Houston Astros Inside Pitch 2009-05-12
Astros hitting coach Sean Berry, who had a cancerous kidney removed Friday morning at the Methodist Hospital of Houston, was released from the hospital Monday.

Berry's right kidney was removed by Dr. James Goldfarb, a renowned urologist.

"Thank you for all the messages of support," Berry said. "I would like to especially thank Dr. James Muntz (one of the Astros' team physicians) and Dr. James Goldfarb and everyone at The Methodist Hospital for their expertise and professionalism.

"I also greatly appreciate the understanding and first-class actions by the Astros organization in helping myself and my family through this difficult time. I will be back soon."

In Berry's absence, third-base coach Dave Clark is helping with the hitting coach's duties. Berry is expected to return to work with the Astros in two weeks.
