Lance Berkman is going to have an MRI on that shoulder

Lance Berkman, who has been sidelined with a strain to his rotator cuff,  is going to have an MRI today.

Berkman injured the shoulder on a swing Sunday and had to leave the game last night due to more trouble with it. The Cardinals and Berkman still think it’s nothing serious and are looking at anti-inflammatory injections and rest, but clearly having his bat out of the lineup will be a problem if it’s for more than a couple of days.

The odds-on-favorite for Comeback Player of the Year is currently hitting .286/.398/.595 with 27 homers.
