Houston Astros catcher Max Stassi has had plenty of experiences throughout his six seasons on the majors. But what happened on Tuesday night will be an experience he won’t soon forget.

During the second inning against the Oakland Athletics, Verlander called for a mound visit from his 27-year-old catcher with fewer than 100 games to his name. It seems Stassi missed Verlander’s point in the first visit, because he called for another visit seconds later and unleashed on his young catcher.

His 17th home run widened a one-run lead to three, lessened the blow of the four-run White Sox half-inning that preceded it and continued his five-week ascent up major league leaderboards.

Justin Verlander matched a career-high with 14 strikeouts but received no offensive support from the “That mental, 30 - second break, I didn’t think it was right to re-engage and go back out there. Pitching coach Brent Strom then paid a visit to see if Giles wanted to walk Sanchez or pitch to him.

Max Stassi will be the Astros primary catcher while Brian McCann hits the DL for the second time this year. The catcher for the Houston Astros, Max Stassi took many fans by surprise with his above-average numbers at the plate so far. Justin Verlander .
