Lance Berkman calls it a career after 15 years in the majors
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lance Berkman has decided to retire, reports MLB.com.

"It doesn’t make sense to play in the physical condition I’m in," he said. "I’m not going to keep trying to run out there for the heck of it. I think I’m actually glad about it. I’m excited about the next chapter in my life. I’m looking forward to spending more time with my family, and at some point, I’ll definitely coach somewhere."

Berkman spent 15 years in the majors, playing for the Astros, Yankees, Cardinals and Rangers. He hit .293 with a .406 on-base percentage, .537 slugging percentage and .943 OPS. He also had 366 home runs, 422 doubles, 1,146 runs and 1,234 RBI in 1,879 games. He was a six-time All-Star and won NL comeback player of the year in 2011. 

"I’ve had a great career," he said. "I did everything anyone could have set out to do. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next."

Lance Berkman leaning toward retirement
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Pirates were told Lance Berkman is leaning toward retirement when they called to inquire about the 37-year-old designated hitter, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Berkman battled injuries in 2013, his one season with the Rangers, batting .242 with six homers and a .700 OPS in 256 at-bats.

Lance Berkman officially joins free agent pool
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

The Rangers declined to exercise the 2014 option on designated hitter Lance Berkman on Thursday, according to MLB.com. Berkman, who now becomes a free agent, will receive a $1 million buyout, which takes the Rangers off the hook for a $12 million option for next season.

In 73 games, Berkman hit .242 with six home runs and 34 RBI in 2013.

Lance Berkman in the lineup again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rangers first baseman Lance Berkman, who was a late scratch Sunday when the opposing team made a last-minute pitching change, was in the lineup at DH for Monday's game at Tampa Bay. It was the 37-year-old's first start in 11 games.

Because of hip and knee issues that have sidelined him for much of the season, Berkman, a switch-hitter, is available only from the left side of the plate. He's 0 for 7 since returning from the DL Sept. 1.

Lance Berkman won't start after all
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Lance Berkman, set to make his first start in 12 days, was scratched from the Rangers' lineup Sunday. He was replaced at DH by Jeff Baker, as the Athletics replaced starting pitcher Jarrod Parker (illness) with lefty Tommy Milone.

Rangers manager Ron Washington went with Baker, who is hitting .326 with 10 home runs against left-handed pitchers, taking advantage of the matchup. Also, Berkman's hip issues have given him difficulties when swinging against lefties, according to the Dallas Morning News.
