Rangers let Berkman go.

The Rangers made another off-season move yesterday afternoon. They declined to pick up Lance Berkman's option for 2014 and opted to buy out his remaining year.

Berkman, shown here on card 480 of the 2013 Topps Blue Border set, was supposed to provide the team with a power bat in the short term at designated hitter. After a hot start he battled injuries and lengthy Disabled List stays that made him largely ineffective.

Look for Lance to retire for good following this news. He announced his retirement before Texas signed him and talked about it again while injured. This will probably result in him pulling the plug for good.
