The Astros have placed starting catcher, Brian McCann on the 10-day DL. Reports are saying he has suffered a sore knee, which he has encountered before. Despite Brian McCann hitting a weak .219/.313/.351, he's been valued as a leader of a really good pitching staff with a lot of breakout stars. Plus McCann has caught 32% of runners trying to steal on him this season. With the injury to McCann, Max Stassi who has batted a decent .300/.371/.525 in 89 PA's this season will likely get most of the playing time until further notice, and The Astros have selected Tim Federowicz contract to add more depth.
