Astros | Evan Gattis sitting out vs. Jay Birds

Thu, 14 May 2015 13:16:16 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, May 14. OF Preston Tucker is batting eighth as the designated hitter Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Gattis ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Thursday. The slugger is struggling mightily and is currently mired in a 3-for-27 slump with a .291 OPS. FantasyScore players will want to avoid Gattis until he shows signs of life at the dish, especially at his cap hit. Tucker ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is 1-for-10 to start his career, and he should be viewed as a low-priced flier for daily contests until he proves otherwise.

Astros | Evan Gattis continues homer binge

Sun, 03 May 2015 18:26:54 -0700

Houston Astros C/OF Evan Gattis went 2-for-4 with two home runs, four RBIs and three runs scored in a 7-6 win over the Seattle Mariners Sunday, May 3, and he has now homered in three straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has five home runs in his last six games and has 12 RBIs during the same stretch. If he is in Houston's lineup, he needs to be in your FantasyScore lineup.

Astros | Evan Gattis not in lineup Wednesday

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 10:57:29 -0700

Houston Astros C/OF Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 29. OF Colby Rasmus is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order, while OF Jake Marisnick returns to the lineup and gets a start in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Rasmus ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Marisnick ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) face somewhat of a tough matchup against San Diego Padres starter Andrew Cashner, who has been exceptional at home. However, it might be hard to ignore the hot sticks of both outfielders as they look to sweep the Padres Wednesday.

Astros | Evan Gattis on the board

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 21:04:31 -0700

Houston Astros C/OF Evan Gattis had his first hit Monday, April 13, since Sept. 6 of last year. It snapped a skid of going 0-for-37 with 17 strikeouts, including an 0-for-23 slump with 13 strikeouts this year.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis' ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) slow start to 2015 is concerning for his owners. Hopefully his hit Monday night can spark him, but a matchup against A's starter Kendall Graveman may be another tough matchup for Gattis at FantasyScore Tuesday.

Astros | Evan Gattis off to rough start

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 17:07:28 -0700

Houston Astros C/OF Evan Gattis went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in the loss to the Cleveland Indians Thursday, April 9, for the second straight game, which gives him eight strikeouts in eight straight plate appearances to start the 2015 season. Gattis is 0-for-11 in the first three games of the year. He entered the season with 178 strikeouts in 723 career at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) provides daily gamers with plenty of pop, but he also swings and misses frequently. It's still too early to be concerned if you own him in standard leagues, too. However, you might want to avoid him until he gets on the board in 2015.

Astros | Evan Gattis set to take batting practice

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 07:40:29 -0700

Houston Astros C/OF Evan Gattis (wrist) is feeling good and will take live batting practice Sunday, March 22, according to manager A.J. Hinch.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has high-end power potential at a weak fantasy position, and he has relocated to a hitter-friendly ballpark. Add that Gattis is projected to receive near everyday at-bats and not spend much time behind the plate, and there is a lot to like about him in the early middle rounds. This injury is considered minor, but continue to check back for updates and monitor his progress leading up to opening day.

Astros | Evan Gattis has no structural damage

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 09:51:31 -0700

Houston Astros C/OF Evan Gattis (wrist) took roughly 15 to 20 swings off a tee Friday, March 20, and said he was pain-free. He underwent an MRI exam Thursday, March 19, that showed no structural damage in his wrist.

Fantasy Tip: This is pretty good news for Gattis, who relies heavily on power as part of his game. If he doesn't have any setbacks moving forward, he should be able to progress to playing in some spring games soon. If healthy, Gattis' value heading into the 2015 is high, as his power should translate well to the American League and a hitter-friendly park. The fact that he won't be catching in Houston makes him more attractive, as well, as it should keep him healthier.

Astros | Evan Gattis to swing soon

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 11:06:33 -0700

Houston Astros C/OF Evan Gattis (wrist), who is day-to-day with pain in his right wrist, has yet to be cleared to swing a bat. However, manager A.J. Hinch is optimistic that Gattis will make progress this weekend. "He didn't make the trip. We're continuing to evaluate him every day. Wrists are sort of day-to-day when it comes to his activity level. I don't think he's planning on hitting today. We're hoping to introduce the tee and soft toss over the next day or two to see where his wrist tolerance is. For now, we're going to hold off for the day," Hinch said. Gattis has been able to do everything but hit in camp.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis' wrist issue is definitely worth monitoring, as wrist issues can often sap power, which is Gattis' best skill. Assuming he's ready for the season, Gattis is a rising fantasy commodity with a switch to the American League and a hitter-friendly park. The fact that he'll have catcher and outfield eligibility is a huge plus, too.

Astros | Evan Gattis not cleared to swing

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 13:27:58 -0700

Houston Astros C/OF Evan Gattis (wrist) hasn't been cleared to swing a bat and there is no timetable for his return as he deals with pain in his right wrist. Gattis was scratched from the spring game Sunday, March 15. However, he did some defensive work Monday, March 16, and plans to do more outfield drills Tuesday, March 17. "He's seen the doctor and we're going to keep evaluating him day to day," manager A.J. Hinch said. "He seems to be progressing nicely. We're going to ramp up his activities a little bit over the next couple of days, but he won't be doing a ton of activity. … We have the off-day (on Wednesday) and then we'll see how he feels on Thursday."

Fantasy Tip: It's a bit of concern for Gattis, especially since his game relies so heavily on his power stroke, which could be affected by wrist issues. Until we know more about the injury or that it's serious, though, his draft stock shouldn't be affected. Gattis is in line for serious production with his move to the AL in a hitter's park. It will also help that he's no longer catching.
