News: Gattis provided all the offense for the Braves on Monday, going 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI. Impact: The powerful backstop was the only Brave to figure out the surprisingly successful Jason Lane with his seventh-inning home run. He then singled in an insurance run in the eighth inning. Gattis now has 17 home runs this season and is hitting .292.(RotoWire, )

Wed. July 23, 2014
News: Gattis is not in the lineup Wednesday vs. the Marlins. Impact: The Braves will understandably give Gattis a rest after he started two games in a row immediately upon returning from the disabled list Monday. Though a variety of ailments have limited him to 65 games this season, he's been one of the most productive fantasy catchers on a per-game basis, racking up 16 homers and 39 RBI to go along with a .286 average in 231 at-bats.(RotoWire, )
Mon. July 21, 2014
News: Gattis will start at catcher and bat sixth in the order Monday against the Marlins. Impact: Gattis was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, and the Braves will waste no time getting him into the starting lineup. They may ease him back into action at first, but look for Gattis to be the full-time catcher moving forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Gattis (back) will be activated from the 15-day DL prior to Monday's game against the Marlins. Impact: Gattis was fully expected to be activated Monday, so the move comes as no surprise. He'll return to full-time catching duties, as Christian Bethancourt was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move. Gerald Laird will continue to serve as Gattis' primary backup.(RotoWire, )
July 20, 2014
News: Gattis (back) is expected to come off the DL and start Monday's game, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien reports. Impact: Look for him to get activated from the 15-day DL prior to Monday's contest, which will make him a must-start in weekly leagues. He has been sidelined since June 28 with a back injury, but he is still tied with Devin Mesoraco for the MLB lead in homers by a catcher with 16.(RotoWire, )

News: Gattis (back) caught five innings without incident in Friday's rehab game with Triple-A Gwinnett, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Gattis is expected to play two more rehab games, with the hope that he'll be activated from the disabled list for Monday's contest against the Marlins. According to Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez, the final decision will likely be made Sunday afternoon.(RotoWire, )
Fri. July 18, 2014
News: Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said he is hopeful Gattis (back) will be able to return Monday against the Marlins, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: The plan is for Gattis to remain on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett through the weekend, and if all goes well, he could be back for Monday's series opener against Miami. Gonzalez said previously that Christian Bethancourt will likely head back down upon Gattis' activation.(RotoWire, )

News: Gattis (back) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in his first rehab game with Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, but he made it through the game pain-free, MLB.com reports. Impact: Gattis admitted that it will take a little while to get his timing back after a nearly three-week layoff, but the 27-year-old expressed encouragement with how he felt. The bulging thoracic disk did not present any problems while swinging, and he added that neither crouching behind the dish nor throwing bothered his back. He wasn't sure if he would catch or DH in his next rehab game, but regardless, he appears on track to return to the Braves at some point next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Gattis (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Impact: Gattis made it through another round of batting practice with Low-A Rome on Wednesday and thus cleared the final hurdle necessary to return to active competition. The 27-year-old was cleared to swing a bat just a week ago, but the decision to send him to Gwinnett suggests his rehab stint may be a relatively short one, with a return to the Braves early next week within the realm of possibility.(RotoWire, )
