Latest Update Braves intend to move Evan Gattis to LF full time in 2015. Wed Nov, 12, 07:33 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 should retain his catcher eligibility in most standard formats for next season making him a very valuable fantasy asset given his offensive production with catcher eligibility. With Gattis in the outfield it appears that Christian Bethancourt will likely get an extended look during Spring Training to earn the teams starting catcher spot.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
With Christian Bethancourt apparently ready for at least a share of the big league job, the Braves think they can improve elsewhere and go with him and maybe someone like Eli Whiteside whom they just signed to a minor league deal. It should be interesting to see what the Braves asking price would be for El Oso Blanco, who batted .263 with 22 home runs for them last year.Analyst: Howard Bender
Although the Braves are out of contention, Gattis is expected to play on Sunday. Those who are still fighting for a fantasy championship will want to get Gattis into starting lineups in the Braves final game of the season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Gattis' day of rest will make way for Christian Bethancourt to get another start behind the dish.Analyst: David Kerr
