Lance Berkman out for season; Chris Carpenter on verge of activation

The Cardinals got news that they didn't want to hear Monday when a trip to his knee doctor confirmed that Lance Berkman requires additional surgery and is out for the rest of the 2012 season. But it wasn't all bad news. Injured ace starting pitcher Chris Carpenter threw 70 pitches in a simulated game that impressed manager Mike Matheny enough for him to predict that Carpenter will be activated in about 10 days -- should he make it through one more simulated game without problems.
