White Sox designate Jeff Keppinger for assignment

The White Sox designated infielder Jeff Keppinger for assignment Wednesday. Keppinger, 34, had been on injury rehabilitation with a sore shoulder at AA Birmingham.

Keppinger is in the second year of a $12 million contract he signed as a free agent but no longer fits in the Sox rebuilding plan. He batted .253 with four home runs and 40 RBI over 117 games in 2013.
