A tough, throwback-style catcher, Astro prospect Max Stassi is one of the best defensive backstops in the minor leagues, with plus catch-and-throw skill and a work ethic that's helped him rise through the prospect ranks. His game took a couple of detours through shoulder surgery and subsequent recovery in the past couple of seasons, but he should be back at full strength for 2013. At the plate, that strength makes him look increasingly like an all-or-nothing slugger, striking out more than once per game but reaching the bleachers with increasing frequency. With a solid knack for game calling and the leadership style to hold a team together, he's got all the makings of a major league captain... and probably a manager someday after that, even if he can't ever really hit a good curve ball.

Max Stassi has been traded to the Astros as part of the five player trade involving Jed Lowrie, according to ESPN. Stassi has a more clear path to the bigs in Houston, which could benefit from a team-leading personality as much as they could from a quality backstop.
