Analysis: He then had another injury-plagued season that limited him to 73 games. The 37-year-old Berkman was the first overall pick by Houston in 1997 out of Rice, and played 12 seasons for the Astros.

Analysis: The Rangers' DH has only four starts at first base, and the pitchers are batting in the weekend series matching 2011 World Series opponents. He wasn't in the lineup Friday night and didn't seem to mind, saying it made sense to take the rest.
