The Astros announced Berry was released Monday. The 43-year-old coach had successful surgery Friday to remove his right kidney and the entire growth.

Houston manager Cecil Cooper has said Berry will probably return to the team in a couple of weeks.

Berry first began experiencing discomfort in his kidney area earlier this month while the Astros were in Atlanta. He spent 11 seasons in the major leagues, including three with the Astros. He's in his fourth year as Houston's hitting coach.
