Chicago White Sox acquire catcher Max Stassi in trade with Atlanta Braves

CHICAGO (AP) — Max Stassi was traded from Atlanta to the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, one day after the veteran catcher was acquired by the Braves in a deal with the Los Angeles Angels.

The White Sox received Stassi and cash considerations from Atlanta in exchange for a player to be named or cash.

Stassi, 32, did not play this season. He strained his left hip in spring training, and the team said on Sept. 9 that while he was capable of resuming baseball activities, he would miss the rest of the season because of a serious family medical issue.

Stassi has a .212 career average with 41 homers and 128 RBIs in 10 seasons with Houston (2013-19) and the Angels (2019-23).

The Braves acquired Stassi and infielder David Fletcher from the Angels on Friday for infielder Evan White and left-hander Tyler Thomas.

Stassi was selected by Oakland in the fourth round of the 2009 amateur draft. He was traded to the Astros in February 2013 as part of a five-player deal.
