Catcher

Astros
HOUSTON, TX – AUGUST 23: Max Stassi /

Max Stassi

Stassi is a former top prospect trying to re-establish himself. This season, he and fellow catcher Juan Centeno formed a dynamic catching duo down at Triple-A Fresno. Stassi hit .272 with an On-Base Percentage of .393, and the power returned for Stassi, as he smashed 14 Home runs and 15 doubles. While the 26-year-old backstop may never be an elite catcher, he has shown some substantial backup catcher potential

Chuckie Robinson

A 21st round pick of the Astros in 2016, Robinson had a fantastic season at Class A Quad Cities. The Southern Mississippi product hit .275 with 15 long shots, 77 RBI’s, and an On-Base Percentage at .330. The late round product could shoot up prospect boards, and will more than likely be in the Astros top 30 pretty soon with the trade of Jake Rogers to Detroit thinning the catching depth chart.

Honorable Mention

Juan Centeno

.311/.354/.383, 1 Hr, 12 2B’s. Centeno played at Triple-A Fresno and at the MLB level. He is now the third catcher on a major league postseason roster. Wow.

Jamie Ritchie

.256/.382/.335, 3 HR, 20 RBI’s, hit for the first cycle in Corpus Christi Hooks history.
