Astros' Josh James: Mops up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James (back) struck out one in a perfect ninth inning in relief Saturday in the Astros' 14-2 win over the Angels.

James had dealt with some minor discomfort in his previous outing Tuesday in Minnesota, but he progressed enough to make the trip with the Astros to Mexico for the two-game weekend series in Monterrey. The Astros were able to ease James back into their bullpen with a low-leverage appearance in a blowout. With no apparent complications during that outing, James could gradually work his way up the bullpen pecking order.

Astros' Josh James: Likely unavailable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager A.J. Hinch said he would try not to use James (back) against the Twins on Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

James experienced some back discomfort during his scoreless appearance Tuesday, though he was able to play catch with no issues Wednesday and appears to be fine. Still, it sounds like the Astros would like to avoid using the right-hander, if possible.

Astros' Josh James: Rebounds after shaky stretch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James struck out three, walked one and hit a batter over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 9-1 win over the Athletics.

James has made headlines for all the wrong reasons, so this low-leverage outing represents a rebound for the 25-year-old. He entered Tuesday having allowed three home runs, seven runs, five hits and five walks over his previous four outings. The right-hander is being challenged to harness his fastball and will continue that process in similar low-risk situations. James has whiffed 14 batters over 10 innings (12.6 K/9).

Astros' Josh James: Fans four in mop-up duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James allowed one run on two hits and struck out four over two innings in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Rangers.

James cleaned up the final innings of another listless performance by Houston's offense, which wasted another fine effort by a starter. The young right-hander has made three appearances out of the Astros' pen, striking out nine in five innings. Houston's doldrums are not expected to last, so the need for James' length, which has produced a significant strikeout rate, should not be as acute.

Astros' Josh James: Wins bullpen job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James earned a spot in the Astros' bullpen for Opening Day, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

James lost out on his chance to make the starting rotation due to a right quad strain, and didn't make his spring debut until March 16. The 26-year-old allowed three hits and three walks while recording one strikeout over 3.1 spring innings. James figures to slot into a middle relief role for the Astros.
