Houston Astros C Max Stassi (concussion) said Wednesday, Feb. 12, that he is over his concussion, and will be ready for spring training. "All that's in the past now. I feel 100 percent, ready to go," Stassi said. Stassi, who might be the team's catcher of the future, is likely to begin the season at Triple-A Oklahoma City as long as Cs Jason Castro and Carlos Corporan remain healthy.

The Houston Astros placed C Carlos Corporan (concussion) on the 7-day disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 20, and recalled C Max Stassi and P David Martinez from the minors in corresponding moves.

Houston Astros C Max Stassi is set to be called up from Double-A Corpus Christi Tuesday, Aug. 20, for his major league debut. C Carlos Corporan (head) will head to the disabled list after leaving the game Monday, Aug. 19, with a possible concussion. Stassi was batting .277 with 17 home runs and 60 RBIs at Corpus Christi.
Fantasy Tip: Stassi, who has 20-homer pop as a backstop, will serve as the backup to Jason Castro. That'll limit his fantasy value to the deepest of AL-only leagues.
