RP - HOU - IL10
Houston Astros RHP Josh James has been placed on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to March 29th. He had a setback while recovering from offseason hip surgery.
The plan was always for James to return at some point in mid-May or early June so the IL stash isn't a surprise. He underwent surgery to repair a labral tear in his left hip in back in October. He should make his way back back to 'Stros bullpen in a month and a half or so.
Astros' RP Josh James is on track to return from hip surgery in late May or early June, according to pitching coach Brent Strom.
After undergoing surgery to repair a labral tear in his left hip in October, James endured a "physical setback" in his recovery just a few weeks ago. However, James said that he's feeling good and will likely return to the Astros' bullpen in a few month's time.
Astros RHP Josh James had a "physical setback" in his rehab from left hip surgery.
The right-hander should be considered unlikely for the Opening Day roster. He's expected to pitch out of the bullpen whenever he's ready.
Astros RHP Josh James (hip) is recovering “extremely well” from left hip surgery and could come back as a reliever later in the season.
James underwent hip surgery in October and was expected to miss six-to-eight months. He’s recovering well from his surgery and could return late in the year. James struggled in 2020, owning a 7.27 ERA, 1.86 WHIP and a 21:17 K:BB across 17 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old will continue to rehab in hopes of returning sometime during the 2021 season. James is mainly a deep-league dynasty stash for now.
Astros manager Dusty Baker says Josh James (hip) isn't a candidate for the 60-day injured list.
Baker notes the team anticipates James being back prior to that. He was given a 6-8 month timetable to return from October's hip surgery.
