Braves | Evan Gattis to move around

Atlanta Braves C Evan Gattis, who is starting in left field Monday, May 6, will split time in the outfield, at catcher and at first base now that C Brian McCann (shoulder) is back from the disabled list. However, with McCann making $12 million this year and set to become a free agent after this season, it's believed that McCann won't be brought back in 2014 and Gattis will become the team's primary catcher. Gattis played left field in winter ball, which allows OF Justin Upton to move to right field at least while OF Jason Heyward (appendix) is out.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis should still be worth hanging onto in deep mixed leagues since he should be playing at least three or four times a week until Heyward returns. After that, playing time will likely be even harder to come by for Gattis. If less PT affects Gattis' performance, only then would it be reasonable to drop Gattis in deep mixed formats.
