Astros activate Brian McCann and DFA Tim Federowicz

Brian McCann returns to the Astros lineup but could end Federowicz’s time in Houston. While this is not exactly breaking news, it was nice to see Brian McCann back with the Astros last night. Justin Verlander didn’t have his typical start with McCann calling the game, but he did get his eighth win of the year.

Max Stassi has been a Weapon for the Houston Astros in 2018

Max Stassi has been a Weapon for the Houston Astros in 2018

With other hitters at the bottom of the order struggling, Stassi has stepped up and proved himself. Has he emerged as the Astros catcher of the future? The Astros are certainly loaded with talent - at both the professional and minor league level - but that doesn’t mean the team lacks areas to improve.
