"Berkman told me that he would like to play for the rockies during the alcs," Renck wrote.
On Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reported Berkman was the A's top target for its designated hitter spot. The Cardianls, Cubs, Pirates and Blue Jays have also apparently shown interest in the 34-year old switch-hitter.
UPDATE: Renck "clarifies" with this tweet: "Rox have made agressive push for berkman. In berkman's hands at this pt. Rox hopeful"
Renck notes Berkman would play in the outfield and spell Todd Helton at first base. Berkman came up as an outfielder, but hasn't played in the outfield since 2007.
