Tigers SP David Price takes no-decision on Thursday vs. Astros


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) Tigers starter David Price was solid in a no-decision on Thursday against the Astros. Price went 6 2/3 innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits. He walked one and struck out a season-high 12 batters, as the Tigers won 6-5 in 11 innings.

Pitching with a 5-0 lead, Price was throwing shutout ball until the top of the seventh. He allowed an RBI triple to Evan Gattis, followed by a couple of run-scoring singles before being lifted for a reliever. 

"I kind of made some adjustments throughout the week, and that's the best I've felt on the mound regardless of results," said Price, per MLive.com

"I don't care about the strikeouts. I don't care about the runs there in the seventh inning. That's the best I've felt, that's the best I've thrown the baseball this year."

That makes back-to-back quality outings for Price, who lowered his ERA to 3.32. He's scheduled to toe the rubber next on Tuesday in Oakland. 

"He did an excellent job, really," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "He commanded the fastball to both sides of he plate, used his curveballs, change up, cutter very effectively. I just think it was a case where they strung some hits together and scored a few runs. It was still an excellent outing for him."


Astros DH Evan Gattis launches two-run home run on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Astros designated hitter Evan Gattis belted his eighth home run of the season in Wednesday's 6-1 victory over the A's. His two-run bomb off Jesse Hahn in the bottom of the sixth broke a 1-1 tie. It was his only hit of the afternoon.

"It's good to be hitting the ball again, and it's good that actions speak louder than anything that anybody said that's running me out there," Gattis said of the Astros' faith in him, per MLB.com. "I'm grateful for that."

Home runs aside, Gattis has really struggled at the plate this season. He's now hitting a dismal .196 and carries a poor .213 on-base percentage.

"I think our offense is competent enough to know if we can hang in there long enough, somebody is going to do something, and then once somebody does that one thing, it seems to propel everybody else to have good at-bats and continue some innings," manager A.J. Hinch said.

Catcher Evan Gattis: Astros have 'something special'


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Evan Gattis early season struggles are suddenly in the rear view mirror and the Astros are rolling. After his two home runs helped seal Houston's 10th straight victory, the catcher said the team is coming together, per the Houston Chronicle

"I've never had this much fun on any team," Gattis said. "We have reason to be excited. I don't know what it is, if it's chemistry or what. Whatever it is, we have it."

Gattis has crushed four homers over the course of three straight days, a far cry from the start of the season, when he went 0 for his first 23 at-bats. 

"We're having fun," he said. "It's been also the most fun personally I've ever had on a team. I think we might have something special."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Then in the eighth, Gattis did it again, this time to give Houston's the lead for good. He ripped a solo shot over the left center field wall off of Carson Smith, his sixth of the season.

"I've been the one guy that's sort of stayed even on him," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said to MLB.com. "He's in the top percentage of guys who hit the ball as hard as anybody in the game. He has been doing that even though he wasn't getting hits. I get the numbers are going to be screwy a little bit for the time being until he builds back up, but the presence he brings, even in his downtime, matters in our clubhouse, matters in our dugout.

Gattis has now hit four home runs in his last five games and boosted his average to .198 with 17 RBI in 86 at-bats.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"It was pretty exciting when he got back to the dugout," manager A.J. Hinch said after the game, per the Associated Press. "Everyone in that clubhouse knows how much he's grinding to try to break out. So maybe this is a sign of things to come. He certainly takes every at-bat as if it's his last at-bat."

Hinch blames struggles of DH Gattis on new environment


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Astros manager A.J. Hinch has been motivated to defend struggling designated hitter Evan Gattis, who has just two hits in 28 at-bats to start the season.

Gattis, who arrived in Houston via trade wth Atlanta, slammed 82 extra-base hits with the Braves over the last two years combined. He has two measly singles so far in 2015.

"There's always an adjustment to a new team," Hinch told MLB Network Radio. "There's probably a little extra frustration when the hits aren't coming."

The good news for Gattis is that his two hits have come in the last two games, indicating that he could be emerging from his slump.


Astros' Evan Gattis picks up first hit of season Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Astros designated hitter Evan Gattis recorded his first hit of the season Monday, going 1 for 4 in his team's 8-1 loss to the A's.

Gattis entered the day 0 for 20 at the plate and extended the hitless run to 23 at-bats, making the final out in an inning twice. He wasn then able to single to lead off the ninth inning to finally get on the board.

"It's been a grind for him to get a hit," manager A.J. Hinch said after the game, per MLB.com. "He hit the ball on the nose early in the game. He cares a lot and works hard. He's a good hitter and he's going to get hits. The timing of the year really exaggerated what he was going through. He's hit the ball on the nose a number of times these first six or seven games. Evan Gattis will get plenty of hits for us."

Gattis's hitless streak actually dates back to last season, as his last hit with the Braves came on Sept. 6. All in all, he went 37 straight at-bats without recording a hit.


Astros not concerned with catcher Evan Gattis' slow start


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Astros catcher Evan Gattis has started the first week of the season in a bit of a slump. Coming into Saturday's game, Gattis was yet to record a hit and had nine strikeouts in his 15 at-bats. Manager A.J. Hinch isn't ready to start worrying yet, reports MLB.com.

"It's early," Hinch said. "It's not a ton of at-bats. No one is more frustrated than him. He's not used to having stretches like that, but he's a pro. He's a good player, and he's going to make adjustments. I have very little concern about Evan and how productive he's going to be."

Hinch also flip-flopped struggling DH Evan Gattis and Chris Carter in the batting order. Gattis has started his stint with the Astros 0 for 11 with eighth strikeouts. He will hit fifth, while Carter will move to the cleanup spot.


Astros' Evan Gattis strikes out four times for second straight game


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Astros designated hitter Evan Gattis struggled mightily at the plate for the second consecutive game on Thursday. Gattis struck out four times in four at-bats, just as he did on Wednesday.

"I've never been booed by my own fans before," he said, per MLB.com.

"It's embarrassing," he said. "I'm pretty sure I've never done [0-for-4 with four strikeouts] in my career before [Wednesday], and then two in a row. … Yeah, it's disappointing. I'm just a better hitter than what I've done so far this year."

Astros manager A.J. Hinch classified struggles as two bad days at work.

"We've all had them," Hinch said. "For him, when he's DHing, I think the hard part is getting over that being the only thing you're doing. You're out there to hit, and you love to hit. No doubt it's a couple of bad days at work."


Astros C Evan Gattis hopes to stay injury-free in 2015


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Astros catcher Evan Gattis is entering the 2015 season healthy. He hopes to keep it that way too. 

In the past two seasons, the first two of his in the MLB, Gattis has dealt with injuries that caused him to miss numerous games. With the Braves, before being dealt to Houston this past January, he played 105 games in 2013 and 108 in 2014. Oblique and back injuries caused him to miss quite a few games, though he said he's feeling fine entering 2015. Gattis did have a minor wrist injury during spring training. 

"I feel like spring was really good," Gattis said, via the Houston Chronicle. "Other than the wrist thing, the scare, I feel like healthy, 100 percent ready to go."

In his first two seasons, Gattis has hit .253 and 43 home runs. The Astros face the Indians Monday night.
