Lance Berkman was diagnosed with a mild right calf strain.

Berkman said it's "slightly more than usual soreness," so it sounds like he'll be shut down for a few days until the discomfort dissipates. It's worth noting that the 37-year-old missed a month last season with a left calf strain. This might not be as serious, but it points to the fact that the Rangers made a pretty big gamble by signing him to a one-year, $10 million contract over the winter.
