St. Louis outfielder Lance Berkman

Cincinnati Ohio. St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Lance Berkman who has been on the disabled list since May 19 has been taken off the disabled list and placed back on the Cardinals roster on Saturday before Saturday's game versus the Cincinnati Reds in Cincinnati.

Berkman suffered a torn cartlidge in his right knee while fielding a throw in Los Angeles on May 19. Berkman had surgery on his knee and returned sooner than his scheduled date in August.

Berkman will not be rushed into the starting lineup by the Cardinals. Allen Craig will be the first baseman in Saturday's game.

The Cardinals optioned outfielder Shane Robinson to their AAA minor league team in Memphis to open up a roster spot for Berkman.
