Texas Rangers place Berkman, Tepesch on disabled list

Deisignated hitter Lance Berkman (hip) and starting pitcher Nick Tepesch (elbow) are placed on the 15-day DL, and relieft pitchers Joakim Soria and Cory Burns are added.

Designated hitter Lance Berkman is headed to the disabled list with an injured left hip, a team spokesman said Sunday morning.

The move follows roster modifications Sunday that involved putting pitcher Nick Tepesch on the DL with right elbow inflammation and activating reliever Joakim Soria and recalling pitcher Cory Burns from Round Rock.

Berkman said he injured the hip trying to break up a double play during Saturday's loss to the Astros.
