Fantasy Impact:

It means James won't have a chance to crack the Opening Day rotation. Astros manager A.J. Hinch did add he could still make the roster as a reliever, but James' upside as a starting pitcher is what made him such an attractive fantasy sleeper this off-season. He could still have value later in the season if he winds up in the rotation.
