Braves | Evan Gattis makes roster

Atlanta Braves C Evan Gattis was told by manager Fredi Gonalez that he has made the Opening Day roster. Gattis will serve as the backup catcher until C Brian McCann (shoulder) is able to return.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis is expected to serve as the backup initially, but it is possible he could split time with C Gerald Laird or even make more starts depending. Either way, he should be considered a low-end No. 2 catcher in NL-only leagues for now. If he hits well early on, that might change. When McCann is ready to return, Gattis still might be kept around as a third catcher and reserve left fielder.
