|Report: Astros to recall Jonathan Villar, three others Tuesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/1/14) The Astros will recall infielder Jonathan Villar, catcher Max Stassi and pitcher Nick Tropeano and Jorge De Leon Tuesday when rosters expand, the Houston Chronicle reports.
The team will need to clear two 40-man roster spots for the pitchers. Villar hit .200/.255/.342 with six home runs, 22 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 225 at-bats with Houston before being sent to the minors.

|Max Stassi returns for Astros' final week |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(9/23/13) Astros catcher Max Stassi was activated from the 7-day concussion DL on Monday. Stassi has been out since Aug. 21, when he sustained a concussion from a hit-by-pitch.
Having appeared in only two games before getting hurt, Stassi is 2 for 6 so far this season with the Astros, and he hit .277 with 17 home runs at Double-A Corpus Christi earlier this year.
|Max Stassi still attempting to return |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(9/15/13) MLB.com reports Astros catcher Max Stassi has caught a bullpen session and taken batting practice this weekend, as he working towards returning to the team prior to the end of the season. Stassi has appeared in only two games with Houston this season, as he sustained a concussion on Aug. 21 when he was hit by a pitch.
|Max Stassi, we hardly knew ye. The 22-year-old backstop took a Tanner Scheppers fastball off the face seven at-bats into his mid-August callup, preventing him from joining All-Star Jason Castro in an alternating catcher-DH tandem. Of course, he's healthy now, so barring a flurry of activity this offseason, nothing is stopping the Astros from trying him in that role again. He'll need a big spring, in all likelihood. The Astros aren't contending anytime soon, so they wouldn't want to force the issue. Judging by the way he took off at Double-A Corpus Christi, though, Stassi isn't far from being a finished product. A non-entity in the minors up to that point, the former Athletics farmhand exploded for a .318 batting average and 16 homers in only 176 at-bats after the All-Star break, prompting his promotion. While he's not quite that good, Stassi has legitimate middle-of-the-order power -- the kind that would profile at DH as well as catcher -- which makes him an intriguing Fantasy option for the long haul. He may still be a couple years from meeting his full potential, but the Astros' willingness to use him last year makes him a worthwhile pick in AL-only leagues.
