Moehler to pitch in Corpus tonight

Thanks to an Express off-day, Brian Moehler will try his hand at pitching to Double-A hitters in Corpus Christi in a second rehab start against Midland.

Says Coop:
"The first rehab he had was 70 (pitches). He needs to get it in the 100 area -- or close to it."

100 pitches. That's what, two or three starts worth of pitches?


So Brandon Backe will make his second rehab start in Corpus Christi on Saturday. Keep it tuned to Astros County for details.

Oh, and any Astros County Citizens in the Corpus Christi who can get a picture of Moehler or Backe with a PoC gets a prize...
