Lance Berkman

Postby LumberJack5 » Tue Mar 29, 2005 12:07 am

What is the latest on his rehab? When will he be back? All Ive heard is that he is going to miss a month. Is that max? Or min? Will he be the top OF he was before when he gets back? What should I expect?

Lance Berkman faced Roger Clemens in a simulated game today and said he felt good at the plate despite a lack of timing.
Berkman, coming back from a torn ACL, appears on target to rejoin the Houston lineup three or four weeks into the season.

i snagged berkman in the 9th round in my draft. i believe that he will be the player he once was when he returns. expect slightly less production, but i see him at 25-33 hrs 95-105 rbi. i will take that in a 16 team h2h league ;-D
Vaughn: What's that sh*t on your chest?

Harris: Crisco, Bardol, Vagisil. Any one of them will give you another two to three inches drop on your curve ball.

On Tuesday, team doctor David Lintner confirmed what Lance Berkman has known for quite a while -- that he won't be allowed to return to the field anytime before April 12, the five-month mark since his ACL surgery. "It's the same thing they told me four months ago," said Berkman, who insisted all winter he was going to try to be ready by Opening Day.

I took a chance on Berkman in a couple of leagues and if he is back April 12, I will be very happy. Worst case is sounds like he will be back late April/early May.

"The knee will let us know when that's going to happen," Berkman said. "Right now, I can say I won't be going out on a rehab assignment in the next few days. On April 12, there will be an evaluation, and we'll just see from there. I've still got a week before then. A week can make a big difference in your rehab."

Sounds like if everything goes well he will be back in about 2 weeks.
I've got him in a couple league and I'm spotting him with J. Jones. The guy is a monster in April.
