Astros: Steamer Projections for the Bullpen
8 of 9
Josh James: 1-1, 4.21 ERA, 1.34 WHIP
I’ve included Josh James here because Steamer projects 24 appearances from the enigmatic right hander after only 5 in 2021. James will be 29-years-old by Opening Day and it makes one wonder how many more opportunities he’ll get with the Astros.
James’ 13.3 career strikeouts per nine innings is overshadowed by his 5.1 walks per nine over his career. Way too many to be depended on in any close/late situation.
