HOUSTON -- Lance Berkman greeted his teammates before Tuesday's series opener at Minute Maid Park. Berkman has been rehabbing in Houston following knee surgery on May 25 to repair a partial tear in the medial meniscus of his right knee.
Berkman went from player to player with back-slaps and handshakes, welcoming in his teammates to the Cardinals' clubhouse.
Walking normally, with no signs of ill-effects from his arthroscopic surgery, Berkman is expected to remain sidelined for 8-10 weeks.
"Walking up stairs and some other things," Berkman said of his continuing rehab. "Just working to get back."
