Earlier reports had indicated that Berkman was dealing with a hand injury that would keep him from playing Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Reds. But according to Berkman himself, the injury is not troubling him:

"It's fine," Berkman said of his hand. "I'm in (the lineup)"

The Cardinals begin their first game of the series at 7:05 p.m. CDT.
