Astros owner Drayton McLane was never willing to trade away stars and concede a season.

Now he may be willing to move two in two days.

After trading Roy Oswalt to the Phillies, the Astros have been talking to teams about first baseman Lance Berkman, CBSSports.com has learned. It's not clear yet which teams would be interested in Berkman, who is 34 years old, has complete no-trade protection, and is having a subpar season (.245, 13 home runs, 49 RBIs).

The Yankees, who have been looking for a hitter with Nick Johnson on the disabled list, could be one possibility.

Because of Berkman's contract, which pays him $14.5 million this year with a $2 million buyout of a 2011 option, it's almost certain that he would pass through waivers unclaimed and would thus be tradeable in August.
