The Yankees Get
It has been a disappointing season for Berkman, hitting .245 with 13 HR, 49 RBI and 39 R.  He has suffered from some below average luck, with a BABIP of .279, his lowest mark since seeing just 93 AB in 1999.  His strikeouts are also at a career high, though it’s not a huge regression (23.5% strikeout rate vs. a career mark of 20.2%).
