News: Gattis hit his 20th homer Sunday while going 2-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch against the Reds. Impact: Gattis tied Devin Mesoraco among full-time catchers for the most homers at the position this season (Carlos Santana has 21 homers, but he's only caught 11 times this season). Given the attrition at the position, Gattis could be a top-five catcher next year.(RotoWire, )
