News: Gattis is out of the lineup Friday against the Phillies. Impact: Gattis has been used mostly as a pinch hitter since returning from an illness caused by kidney stones.

News: Gattis (illness) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Pirates. Impact: As expected, Gattis is in the lineup Thursday for the first time since Sept. 7, after being used as a pinch-hitter three of the previous five days. He will only catch five innings or so, however, as manager Fredi Gonzalez wants to ease the 28-year-old back into action after the long layoff.(RotoWire, )

News: Gattis (illness) is expected to play approximately five innings Thursday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Impact: Manager Fredi Gonzalez doesn't want to overexert Gattis in his first start since Sept. 7, so he'll have him catch only the five innings or so starter David Hale will be on the mound. Gattis was originally forced out of action due to a bout of strep throat, but he was later diagnosed with a kidney stone, resulting in the extended absence. He's been able to pinch hit three of the past four days.(RotoWire, )

News: Gattis (illness) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Pirates. Impact: Although Gattis was able to pinch hit again Tuesday night, marking his third time coming off the bench in four days, he's evidently still not healthy enough to man the backstop for Atlanta. The 28-year-old appears to stand a fairly good chance of starting again before the end of the season, given his recent activity, but nothing's definite.(RotoWire, )

News: Gattis (illness) is out of the Braves' lineup again Tuesday. Impact: The team thought Gattis would be out only a few days with a kidney stone, but he's been out nearly week. Gattis has, however, pinch hit twice in the last three days.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 22, 2014
News: Gattis (illness) remains out of the lineup Monday against the Pirates. Impact: Gattis has been out of the starting lineup since Sept. 7, and although he was able to work in a pinch-hit appearance this past weekend, manager Fredi Gonzalez will continue to rest his catcher. With the Braves' playoff hopes having fizzled away, there appears to be little incentive to rush the 28-year-old back to action.(RotoWire, )
Sep 21, 2014
News: Gattis (illness) remains without a clear timetable for return, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. Impact: It's been nearly two weeks since Gattis has appeared in the starting lineup, although he was able to work in a pinch-hit appearance in Saturday's game. Manager Fredi Gonzalez hopes to have him back in a higher capacity at some point this week, but the exact day is unclear at the moment. Due to the uncertainty, he's a risky play in any weekly lineup format.(RotoWire, )

News: Gattis (illness) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets. Impact: Gattis hasn't started in two weeks due to a kidney stone and a bout with strep throat, but he did manage to make a pinch-hit appearance Saturday. Still, it remains unclear if he'll be healthy enough to play regularly behind the plate over the last week of the season, which likely makes him an unappealing fantasy option for the final slate of games. Christian Bethancourt will make another start at catcher Sunday.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Sep 20, 2014
News: Gattis (kidney stones) is out of the lineup Saturday, MLB.com''s Mark Bowman reports. Impact: Gattis attempted batting practice Friday but didn't pinch hit, as he would have been available if he was doing well. It's unclear how much longer it will be before he can return, but the team has no incentive to rush him as they are out of playoff contention.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 19, 2014
News: Gattis (kidney stone) is not in the lineup Friday. Impact: He was diagnosed with a kidney stone on Wednesday after an extended illness, which was originally believed to be strep throat. He should still be considered day-to-day, and should be able to return before the end of the season. Christian Bethancourt will get the start behind the dish.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 19, 2014
News: Gattis (kidney stones) is going to attempt to take batting practice before Friday's game and could pinch-hit if he responds well, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien reports. Impact: This would be the first time Gattis has participated in on-field baseball activities since his illness began, and it suggests he's close to returning to the Braves' lineup. Christian Bethancourt will start behind the dish Friday.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
News: Gattis (illness) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals. Impact: Gattis has been out the last eight games with strep throat, which will force him out again Wednesday night. Christian Bethancourt will continue to start in his place.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
News: Gattis has been diagnosed with a kidney stone, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: The initial diagnosis of strep throat was accurate, but additional tests revealed irregularities, leading to the discovery of the kidney stone. Now that doctors have found the source of the issue, the hope is that Gattis, who will miss a ninth straight start Wednesday, can return in the next day or two.(RotoWire, )
