Berkman to return to action Friday

Astros first baseman Lance Berkman is scheduled to get two at-bats in Friday’s Grapefruit League game against the Detroit Tigers in Lakeland, Fla. Berkman sat out Thursday’s game because of a bruised left knee and is making good progress.

Berkman said Thursday morning he was scheduled to get an injection into the knee of either shark cartilage or rooster comb to help subside the swelling. The Astros will be without Carlos Lee until Saturday. Lee is in Houston showing cattle at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
