Lance Berkman Injury: Cardinals First Baseman Has Minor Tear In Calf

The news out of St. Louis on Thursday was not good for first baseman Lance Berkman. According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the St. Louis Cardinals slugger will miss at least the remainder of the weekend's games:

Berkman hit an impressive 31 homers to go with a .301/.412/.547 slash in 2011. Through 23 PA in the 2012 season, Berkman has hit two doubles and a triple in a hot start to the year. The 36-year-old Berkman signed a 2-year deal with the Cardinals in 2011.
