07:11 AM ET 06.18 | A June swoon has set in for Rangers DH Lance Berkman, who is batting .182 since June 1. [On Monday, Berkman endured] his second consecutive game off, but don???t expect him to fight manager Ron Washington for playing time. "[Washington] has had a lot going on lately with the lineup," Berkman said Monday. "I haven't played well. It's no big deal. I don't mind it." Though Berkman's 2012 season was cut short by injuries, he said that physical issues are not the reason for his slump or lack of production. But that doesn't mean the six surgeries he's undergone on his knees, including four on the right knee, haven't had an impact. Berkman said he's noticed from watching video that he's not straightening out his right leg at the plate.

I think Berkman is starting to realize his career is quickly winding down. The knees are saying stop. Retire and let some young prospect get a chance. Berkman has had a very good career. No sense hanging on when you are currently hitting less than .200.
