Round One, Match Eighteen

Max Stassi, C

Despite having ML experience on his resume, Stassi did not have a season to write home about. His power did not look as good as it did in AA and he continues to not impress in concerns of his overall offensive profile. He has a good defensive reputation which the Astros are known for taking much pride in for their catchers. -- Subber10

VS.

Conrad Gregor, 1B

Drafted in the fourth round out of Vanderbilt in 2013, Gregor became one of the fastest movers in the system, beginning the 2014 season in Single-A Quad Cities, advancing through Lancaster, and ending the year in Double-A Corpus Christi. That’s a lot of adjustments to make in one season, and his batting line suffered once he hit the Texas League, but once he has time to make adjustments, he should be able to handle the high minors better. His swing is simple and uncomplicated, he has an advanced eye at the plate, and he has shown excellent pitch selection: In Lancaster, he drew more walks (27) than strikeouts (25). He doesn’t have ideal power for a first baseman, but is capable of muscling the occasional ball over the wall. -- Anthony Boyer
