The team announced Wednesday that Keppinger was returned from a minor league rehab assignment and activated from the 15-day disabled list before he was let go.
Analysis: Keppinger had been out all season recovering from shoulder surgery last September. Keppinger is in the second year of a $12 million, three-year contract and is owed $4 million this season and $4.5 million next year. But the White Sox decided to let him go anyway to give more time to younger players. The 34-year-old Keppinger batted .253 with four homers and 40 RBIs last season.
