MILWAUKEE (BaseballStL) – Slowly but surely Lance Berkman is getting into the swing of things after recently being activated from the disabled list on July 14.

Berkman, who has appeared in all three games since being activated, has only started in one game and was not in the starting lineup for Tuesday’s contest against the Brewers.

It made sense to sit the 36-year-old first baseman with a day game scheduled for Wednesday and terrible numbers against Tuesday’s starter Randy Wolf; Berkman is 3-for-32 (.094) with one RBI in his career against Wolf.

Berkman is 0-for-5 with a walk and two strikeouts since returning from surgery on his right knee.
