Keppinger to return to active roster Friday

Jeff Keppinger is on his way to Philadelphia tonight and will rejoin the Rays in time for Friday’s series opener against the Phillies.

The infielder, who will miss his 29th Rays game tonight because of a broken right big toe suffered May 19, finished his minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Triple A Durham.

The Rays picked up infielder Brooks Conrad off waivers from Milwaukee earlier today. Rays executive vice president of baseball Andrew Friedman said before tonight’s game with the Nationals that he doesn’t know what the immediate plans are for Conrad.

Conrad, who played primarily second and third base during his major league career, will add depth somewhere in the organization, whether it is at Durham or on the major league roster.

Friedman said the addition of Conrad should not be interpreted that Evan Longoria will miss more time than expected because of his left hamstring injury.
