Injury reports fill Astros Notes column

Things worth mentioning:

Sean Berry will have surgery today, probably to remove his kidney after a potentially cancerous tumor was found.

Quintero will begin a four-day rehab assignment in Round Rock. Barring any setbacks, Q is eligible to come off the DL on Tuesday. And then it's bye-bye, Towles.

An MRI showed a tear in Brocail's left hamstring, meaning he's out at least a month. If he needs surgery, then it's bye-bye, Brocail. Ed Wade:

“It is something that you can rehab probably in excess of a month. If you were to require surgery to reattach the tendon, it would probably be the season. Obviously, Doug is opting to go the more conservative route and try to rehab it.”

And Roy is scheduled to start Sunday vs. San Diego, on schedule.
