BEFORE FAME

His first team, the Boston Red Sox, made a movie trailer playing his name off the “Chronicles of Riddick” movie with Vin Diesel. “It’s funny,” Josh told Yahoo Sports, “but I didn’t even know they were filming that at the time. I saw movie cameras all over the field for three days and I thought they were taping the whole team. So it was a surprise.”

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Josh had a career year in his first season with the World Champion Houston Astros in 2017, ranking fourth in the American League in batting average with a career-high .314 mark. He also posted career highs in hits (150), doubles (34), on-base percentage (.363), slugging percentage (.484) and OPS (.847). Among A.L. outfielders, Josh ranked second in batting, fourth in doubles, fourth in on-base percentage and sixth in OPS. He posted the 10th-lowest strikeout rate in the AL (13.3%) as he struck out in just 72 of 540 plate appearances and he tied for the MLB lead in sacrifice flies (12). Josh signed a four-year deal with the Astros as a free agent on November 23, 2016 after spending the season with the Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Dodgers. In 155 combined games between the A’s and Dodgers, he batted .281 with 17 doubles, 10 home runs and 37 RBI while also providing steady defense in right field. With LA, Josh tied for the major-league lead with a .400 batting average in September, going 26-for-65 in 20 games as the Dodgers captured the NL West title. On August 9 and 10, 2013 at Toronto, Josh homered five times to tie the Major League record for home runs over a two-game span.

FUN FACT

In his first two big-league starts for the Boston Red Sox in 2009, Josh recorded four hits, including two doubles and his first home run in the majors. He was the first Red Sox player to hit a home run within his first three games since Billy Conigliaro in 1969.
