Astros Pitcher Placed On Injured List

Josh James has hit a setback in his recovery, as the Houston Astros have placed him on the 60-day injured list.

James was on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sugar Land but just hasn't been able to find his form. In 23 games, he had a 7.59 ERA, so it's fair to say that he has struggled mightily. Now, this lat strain will keep him out until at least late August.

In 73 career games with the Astros, James has an 8-1 record and 4.64 ERA.
