According to Evan Grant of Dallas Morning News, Rangers' DH Lance Berkman tweaked his hip/lower back beating out a potential double play ball, and apparently is going to be re-evaluated tomorrow. Berkman has been battling a knee problem all season. With Jeff Baker and Craig Gentry on the disabled list, the Rangers are already very limited in terms of their bench depth -- today's game featured a bench of David Murphy, Robinson Chirinos, A.J. Pierzynski, and Engel Beltre. When things like this happen, you can't help but remember 41-year-old Manny Ramirez, who the Rangers signed to a minor league contract. Ramirez is to make his debut with Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday. As for Berkman's attitude after this, he's realistic in whether his bat is going to get going again or not: “Concerned isn’t the right word,” said Berkman, who is hitting only .176 with two extra base hits since June 1. “There is no doubt that I don’t have the same bat speed I once had from the left side. From the right side I feel great – or I had been feeling great – but I just don’t have the same snap since I haven’t been able to straighten my left. I don’t know if it’s permanent or not. Either it’s going to come back as the knee gets stronger, or I’ll see you guys in the stands.” In the last 30 days, Berkman has been limited to just 57 at-bats by the recurrent knee pain and a stiff back that ultimately required a cortisone injection.
