Lance Berkman Injury: Cardinals 1B Placed On 15-Day DL With Calf Injury

On Thursday afternoon, St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak announced that first baseman Lance Berkman has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a calf injury. Berkman initially suffered the injury last week, then aggravated it on Wednesday.

Berkman, in giving futile chase to a pop foul Wednesday night, aggravated a calf strain he had suffered last week in Cincinnati. He was out four games with that injury before returning to play 1 1/2 games.


Berkman is hitting .348/.500/.522 this season.

Skip Schumaker, who has been rehabbing in triple-A, is expected to be activated by the Cardinals.
