The Chicago White Sox have signed infielder Jeff Keppinger to a three-year deal worth $12mm, ESPNChicago.com's Bruce Levine reports.
Keppinger is a .288 career hitter over his eight-year major league career. Last season for the Rays he hit .325/.367/.439 9 home runs and 40 RBIs.
Last month, word surfaced that Keppinger broke his right fibula, but that didn't slow the interest down in Keppinger. The Yankees were also in on Keppinger, but more than likely balked at the three-year commitment.
