Cards Lance Berkman nearing return from knee surgery

Quote:
Lance Berkman will not be activated from the disabled list for the start of the second half tomorrow, but his return from knee surgery isnít far off.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Berkman will travel with the Cardinals to Cincinnati after successfully lobbying that a minor league rehab assignment will not be necessary.

While Berkmanís knee is no longer an issue, heíll have to shake the rust at the plate before being cleared to return. He took batting practice today at Busch Stadium and will go through the same routine at Great American Ballpark. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny believes itís likely heíll be activated at some point during the teamís upcoming six-game road trip.

Berkman was hitting .333 (14-for-42) with one homer and four RBI in 13 games prior to undergoing surgery on May 25 to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee. While his return likely means less at-bats for Allen Craig and Matt Carpenter, the 36-year-old isnít expected to play every day initially.
