Keppinger for a catcher? Sure.
Uh, they have a Top 100 prospect catcher who is easily more valuable than Beckham, not to mention a guy who had a very good year in AA and AAA and another guy whose proven to be a decent player at the MLB level when he's given the opportunity. In all likelihood, they have at least 3 catchers more valuable than Beckham.

Beckham is not a prospect any more. He's entering his late 20s and hasn't had a decent season since 2009. People need to accept what he is, a decent field, ****ty hitting, middle infielder who makes $4 million.
