Astros Notes today, typically, dealing with the injured Astros.
“I'm just progressing. I just follow the program. It takes time. ... I'm not putting a date on it. I just take it day by day. In the last three days I've made good progress, but I'm not going to get too far ahead of myself. I can hit without any problem. Running is not happening right now. I try to stay in as good a shape as I can.”
Maysonet is expected to rejoin the club today after spending time with his pregnant wife since Saturday.
Erstad and Boone took BP in Chicago before last night's game
Berkman is not in Chicago, as he is attending his grandfather's funeral, and will rejoin the team in St. Louis.
“Everybody's doing fine, coming along fine. Erstad hit today. Booney hit today. They're all progressing just fine. We should have some of those guys back here pretty soon. Lance will be in St. Louis and he'll get a chance to hit some early. Hopefully he'll continue to progress.”
