Backe throws off mound, apparently in general direction of the catcher

Update on Brandon Backe within the Astros Notes section:

Backe threw 50 pitches off the mound yesterday, 25-30 were fastballs, and felt some soreness...

“I threw more pitches at a higher intensity this time. I’m just trying to be focused towards throwing the ball towards the catcher and not having any pain instead of worrying about location, but for the most part the location was there.”
