Daryl Van Schouwen, White Sox beat writer for the Chicago Sun-Times, tweeted the following on Keppinger's status.
Jeff Keppinger said he'll test right shoulder on Tues. Opening Day readiness seems doubtful. 'I just know it hurts really bad," he said.Although Keppinger is testing his shoulder, he told the Chicago Tribune on Wednesday that his surgically repaired shoulder feels tight and painful and a stint on the disabled list seems likely to start the season. With Keppinger sidelined, Carlos Sanchez, Leury Garcia or Marcus Semien will battle for a utility infielder role.
