Houston (CBS Houston)  Tuesday, General Manager Jeff Luhnow announced that the Astros have selected right-handed pitcher David Martinez from Triple A Oklahoma City and catcher Max Stassi from Double A Corpus Christi.

The ballclub also announced that catcher Carlos Corporan has been placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list and left-handed pitcher Wade LeBlanc has been designated for assignment.

Monday night, Corporan was struck in the head by a foul tip and had to leave the game against the Rangers.

This begins Major League starts for Martinez and Stassi.

According to the ballclub:

Martinez, 26, spent most of this season at Corpus before being promoted to Oklahoma City earlier this month.  He combined14-3 with a 2.20 ERA in 28 appearances. He is a product of the Astros Venezuelan Academy after signing as a non-drafted free agent on March 3, 2005.

Stassi, 22, named both the Astros Texas League Player of the Month and TOPPS Texas League Player of the Month after hitting  .333, 11 HR & 24 RBI. Stassi was acquired by the Astros from Oakland on Feb. 4 along with outfielder/first baseman Chris Carter and right-handed pitcher Brad Peacock in exchange for shortstop Jed Lowrie and right-handed pitcher Fernando Rodriguez.
