White Sox place C Max Stassi (hip) on injured list

Max Stassi

The Chicago White Sox on Monday placed catcher Max Stassi, who missed all of last season, on the 10-day injured list because of left hip inflammation.

Stassi, 33, had not played in a spring training game since March 20. Korey Lee was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte to fill his spot on the Opening Day roster.

Stassi suffered a hip strain during spring training in 2023 and eventually landed on the 60-day injured list. In September he announced he would not return this season while attending to a medical issue in his family.

“Well, remember, (Stassi) didn’t play last year,” White Sox manager Pedro Grifol said Sunday. “Any time you push him … I played him a couple days in a row and he was a little sore. But he’s working through it. He’s getting his work done.”

In 403 career games over 10 seasons with the Houston Astros (2013-19) and Los Angeles Angels (2020-22), Stassi has batted .212 with 41 home runs, 42 doubles and 128 RBIs.

Stassi was traded with infielder David Fletcher from the Angels to the Atlanta Braves on Dec. 8, 2023, for first baseman Evan White and minor-league left-hander Tyler Thomas.

The Braves traded him the next day with cash to the White Sox for a minor league player to be named later.
