|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.
|Evan Gattis could catch bullpens this weekend |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) Braves catcher Evan Gattis could be cleared to catch bullpen sessions this weekend, according to MLB.com.
That's the hope, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez. Gattis has been sidelined due to a back injury. The team has not put a timetable on his return just yet. He was hitting .290/.342/.558 over 224 at-bats prior to the injury.
|Manager: Evan Gattis won't be off DL right after All-Star break |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/7/14) Fredi Gonzalez has revealed that Braves catcher Evan Gattis will likely be out beyond the return of the team from the All-Star break, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
A back injury is still preventing Gattis from resuming baseball activities. The injury halted a fine season for Gattis, who had compiled a stat line of .290/.342/.558.
|Evan Gattis unsure of when he will return from DL |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/6/14) Braves catcher Evan Gattis (back) said Sunday he has not yet been cleared to run, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Gattis added he's unsure of when he will return from the disabled list.
|Evan Gattis receives epidural injection |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/2/14) As planned, Braves catcher Evan Gattis had an epidural for the bulging disc in his thoracic spine on Tuesday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday. Gattis was placed on the disabled list Monday and remains without a timetable. He owned a .290/.342/.558 slash line with 16 home runs and 39 RBI in 224 at-bats before landing on the DL.
|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.
