RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The Astros have a logjam at the catcher position and Stassi currently has the least big league experience of the backstops on their 40-man roster. Known for his bat as opposed to his arm and defense behind the plate, the soon-to-be 24-year-old struggled last season for Triple-A Oklahoma City, hitting .247/.296/.378 with nine home runs and 45 RBI in 101 games. While it was his first full season with fewer than 13 long balls, Stassi remained healthy for the most part, logging 425 plate appearances. It's possible that he'll repeat Triple-A again, but his future in Houston is currently undecided. His clearest path at playing time would likely come as the backup to Hank Conger if Jason Castro is traded. Then again, Stassi could be a trade candidate himself if the Astros choose experience over youth and upside.

2014

Stassi, a right-handed hitting catcher known for his excellent bat and average defense behind the plate, put together a fine offensive campaign for Double-A Corpus Christi after undergoing sports hernia surgery last offseason. In 76 games, the soon-to-be 23-year-old slashed .277/.333/.529 with 17 home runs and 60 RBI before an injury to Astros backup catcher, Carlos Corporan, opened the door for him in Houston. Stassi's time in the majors was short-lived, however, after he was forced to the disabled list with a concussion. Stassi has been hampered by a number of injuries throughout his career, but if he can stay healthy and keep hitting like he has in the minors, he could easily overtake Corporan as the backup behind Jason Castro. He will most likely return to Triple-A for the start of the 2014 campaign, but there's a good chance he will spend more time in Houston next season.

2010

The A's selected Stassi in the fourth round of the June draft, but he's considered to be first-round talent and signability concerns led to his slide down the draft board. The track record for high school catchers isn't great, and we won't have a feel for Stassi's pro prospects for several more seasons, but the scouting report on him is pretty favorable.
