Lance Berkman is back in the Cardinals lineup for tonight’s game against the Reds.
Berkman was not in the Cardinals’ lineup originally posted this afternoon; a club official said the veteran switch-hitter was having a sore hand evaluated by the team.
But when questioned about the situation, the first baseman said he will be in tonight’s lineup. “It’s fine,” Berkman said of his hand. “I’m in (the lineup).”
