04:41 PM - News: Mets Trade Keppinger to KC for Gotay

 

...posted by Matthew Cerrone...

 

The Mets have traded Tides 2B Jeff Keppinger to Kansas City for Triple-A 2B Ruben Gotay…

 

Gotay will report directly to Norfolk…

 

…strange deal, to say the least…

 

In 337 at-bats in Triple-A this season, Gotay, 23, hit .264 with 45 runs scored, nine home runs, 43 RBI, seven stolen bases and 67 strikeouts spanning 87 games…

 

In 130 major league games, the switch-hitting Gotay has hit .242 with six HR, 45 RBI and 87 strikeouts…

 

…good luck, jeff…hope you shake the utility-man tag…my guess is that we’ll one day be speaking of you like we speak of Craig Counsell…time will tell, i suppose…

Our old pal Jeff Keppinger just put KC ahead of Red Sox in 12th inning with 3-run dinger, while Gotay sits at home eating cheetos.

 

Kepp could have been the extra bat we're looking for in the post season.

 

Keppinger makes Tim Teufel look like Joe Morgan with the glove. Not a huge loss.
