When Evan Gattis returns, Christian Bethancourt to head down


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Wednesday that the team has no plans to move Evan Gattis to a different position when he returns, meaning Christian Bethancourt will likely be sent back to the minors when Gattis is activated, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

An excellent defensive catcher, Bethancourt has hit .281/.324/.313 in 32 at-bats over eight games since joining the Braves. There was speculation the team could be entertaining a positional shift of Gattis even before his back injury. However, it appears the Braves will stick with Gattis behind the plate and let Bethancourt continue to develop at the Triple-A level.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Reds catcher Brayan Pena is back in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Cubs, his first start in a week.

First base situation could determine Tucker Barnhart's role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Reds reserve catcher Tucker Barnhart remained on the roster Tuesday, despite the return of Brayan Pena from the paternity leave list.

Manager Bryan Price told MLB.com the decision on whether to sent Banhart down in the next few days has not yet been made. He is hitting just .107 with one home run in 10 games in the majors, but could hang around with Pena an option to fill in at first base in the absence of Joey Votto.

"If I get to the point where I put Pena more as a -- I don't want to say full-time -- but a primary first baseman, then that would create a little bit more opportunity for Tucker," Price said. "But still, "Devin Mesoraco] is going to get a lion's share of the playing time."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos has thrown out 53 percent of basestealers in 2014, which is a nice increase from the 29 percent he threw out last season. Ramos credits the increase to the Nationals' pitchers being quicker to the plate and holding runners a lot better.

Ramos added his hamstring is doing well since coming off the disabled list June 26.

"The leg is going [well]," Ramos said. "Running is getting better. I'm working every day. I feel more strong right now. That's what I want. I go out there and play smart."


Cubs will continue to find starts for John Baker


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"It's where we believe that the combination of both [Welington Castillo] and [Baker] fit," Renteria said, per MLB.com. "We obviously want both of them to be able to receive. We want [Castillo] to be in there. And with [Castillo] coming off of that DL stint, he's been playing pretty consistently. So we're trying to get him into shape. He's another guy who likes playing every single day, just as all those guys do. So we'll just work it through and see how it continues to develop."
