Reds Trade Keppinger to Astros

Jeff Keppinger was all but out of options with the Cincinnati Reds, so the team moved him to Houston today for a player to be named later.  Keppinger saw time at nearly every infield position last season, and was loved by fans for his viking-esque red beard.

The 29-year old hit .266 last season and gives the Astros a versatile utility man.
