Chicago White Sox 2B Jeff Keppinger (shoulder) was able to make his Cactus League debut Tuesday, March 4, grounding out in his only at-bat in a pinch-hitting appearance. "Gotta slowly get him in there and get some at-bats. I know Thursday he's probably scheduled to DH one of those (split-squad) games," Keppinger said.
Fantasy Tip: Keppinger is not yet able to throw, so the team is bringing him along slowly. He is worth a look in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues at this point of his career, but mixed leaguers won't want to bother with him.

"There's still a few areas he's going to improve in and we need to see some refinement."
