Non-roster invitee relievers Gary Majewski and Gustavo Chacin, infielders Chris Shelton and Drew Meyer, and catcher Kevin Cash will stay with Houston through its home exhibition series against the Blues Jays and then be reassigned to minor league camp.

Shelton took starter Chris Carpenter deep in the second inning for a two-run shot with nobody out. He finished the game 1 for 4 and is batting .286 on the spring.

Berkman undergoes knee surgery


(3/13/2010) Astros 1B Lance Berkman is expected to miss two to four weeks after having knee surgery to remove loose cartilage from his left knee. Manager Brad Mills said that the surgery on Saturday showed there was no damage to the meniscus or ligaments. The timetable for Berkman's recovery puts him in jeopardy of missing Opening Day. "From my understanding, they were able to clean everything up without any cartilage damage," Mills said. "The level of concern has gone way down because of that. The doctor says he's fine. I have all the confidence in the world that he's going to be fine." Mills said that the team would not move Carlos Lee or any other outfielder to first if Berkman is out for the start of the season. Berkman's backup, Geoff Blum, went 1 for 4 with an RBI for an Astros split squad that topped the Nationals 8-7 on Saturday. Chris Shelton and Jeff Keppinger could also see time at first.
