Berkman aims August return
“I’m coming back.”
Designated hitter Lance Berkman, Thursday afternoon
Berkman met with general manager Jon Daniels before Wednesday’s game and felt it was best to stick with the team. He said he has improved over the last two days, as he was able to run at about 50 percent before Thursday’s game.
Berkman has a personal goal to begin his medical rehabilitation assignment either August 8th or 9th. If he’s able to hit his goal, Berkman thinks he could be activated for the next homestand, which starts August 13th against the Brewers. He still plans to travel with the team after tonight’s game.
