Born in Sacramento, CA, Brock James Stassi is a first baseman that has been in the Phillies, Twins, Giants, and A's organizations. He was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 33rd round of the 2011 Major League Baseball draft out of University of Nevada, Reno.

His minor league breakout season came with Reading in 2015, when he posted a .300/.394/.470 slash line with career-highs in home runs (15) and RBI (90) in 133 games, helping lead Reading to first place in the Eastern League Division standings while earning an All-Star berth.

Additionally, Stassi led the league in RBI and doubles (32), ending second in total bases (225) and walks (77), third in on OBP and runs scored (76), fifth in hits (140), and sixth in home runs.

In addition to his offensive contributions, Stassi led Eastern League first baseman with a .995 fielding percentage, making five errors in 112 games. At the end of the season, he was selected as the winner of the 2015 Eastern League Most Valuable Player Award.

In 2016, playing for the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs in the International League, he hit .267/.369/.437 with 12 home runs and 58 RBI.

Stassi made the Phillies' Opening Day roster in 2017 and made his major league debut on Opening Day. In 51 games for Philadelphia, he batted .167/.278/.295 with 2 home runs and 7 RBI.

He was designated for assignment on August 31, 2017, to make room for newly-acquired Juan Nicasio on the 40-man roster and elected free agency on November 6, 2017.

Stassi's father, grandfather, and great-grandfather played as catchers in the minor leagues. His younger brother, Max, is a catcher who debuted with the Houston Astros in 2013.

Brock and Max hold an annual charity event that began in 2009 in their hometown of Yuba City, California; the money collected goes to 12 food banks within a 50-mile radius of Yuba City and Hands of Hope, a charity that offers support to homeless children.
