Rangers | Lance Berkman returns

Texas Rangers 1B Lance Berkman (back, knee) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 25, after missing the last four games with lower back and right knee problems. He received a cortisone shot last week. "There really isn't anything there," Berkman said. "I don't have a significant injury. Let's go forward from here and see how it goes." Berkman is likely to sit out Thursday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Berkman's injury concerns will limit his mixed-league value. Also, Jurickson Profar could continue to take some starts away from Berkman if he's used as the designated hitter. Berkman is definitely on the decline in terms of deep mixed league ownership.
