Former Astro and veteran MLB player Lance Berkman hasn't decided if he'll return for 2013 but if he does, we might have found his landing spot.

According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Berkman is talking to multiple clubs, including the Texas Rangers.

The Astros have openly talked about the possibility of bringing Berkman back but signed free agent Carlos Pena. Rosenthal says they're still interested.

The 36-year-old would probably be best suited as a designated hitter after having two surgeries on his right knee last year.

The Rangers would give Berkman a much better chance to play for a contender this season and they could use another bat. They lost Josh Hamilton to free agency and traded Michael Young.
