James Throws 82 Pitches In Scrimmage

Josh James threw 82 pitches in four-plus innings in an intrasquad game at Minute Maid Park. It was his final tuneup before a Monday start against the Mariners in Houston

James was scratched from starting Tuesday against the Royals in KC because of weather concerns. The Astros will open the 60-game season tomorrow night with Justin Verlander on the mound against Seattle.
