Lance Berkman Placed On DL With Knee Injury

On Saturday night, St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Lance Berkman was pulled out of a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers after suffering what appeared to be a knee injury.

On Sunday, the official Cardinals Twitter feed announced that Berkman has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee injury. In response to the move, the Cardinals have purchased the contract of first baseman Matt Adams from their AAA-Memphis team. Adams had been pulled out of his game with Memphis on Saturday following the injury to Berkman.

This will be the second stint on the DL for Berkman already this season. His propensity to fall victim to injury caused a lot of scoffing when the Cardinals signed him prior to the 2011 season, but Berkman helped power the team to a World Series victory.
