Lance Berkman: Slated to Bat Third for Rangers

Update: Rangers manager Ron Washington said he expects Berkman to bat third in the lineup this season, Anthony Andro of Fox Sports Southwest reports.

Recommendation: With Josh Hamilton signing with the Angels during the offseason, Berkman figures to slot into the three-hole, likely sandwiched between Elvis Andrus and Adrian Beltre. Even if Washington rethinks the situation and decides to move Berkman down in the order, he still stands to score plenty of runs in what is shaping up to be a deep Rangers lineup.
