible trade off of second baseman: Ruben Gotay for Jeff Keppinger. The 24 year old Gotay hit .270 in 152 at bats in 2004, although he struggled in 2005 hitting .227 in 282 at bats. In AAA this season Gotay is hitting .264 with nine home runs and 46 rbi. The Puerto Rican born Gotay played for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic and he hit a home run to go along with his .368 average in 19 at bats. A cause for concern about Gotay is his strikeout to walk ratio is nearly 3:1 at 67:26. Nevertheless, it appears definite that Keppinger will be dealt.
