Berkman hits homer in first Minors rehab game
HOUSTON -- Rangers designated hitter Lance Berkman went 2-for-3 with a home run for Triple-A Round Rock against Salt Lake on Saturday in his first game on rehabilitation assignment.
Berkman is expected to play at least two more games, and if all goes well, he could be activated on the next homestand that starts Tuesday.
Berkman, a switch-hitter, struck out in his first at-bat against Salt Lake starter Jarrett Grube. But he hit a home run to left-center in his next at-bat.
