Jeff Keppinger likely to be non-tendered

Andrew Baggarly writes that the Giants will likely let Jeff Keppinger walk, without offering him arbitration.

Keppinger played 10 games in 2010 at SS for the Astros. But before you start getting ideas, heed Baggarly's warning (not that you didn't see this with your own eyes):

He isn’t a utility infielder and his value is rather narrow. There’s a reason he hasn’t played much if any shortstop since 2008 with the Reds. He looked pretty wooden at second base, too.
