Robert Harvey James (born August 15, 1958 in Glendale, California), is a former professional baseball player who pitched in the major leagues primarily as a relief pitcher from 1978-1987.

James was the first round draft pick in 1976 by the Montreal Expos, and joined the major league team in 1978 when he was just twenty years old.[1] On December 7, 1984, James was traded to the Chicago White Sox for Vance Law. The following season, he saved 32 games for the White Sox, second in the American League behind only Dan Quisenberry.[1] James pitched two more years for the White Sox before being released.
