According to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Lance Berkman will be activated today after undergoing surgery on his right knee just under two months ago. While Matheny offered no comment on what he would do regarding playing Allen Craig more or less, there is no doubt that Berkman will not be ready to play a full nine innings on a daily basis, allowing Craig to continue contributing on a nightly basis for this team.

UPDATE: Shane Robinson has been optioned to AAA-Memphis to make room for Berkman.
