Berkman can flat hit. He toned his body before the season and it has paid huge dividends. He has hit balls harder and farther and improved his agility in the field and on the bases. He should avoid extended slumps because he's got near perfect balance and hitting mechanics from both sides of the plate. He also recognizes pitches extremely well. By winning the Cape Cod League batting title last summer, he has demonstrated an ability to hit with wood, though he hit only one home run.
