Angels place C Max Stassi on IL, select C Austin Romine

The Angels placed catcher Max Stassi on the IL Tuesday evening, the team announced, and selected the contract of catcher Austin Romine to take his place on the active roster. As Stassi’s IL stint comes without an injury designation, it’s likely COVID-related, which would mean his time on the injured list has no minimum duration.
