The Angels have indeed traded for Astros catcher Max Stassi, a source confirmed. @Joelsherman1 and @Feinsand were on it.— Fabian Ardaya (@FabianArdaya) July 31, 2019

Max Stassi has no options. Another roster move to come.— Maria Torres (@maria_torres3) July 31, 2019
Stassi, 28, is a career .218/.298/.354 hitter. A fourth-round selection by Oakland in 2009, Stassi has played his entire big league career with the Astros. He is a solid defender.
28-year old catcher, been around for a while with 2.6 fWAR and +19 Def last year, +6.1 Def this year. Let's see the cost. https://t.co/AMQHF8jgDW— Rahul Setty (@RahulSetty_) July 31, 2019
