Astros' Max Stassi comes off bench for first career home run
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros catcher Max Stassi hit a pinch-hit home run in a 10-6 win over the A's on Saturday.

Stassi has only gotten two starts for the Astros, but he's done well in his pinch-hit appearances. The youngster has only recorded nine at-bats this season and he'll be lucky to reach 20, simply due to the fact they need to give at-bats to Hank Conger and Jason Castro. Keep an eye on him in a couple of years though.

Astros C Jason Castro (quad) goes on DL; Max Stassi recalled
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros catcher Jason Castro has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. Castro left Friday's game with a strained quad muscle. While originally the team wasn't expected to place him on the DL, it appears his condition did not improve enough and he will miss at least the next 15 days.

Max Stassi has been recalled from Triple-A and is expected to be available for Saturday's game against the Twins.

Astros option Dominguez, Buchanan, Stassi; reassign Correa
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Astros optioned third baseman Matt Dominguez and pitchers Jake Buchanan and Max Stassi to the minors Sunday while reassigning shortstop Carlos Correa, infielder Gregorio Petit, catcher Tyler Heineman and pitchers Darin Downs and James Hoyt to minor-league camp.

Dominguez opened last season as the team's starting third baseman but found himself behind in the race for a bench role this spring.

"[Luis] Valbuena had an amazing spring so far and is basically going to be our third baseman and that leaves Matt in competition with some of the other guys for an extra spot on the roster, a spot off the bench, and right now we feel like there’s a couple of other guys ahead of him and he needs to play every day," general manager Jeff Lunhow said, per MLB.com "Right now he’ll go down to Fresno and play third and play some first and be ready when the need arises."

Correa is the team's top-rated prospect but has yet to play above high Class A.

"Carlos is going to be a star player in the big leagues. It’s just a matter of time," Luhnow said. "Having never had an at-bat in Double-A, he needs to go get some regular work in the high minors. He did a great job for us on the field as well as off the field and I think he’s got a lot of fans in the organization and he impressed the big league staff, which is what you want as a young player."

Astros manager A.J. Hinch offers advice to C Max Stassi
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

During a batting practice session Friday, Astros manager A.J. Hinch noticed he could assist with some fundamental work behind the plate with catcher Max Stassi

With Stassi catching pitcher Chad Qualls, Hinch advised him to turn his shoulder on certain pitches, according to the Houston Chronicle

“There’s some angles you try to create both for the visual for the pitcher and also for the benefit of the umpire,” he said. “With all the talk of the framing stuff, we want to get the most strikes out of our pitchers. There’s certainly techniques to pay attention to even in side sessions and live BPs.”

For Stassi, it appears he was happy with the advice from Hinch, a former major-league catcher. 

“He’s caught in the big leagues," Stassi said. "He’s been there and done that. He was just giving me a few tips. It’s just framing and the positioning of your body too. It’s just real simple, a better presentation of the pitch for your pitcher and the umpire.
