Astros are four men short of a 40-man roster

Alyson Footer is reporting that the Astros have optioned Brad James to Round Rock, and off the 40-man roster. This means there are now 36-men on the 40-man roster.

She also notes that the Astros have hired Bob Rossi as a professional scout. Rossi has been a scout with at least the Mets, Cubs, and Pirates. Maybe more.
