Christian Bethancourt hits Triple-A DL
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/19/14) Braves catching prospect Christian Bethancourt has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Gwinnett, due to a left hand contusion. Bethancourt is hitting .268/.292/.393 in 313 at-bats at Gwinnett, and shouldn't be out long. 
Christian Bethancourt sent down
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/21/14) The Braves optioned catcher Christian Bethancourt to Triple-A Gwinnett to make room for Evan Gattis' return from the disabled list. Bethancourt batted .240 with three RBI in 50 at-bats.
When Evan Gattis returns, Christian Bethancourt to head down
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/14) 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.

Juan Jaime demoted to make room for Christian Bethancourt
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/28/14) A roster spot for promising minor league catcher Christian Bethancourt has been cleared by the Braves by the demotion of right-hander Juan Jaime to Triple-A Gwinnett. Bethancourt was called up to be the 26th man for the Saturday doubleheader, but the opening of the spot will allow him to stay.

The upshot could be the moving of Evan Gattis to left field and benching of unproductive B.J. Upton.

The 22-year-old Bethancourt owned a decent .273/.304/.372 stat line at the Triple-A level.

The clearing of a 25-man spot for Bethancourt indicates that Gattis, who is dealing with a back problem, could be out for a few more days but might not be destined for the disabled list.

Christian Bethancourt not a big deal in Fantasy
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/14) Even if the Braves are considering calling up Christian Bethancourt to play catcher, as MLB.com recently reported, all it would mean for Fantasy owners is an increase in Evan Gattis' playing time. True, with Gattis moving to left field, B.J. Upton would be out of a job, but it's not like anyone's still holding out hope for a rebound from him.

Bethancourt is only a prospect because of his defense. He doesn't offer enough offensive potential to move the needle in Fantasy, particularly at a deep position. Even with a recent hot streak at Triple-A Gwinnett that has him batting .312 over his last 37 games, he's still batting just .274 with a .672 OPS overall. He did show so improvement with a .277 batting average and 12 home runs in 358 at-bats at Double-A Mississippi last year, but his step back this year shows his bat is still far from major league ready.

Maybe he could put up numbers along the lines of a Tyler Flowers or, in a best-case scenario, a Welington Castillo, but that would make him no more than a desperation option in two-catcher leagues.
