Josh James earns the save Monday

Josh James walked two and struck out three over one inning to record his first save in Monday's 3-2 win over the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

James got the chance after Robert Osuna couldn't hold Houston's one-run lead in the ninth. It was James first appearance since being activated off the injured list. He had mixed results throwing 13 of 23 pitches for strikes, but was able to close out the Brewers for his first save of the season. James owns a 4.64 ERA, 1.32 WHIP with 83 strikeouts in 52 1/3 innings this year.

Josh James throws shutout inning on Friday

Josh James allowed no runs on one hit, one walk, and one strikeout through one inning against Tampa Bay on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

James saw his season debut in the game, he's got some solid potential for keeper leagues but isn't likely to have any value in re-draft leagues for a while.

Josh James (quad) to make Grapefruit League debut on Saturday

Josh James (quad) will make his spring training debut this Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

James will reportedly pitch an inning or two out of relief. He began spring training in competition for the fifth starter job, but his strained quad took him out of the running. He's still projected to make the team as a reliever, however, and it's possible (if not likely) he gets some starts in 2019.
