Yankees have strong interest in Keppinger

The Yankees have a “very strong” interest in infielder Jeff Keppinger, and are “accelerating” their timetable on the free agent in the wake of the news of Alex Rodriguez‘s hip injury, tweets Yahoo’s Jeff Passan. Keppinger, who spent the 2012 season with the Rays, is a utility infielder who can ostensibly play all over the infield and mashes left handed pitching, but he’s not a particularly strong regular. The Yankees have reportedly been interested in him all offseason, as they were originally seeking a super-sub type of infielder who could spell A-Rod and Derek Jeter semi-regularly, but now they obviously need an interim starter at third base, and Keppinger fits that bill as well as any other options on the free agent market.

    Just do it. I've been on the Keppinger bandwagon for at least 6 months now. Time to make it happen.

    So I suppose after all Nunez only serves as a trading chip
