Astros rookie C Max Stassi back from concussion
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)
Houston rookie catcher Max Stassi has rejoined the team in the same ballpark where he was hit by a pitch in the jaw and missed a month with a concussion.
Stassi hasn't played since Aug. 21 at Rangers Ballpark, where a pitch from Texas reliever Tanner Scheppers glanced off his left shoulder and hit him in the jaw the day after his major league debut. Stassi spent a night in an Arlington hospital before returning to Houston.
Stassi, who had been called up from Double-A Corpus Christi, got his first big league RBI when he was hit by Scheppers' pitch with the bases loaded.
