Latest Update Evan Gattis is not in the Braves starting lineup on Monday. Mon Sep, 01, 09:52 AM
Owns a very potent bat, both in terms of average and power. He also usually sports a good walk/strikeout ratio, which also helps him offensively. Defensively, he can catch and also play in the outfield.
Flaws: : Needs some work defensively, especially if he is to remain a catcher at the big-league level. Also lacks running speed, which may hurt him if playing the outfield on a regular basis.
Gattis has started the last three games in a row, so he's just getting a breather here. Gerald Laird will handle the work behind the dish Monday.Analyst: Howard Bender
The catching market has been rather weak this season but Gattis continues to shine. Gattis will be a preseason top-five catcher next season and owners who have him this year are experiencing quality numbers from a saturated catching market. Start Gattis daily with extreme confidence.Analyst: Colby Conway
Despite a three-game hit streak, Gattis has been squatting behind the dish for the last four-straight games and could use the rest here on Thursday. Simple as that. Gerald Laird will don the tools of ignorance for the finale against the Mets.Analyst: Howard Bender
Gattis is one of the best hitting catchers in the game, but just has to stay healthy and off the D.L., if he wants to be an elite catcher in fantasy. His home run power makes him very valuable at the catcher position.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
