Berkman is in the house

Lance Berkman has arrived in Tampa in time for tonight's game against the Rays and will speak with the media at 4 p.m. As soon as we know if he's playing tonight -- and it's a safe bet he is -- and where he's hitting, we'll let you know.

Berkman will wear No. 17, the same number he wore in Houston. Austin Kearns will wear No. 26.
