Cardinals, Berkman agree to deal

The St. Louis Cardinals have reached an agreement with Lance Berkman. The one-year deal will pay the outfielder $8 million.

The Cardinals plan to have him play left field and move Matt Holliday to right.

The 34-year-old first baseman-outfielder is a five-time NL All-Star with the Astros and last year batted .248 with Houston and the New York Yankees, finishing with 14 homers and 58 RBIs.

Berkman was traded to the Yankees on July 31 and helped them win the AL wild card.
