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.

Josh James (quad) throws a bullpen on Thursday

Josh James threw his first bullpen on Thursday since straining his quad on February 24th.

Fantasy Impact

The Astros still believe James has time to get ready for the Opening Day bullpen. It's a bummer he won't start the year in the rotation but he should still see starts at times this year. He'll be a great streaming option whenever he gets the chance to start.

Josh James (quad) won't throw off mound for a while

Josh James is dealing with a strained right quad and won't throw off the mound for a while.

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.
