Latest Update Evan Gattis (kidney stones) is expected to play nine innings on Sunday. Sun Sep, 28, 09:16 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.
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
This will be Gattis' first start since September 7, but he did pinch-hit in three of the last five games. While he'll get the nod today, he is not expected to catch the full game as manager Fredi Gonzalez wants to ease him back in.Analyst: Howard Bender
Gattis is still recovering from kidney stones, but has been able to pinch hit the last couple of days. If all goes well on Thursday, he'll likely continue to increase his workload and should be good to go by the end of this week.Analyst: Ben Diamond
