Latest Update Evan Gattis went 2-for-3 with a home run, double and two runs scored in the Braves loss to the Reds on Sunday. Sun Aug, 24, 05:41 PM
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 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
El Oso Blanco has been squatting behind the dish for the last seven-straight games, so it's time to give the big bear a rest. Gerald Laird will handle the work behind the plate Friday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Gattis is now just two home runs shy of tying last season total as he now sits with 19 home runs, 48 RBI and a .277 average through 354 at-bats. Although he ha just two home runs in the second half, there is still a good chance he reached 25 home runs by season's end, which is a territory not too many catchers reach now a days.

The Braves catcher has played in three straight games so is just getting a routine day off. Keep him in your lineups though because there is always the chance he will get a pinch hitting opportunity.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
