|2014 summary: When the Braves committed to Evan Gattis behind the plate in 2014, most Fantasy owners assumed it would mean an increase in at-bats, opening the door for a possible 30-homer season or better based on his part-time work as a rookie. Instead, it gave manager Fredi Gonzalez an excuse to sit him every third game, resulting in just 15 more at-bats and one more home run. He did improve in other ways, though, and looked like he was on the verge of a breakthrough before an injury-plagued second half. He hit .290 with 16 home runs and a .900 OPS before the All-Star break.|
Playing time status: As the Braves' plans shifted with the trade market this offseason, Gattis' projected role for 2015 changed from left field to catcher back to left field with the departure of Justin Upton. And then they up and traded him to Houston, where he'll have the option of playing DH, probably his ideal position. The kidney stone that sidelined him for much of September should no longer be an issue.
2015 outlook: Fantasy owners should be celebrating Gattis' move to the Astros. Their park should maximize his home run potential with its short porch in left field, and he'll have a chance to play every day between DH, first base and left field. Meanwhile, he'll still be eligible at catcher in Fantasy. Few catchers get everyday at-bats, much less ones with 30-homer potential. After the elite trio of Buster Posey, Jonathan Lucroy and Devin Mesoraco, Gattis should probably be the first catcher-eligible player off the board.
