Notes for the Rockies series

Series upcoming with the Rockies tonight - in which Deputy Jason will lead a live blog for Tuesday night's game!

There are some notes to report:

Berkman is "likely to play" this series. Taking some swings in the cage, Berkman reported his wrist felt fine. The march to Mendoza continues...

Quintero will be activated from the DL today, meaning J.R. Towles will be making his way to Round Rock.

Hitting coach Sean Berry was released from the hospital yesterday, and released the following statement:

“Thank you for all the messages of support. I would like to especially thank Dr. James Muntz and Dr. James Goldfarb and everyone at The Methodist Hospital for their expertise and professionalism. I also greatly appreciate the understanding and first-class actions by the Astros organization in helping myself and my family through this difficult time. I will be back soon.”
