Astros first baseman Lance Berkman will undergo surgery to remove loose particles from his left knee and will miss two to four weeks.
It's unknown whether Berkman will be ready for Opening Day.
"We're probably looking at two to four weeks," general manager Ed Wade said. "Whether or not he's going to be ready for Opening Day really just depends on the healing process. They haven't even gone in yet, so it's too early to tell, but the normal timeframe would be two to four weeks. We'll see where it flows from there."
Well, at least they’re dealing with this now instead of sometime in June or July. Get well soon, Big Puma!
