Berkman is leaning towards retirement, Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
The Pirates reportedly had some interest in Berkman, but the Big Puma is nearing the end of the line. After a bounce-back 2011 campaign, he struggled with injuries throughout the last two seasons. That said, Berkman is still a decent hitter when he's healthy, as evidenced by his .242/.340/.359 slash line over 294 plate appearances with the Rangers in 2013.
