Evan Gattis getting up to speed on rehab assignment


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) Braves catcher Evan Gattis got through his first rehab assignment without issue Thursday, as he served as a designated hitter for Triple-A Gwinnett.

Gattis went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in his first action since he was sidelined in late June by a back injury. He told MLB.com after the game he will need a handful of games to get his timing right, and that batting is his main concern at this point.

"It'll take time," Gattis said. "I think hits will be there and everything like that will come back. I'm really just happy to get through this one healthy. First time seeing live pitching, first time really trying to gear up for a fastball. In [batting practice], you just can't replicate it at game speed. So, it was really good."

The injury only bothers Gattis when he swings, so he is not sure when he will get behind the plate for Gwinnett. But he expects to do so before he returns to the majors.

"Other than striking out a couple of times, it went well," Gattis said. "Glad to get through this day, see some pitches and I feel good. I feel healthy, so hopefully, I get to catch in the next couple of days."
