JJO in the Chronicle reports that Lance Berkman is on the 15 day DL with that calf strain. Apparently it was not as "mild" as first reported, When I researched Type II Strain, the material said recovery time is measured in weeks (not days). So while I am a litte surprised to read this announcement, it is not a shock. Since Berkman pinch hit last night, the 15 days must start today. Any way you look at it, he'll miss the Mets, Cubs, Cardinals and Giants series.
While he will be missed for sure, losing Lance is easier to take seeing how well Coste has played in Berkman's absence and seeing how well the team has responded this week.
Edwin Maysonet is back. Hopefully he will get an opportunity to play; but unless Matsui needs off days to recover from his bumps and bruises, I don't seeing much playing time for him. Still it's nice to have him back. I wish it were under different circumstances.
