Even though they are saying nice things about Morel in public, I don't think they have much faith in him. Nor should they.
I like Keppinger as a "10th man" of sorts. He's a real nice utility player, but I'm not huge fan of giving him an everyday job.
If Gillaspie plays well this spring, maybe we're going to see a platoon at 3B. Or maybe Keppinger gets more time than we think at 2B if Beckham doesn't produce.
I can't see any platoon happening. Keppinger has .303/.378 splits. Beckham is pretty neutral. Only chance is Gillaspie plays 3B v RHP and Keppinger to 2B......But Beckham being neutral there's no real gain here.
Gillaspie, to me, just there for options, possibly trade options.
