Jeff Keppinger's light throwing session on Tuesday went "OK."

It wasn't the strongest endorsement for his ailing shoulder. The 33-year-old has been able to hit in camp, but is still having difficulty throwing the ball coming off arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Conor Gilaspie is likely to begin the season as the club's starting third baseman.

Jeff Keppinger (shoulder) will likely start the season on the disabled list if he doesn't recover quickly.

Keppinger had arthroscopic shoulder surgery over the offseason, and he's still working on being able to throw. The 33-year-old has been able to hit, so he's not completely behind his teammates, but the inability to throw hurts his chances of breaking camp with the club, according to White Sox manager Robin Ventura. Even if Keppinger doesn't head north with the team, he'll likely return to the 25-man roster sometime in April.

Keppinger still isn't able to throw full-out as he works his way back from arthroscopic shoulder surgery, but White Sox manager Robin Ventura wants to get him some at-bats. "I was trying to get him going, if he's not going to be able to throw right away," Ventura said. "Gotta slowly get him in there and get some at-bats. I know Thursday he's probably scheduled to DH one of those [split-squad] games."
