McTaggart's Berkman/Lyon update

McTaggart has an update on the HurtStros:

On Berkman:
The injury doesn't appear to be serious. Berkman isn't limping or wearing a wrap. This is all very precautionary, and manager Brad Mills said he's leaning towards holding Puma out of the the first Spring Training game Thursday. The Astros will be extremely cautious with Berkman considering how early it is in the spring.

Lyon, who threw about 25 fastballs to Brad Arsnberg off the mound today:
"I went out there and tried to progress a little bit and get a feel for that mound and see where I'm at right now. I feel pretty good. I'm feeling a lot stronger, and for the most part I felt pretty good where the ball was doing and didn't really overdo anything."
