Berkman could return shortly after All-Star break

ST. LOUIS (BaseballStL) – The Cardinals may soon get a much-needed boost to the lineup when Lance Berkman returns.

Berkman has been out since May 19 after having surgery to fix a meniscus tear in his knee and, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Joe Strauss, the first baseman believes he will be back shortly after the All-Star break and will not need a rehab stint.

He was hitting .333 with one home run and four RBIs in 13 games this season.
