Evan Gattis is not in the Braves starting lineup on Sunday.
Gattis has caught six of the last seven games and gets a day off Saturday. Well, maybe not a full day off if the Braves need his bat off the bench later in the game. Gattis is off to a solid start this season, batting .308 with six home runs and 13 RBI. Just be aware that he started off hot like this last year and then completely fell off the map. He might be a good sell-high candidate considering his below-average contact rates and heavy swing-percentage outside the zone. Also, his walk rate is down and his isolated power numbers are due for some regression. Add that all up and it reads no differently than the way it was last year.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
