Braves, A.J. Pierzynski agree to deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2014) The Braves have agreed to a deal with catcher A.J. Pierzynski, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports. Pierzynski's deal is expected to be for about $2 million, but it won't be finalized until January.

Pierzynski will fill a veteran presence to complement young catcher Christian Bethancourt, and the agreement also means the Braves are serious about moving forward with Evan Gattis in left field full-time, according to Eye On Baseball.

Pierzynski hit .251/.288/.337 in 338 at-bats between Boston and St. Louis in 2014. However, he managed to smack a combined 44 home runs over his previous two seasons.

The 2013 first-round pick Gonzalez went 12-6 with a 2.66 ERA and 1.18 WHIP last season between high Class A and Double-A.

Report: Braves/Astros discussed deal for Evan Gattis


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Oakland was involved in a shocking deal on Friday, and it doesn't appear the club is done making deals just yet. Upton is coming off a season in which he hit .270/.342/.491 over 566 at-bats. The 27-year-old is entering the final year of his contract.

Gattis hit .263/.317/.493 over 369 at-bats. He was hindered by a back injury over the second half of the year. Gattis won't be a free-agent until 2019.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) The Marlins have expressed interest in acquiring Braves catcher Evan Gattis and Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, according to the Miami Herald.

Gattis has been mentioned in trade rumors this offseason. It has also been spectulated he could move from catcher to left field.

Gattis, 28, hit .263 with 22 homers and 52 RBI last season while Davis, 28, hit .196 with 26 homers and 72 RBI. Davis was also third in the MVP race in 2013, hitting .286, 53 homers, 138 RBI.


Report: Braves could shift Evan Gattis to left field in 2015


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Now that the Braves have traded Jason Heyward to the Cardinals on Monday, it appears as if Atlanta could try to shift Justin Upton to right field and catcher Evan Gattis to left field, president of baseball operations John Hart said, per USA Today.

Gattis appeared in a career-high 108 games in his second season in the majors in 2014, but has never made an appearance at left field for the Braves. Manager Fredi Gonzalez indicated at the end of the season that Gattis could be an option to play left field at the start of the 2015 season.


Braves' Hart: Evan Gattis rumor is 'absolutely inaccurate'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) Braves president of baseball operations John Hart didn't seem too pleased with the report from the New York Post that the team is pushing hard to trade catcher Evan Gattis, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"We are coming in with the idea that we don’t have to trade anybody," Hart said. "We have received calls on people. We haven’t had any conversations yet. That (Gattis rumor) is absolutely inaccurate. And quite frankly, I think anybody that says that, if you look, I’ve got two corner outfielders (Justin Upton, Jason Heyward) who’ve got one year left (before free agency) and I’ve got one potential corner outfielder (Gattis) that’s got four years left (under contractual control)."
