Backe Returns

No, not to the rotation. Not yet anyway. But in a development that is nothing short of amazing, Brandon Backe will begin throwing off the mound today, a mere six (6) months after Tommy John surgery. Wow.

Tommy John recovery typically takes twelve to eighteen months, so I'm a bit wary that Backe might be pushing too hard. Still, the idea that there's even a 1% chance he could contribute this season has to be considered a boon to the 'Stros rotation. Call me a sucker, but I'll grasp at any straws that could keep Houston fans from having to see Wandy trot out to the hill every fifth day.
