Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23. C Max Stassi is behind the plate and is hitting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano.
Fantasy Tip: Stassi ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has only 13 at-bats for the Astros this year but does have five hits and a home run in that short span. Regardless, he's at the bottom of the order and isn't attractive at all on FantasyScore on a day with a full slate of games.

Houston Astros C Max Stassi will bat eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Aaron Brooks Sunday, Sept. 20.
Fantasy Tip: Stassi ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is 3-for-9 with a home run and two RBIs. He has plenty of upside and is worth considering in FantasyScore if you're desperate for cap relief.

Houston Astros C Hank Conger is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront Monday, Sept. 7. C Max Stassi will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should return to the lineup in the next game or two. Stussi ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) probably should not be a starting option in most fantasy leagues.

Houston Astros C Max Stassi is in the lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Seattle Mariners.
Fantasy Tip: Stassi was called up from Class AAA earlier in the week when C Jason Castro went on the 15-day disabled list. He may be a decent source of low-cost production depending on how much he plays in Castro's absence.

Houston Astros C Jason Castro (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a quadriceps injury. The team also recalled C Max Stassi from Class AAA Fresno.
Fantasy Tip: Hank Conger ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) probably will receive most of the starts with Castro out of the lineup. Conger is hitting only .215 this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.
