The acquisition of Max Stassi gives the Astros a quality catching prospect with upside, which is one of the few areas that this revamped system was still lacking in.

Newly acquired Brad Peacock will join his third team in as many seasons this year. During that time frame Peacock has experienced extreme highs and lows. He put himself on the map with an impressive 2011 campaign where he started in AA-ball and ended in the majors all while posting solid numbers. He was not able to build on that success last season and posted a 6.01 ERA at the AAA level. Still he represents an intriguing pitching prospect for the Astros as he possesses the best strikeout numbers in the higher minors among Astros pitchers.
