|Evan Gattis catches five innings in second rehab game |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/18/14) Braves catcher Evan Gattis was able to play the field in his second rehab game.
Gattis lasted five inning behind the plate. He went 0 for 2 at the plate before he was removed from the game. Gattis is hoping to return to the majors Monday.
|Evan Gattis' comeback story was one of the more intriguing storylines from the 2013 season. Gattis, who took a hiatus from playing baseball in college before returning to the sport in 2010 as a 23rd-round pick, broke camp with the Braves last year following a torrid spring and was even the team's primary catcher at the beginning of the season while Brian McCann was recovering from shoulder surgery. He made such a strong impression as a rookie that the Braves let McCann sign with the Yankees in the offseason and are ready to trust Gattis with the starting catcher job heading into 2014. Though, Gerald Laird and Ryan Doumit are also on the roster in case Gattis fails to meet expectations. Still, Fantasy owners will be pulling hard for Gattis to succeed because he packs plenty of wallop in his swing. Gattis slugged .480 in 105 games last season, while adding 21 home runs, 21 doubles and 65 RBI. He hit .308 with a .549 slugging percentage and .923 OPS in 227 minor-league games, showcasing plenty of offensive potential. Gattis is going to make an intriguing mid-round Fantasy sleeper on Draft Day.
