Berkman to make season debut
Berkman had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee March 13, forcing him to miss the first 12 games of the season. The 34-year-old hit a home run and two doubles and had three RBIs in a two-game rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Round Rock.
Third baseman Chris Johnson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a rib cage injury to free Berkman's spot on the roster.
