News: Gattis (illness) is still out of the Braves' lineup Monday against the Nationals. Impact: He's presumably still dealing with strep throat, and has not played since Sept. 7 as a result of his illness. Gattis should still be considered day-to-day, and Christian Bethancourt will start behind the dish for Atlanta on Monday.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Sep 13, 2014
News: Gattis (illness) will not play Sunday against the Rangers, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Look for Gerald Laird to man the backstop in the finale against Texas, with Christian Bethancourt having started the last four for Atlanta. Gattis missed a fifth straight game Saturday due to strep throat and could remain out until Tuesday or Wednesday.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Sep 13, 2014
News: Gattis (strep throat) is not expected to play Sunday against the Rangers, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports. Impact: Gattis was said to be doing better Saturday morning, but a return for Sunday's finale is unlikely, according to Morosi, who went on to say Gattis may not play until Tuesday or Wednesday. Christian Bethancourt is making his fourth straight start behind the plate Saturday, so Gerald Laird figures to get the nod Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Gattis (illness) was felling better on Saturday morning, according to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Impact: Although not in the lineup Saturday, Gattis appears to stand a fairly good chance of returning for Sunday's series finale in light of his progress. For what it's worth, O'Brien said he wouldn't be surprised if Gattis came off the bench Saturday, after missing the previous four games with strep throat.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Sep 13, 2014
News: Gattis (illness) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Rangers. Impact: A bout of strep throat has already cost Gattis four starts, and he'll sit again Saturday as Christian Bethancourt mans the backstop for Atlanta. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Friday that he was hopeful to have Gattis back at some point this weekend, but a return for Sunday's series finale is by no means guaranteed.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: Gattis (illness) is out of the lineup Friday against the Rangers. Impact: Gattis has been out of the lineup since Monday with strep throat, but manager Fredi Gonzalez hopes to have him back at some point this weekend. Friday is no longer an option for Gattis' return, as Christian Bethancourt will start behind home plate and bat seventh for the Braves.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 9, 2014
News: Gattis (illness) remains out of the lineup Tuesday in Washington. Impact: Gattis' absence will extend into a second day as a result of strep throat. Christian Bethancourt will handle catcher and bat seventh in place of Gattis.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 9, 2014
News: Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said he is hopeful Gattis (illness) can play in this weekend's series against the Rangers, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: While Gattis was said to be doing a little better Tuesday, he will stay back at the hotel again and it sounds like Gonzalez has effectively ruled him out for Wednesday's finale against Washington. The team is then off Thursday, and with the DH option available in Texas, the hope is that Gattis will be able to play even if he isn't quite at 100 percent.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 8, 2014
News: Gattis has been diagnosed with strep throat and is not in Monday's lineup. Impact: It's not clear how much time Gattis will miss due to the illness, but it could be a few games. Gerald Laird will take his place behind the dish Monday.(RotoWire, )
Sun. Sep 7, 2014
News: Gattis went 3 for 5 with his 22nd home run in Saturday's 4-3 win at Miami. Impact: Gattis delivered the go-ahead homer in the 10th inning. He had been hitting .194 with two homers in his previous 12 games.(STATS, 7:32pm)
Sep 7, 2014
News: Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez plans to have Gattis in his lineup "as frequently as possible" during the closing month of the season, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports. Impact: Gattis will make his third straight start for the Braves on Sunday, and it sounds as if Gonzalez doesn't plan on letting up. The 28-year-old backstop is slugging .513 with 22 home runs this season, and the Braves certainly need that bat in the lineup if they intend on competing for one of the final NL playoff spots. It appears Gattis will start all three games of the upcoming series against the Nationals, and followed by a Thursday team day off, the catcher could get some "rest" by serving as the DH in the following series on the road against the Rangers.(RotoWire, )
Sep 7, 2014
News: Gattis went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored scored Saturday against Miami. Impact: Initially ruled a triple, Gattis hit a leadoff home run in the top of the 10th inning to give the Braves a one-run lead. Gattis swung on the first pitch and drove the ball deep into center field right above the yellow line. It proved to be the game winner as the Braves ended up winning 4-3.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 3, 2014
News: Gattis is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies. Impact: Contrary to a previous report, Gattis will not start the day game Wednesday despite manager Fredi Gonzalez indicating he would. Christian Bethancourt will start behind the plate in his place and bat seventh for the Braves.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 2, 2014
News: Gattis will start again at catcher for Wednesday's 12:10 p.m. ET game against the Phillies, assuming Tuesday's game isn't extremely long, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien reports. Impact: This is just a bookkeeping note that owners shouldn't have to worry about Gattis missing Wednesday's game as a result of the short turnaround after Tuesday night's affair.(RotoWire, )
