Brian Cashman, you've done it again!
No it's not Adam Dunn. It's Lance Berkman.
I think this move is fantastic. Lance Berkman is having a down year, but is still a powerful hitter in the lineup.
It will be fun to see him make the adjustment and hit home runs to the short porch in right field.
Lance Berkman, former Houston Astro, stands at .245 with 13 HR and 49 RBI.
It is projected that he bats fifth or sixth, before or after MVP candidate Robinson Cano.
Unless he immediately starts creaming the ball, it is unlikely he will bat second.
Lance Berkman is also a solid fielder. He only has one error on the season and a .999 fielding percentage. On days where Mark Teixeira needs a day off, he can fill in as the first baseman.
He loved playing with Andy Pettitte back with the Astros and he gets another chance.
Let's hope he can prove himself and help capture another ring for the New York Yankees.
