Berkman injured his right knee fielding a throw to first base in the second inning of the Cards' loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday. He left the game with what was termed a sprained right knee, but he was later diagnosed with a torn ACL instead. An MRI will confirm the injury today.

Berkman, the National League's comeback player of the year last season, has played in only 13 games for the Cards this season, hitting .333 with one home run and four RBIs. He missed 21 games earlier this season with a strained left calf.

At age 36, the switch-hitting slugger may be nearing the end of the road. Berkman has played 14 major league seasons with the Houston Astros, New York Yankees and now the Cardinals; he's hit .296 for his career with 359 home runs and 1,197 RBIs.
