ESPN: Berkman Agrees To Deal With Rangers

Eliot J. Schechter/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Lance Berkman has agreed to a one-year $10 million contract with the Texas Rangers, according to sources of ESPN.

The contract is also said to have a vesting option for a second year if the 37-year-old Berkman reaches 550 plate appearances next season.

The switch-hitting Berkman is expected to be used as the teams primary designated hitter.

Berkman is coming off a year where he had two surgeries on his right knee, allowing him to only play in 32 games with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Throughout his 14-year career, Berkman has hit .296, with 360 home runs, and 1,200 RBIs.
