Josh James (hip, hamstring) resumed his minor league rehab assignment for Triple-A Sugar Land on Sunday.
James was recently pulled from his rehab assignment due to hamstring tightness, but it's good to hear it was a minor injury. He's trending towards a mid-August return.
Astros reliever Josh James's rehab assignment came to a halt this past week as the 28-year-old experienced further hamstring tightness. He was sent back to Houston to undergo evaluation with the team doctors.
James missed the end of the 2020 season after undergoing hip surgery and hasn't pitched since then. Through 68 career outings, he is 8-1 with a 4.60 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and .204 OBA while walking 17 batters and striking out 21.
Astros pitcher Josh James (hamstring) suffered a setback in his recovery process.
James suffered a setback on his injured hamstring during his conditioning. He was recently transferred to the 60-day injured list and resumed throwing. It's unclear how much time the setback will cost James, but fantasy managers who have held onto him this long can move on from the 28-year-old.
Josh James began throwing for the first time since he suffered a setback from a hip injury suffered back in October. He is apparently "feeling good" and should start a rehab assignment in the coming weeks.
James last pitched in 2020, where he had a forgetful 7.27 ERA with 21 strikeouts over 17.1 innings. The hard throwing right hander will likely look to make his 2021 debut sometime in early June.
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.
