Astros | Evan Gattis goes deep again

Sun, 22 May 2016 16:55:55 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis hit his third home run in seven games since returning to the majors, finishing 2-for-4 with a solo shot in a 9-2 loss to the Texas Rangers Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: With catcher eligibility on the horizon and his power stroke coming around, Gattis could be worth picking up if he is available in your league, and he is a must-add in two-catcher formats.

Astros | Evan Gattis catching Tuesday

Thu, 19 May 2016 14:45:08 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis is in the starting lineup Thursday, May 19, and serving as the catcher for the first time this season, as C Jason Castro (rest) is getting the night off. He's batting sixth opposite Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has looked good at the plate since returning to the club earlier this week, so he'll draw a rare start at catcher to keep his bat in the lineup. While he has the difficult task of having to face Sale tonight, Gattis is 9-for-27 this year off lefties, making it possible he can keep it going.

Astros | Evan Gattis hitting cleanup in return

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:40:10 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis is serving as the designated hitter and is batting cleanup against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Tuesday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis will see plenty of playing time now that he's back in the bigs, seeing starts at DH, outfield and as the backup catcher. His elite power plays in all formats. Pick him up now if he was dropped by his previous owner and is available in your league. Get the jump on him in daily leagues, too, since others may not be wise to the fact that he's back in the majors.

Sun, 15 May 2016 17:42:15 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis will join the team Tuesday, May 17, after spending time in the minors to work as a catcher.

Astros | Evan Gattis takes a seat

Sat, 07 May 2016 13:39:58 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Tucker has a .213-3-4 line on the year, which doesn't present much upside against Nathan Karns today.

Astros | Evan Gattis sent to minors to catch

Fri, 06 May 2016 20:58:28 -0700

The Houston Astros optioned OF Evan Gattis to Class AA Corpus Christi Friday, May 6, to see more work at the catcher position. He has to spend 10 days with the Hooks, but he isn't likely to spend much more time than that. He said he is on board with the move and excited to catch again.

Fantasy Tip: The Astros need help behind Jason Castro, and fantasy owners will be glad to see Gattis become eligible behind the plate as well as in the outfield. Positional versatility like that is attractive from a fantasy perspective.

Astros | Evan Gattis back in cleanup spot

Thu, 05 May 2016 13:29:29 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis is batting cleanup Thursday, May 5, opposite Seattle Mariners SP Wade Miley.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis normally bats fifth when he's in the lineup, but with Colby Rasmus getting the night off, he gets bumped up into cleanup duty. While he's been a big disappointment thus far in 2016, Gattis has been fine when he stands in the box opposite a left-handed pitcher. In fact, he has more hits against lefties than he does righties, despite having registered nearly half as many at-bats versus southpaws. As a result, he could be a sneaky option for this evening.

Astros | Evan Gattis, Tyler White sitting

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:23:20 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis (rest) and 1B Tyler White (rest) are not starting Wednesday, May 4, against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes. SS Marwin Gonzalez and OF Preston Tucker are in their place, with Gonzalez playing first base and batting seventh, while Tucker is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: White will be on the bench for the second time in three nights, though it's hard to argue that decision considering he's a putrid 2-for-35 over his last 10 ballgames. Gattis is also slumping, having not recorded a hit in his last 11 at-bats. Daily owners can do better than Gonzalez and Tucker from Wednesday's full 15-game slate.

Astros | Evan Gattis takes a seat

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:05:29 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. OF Preston Tucker is serving as the designated hitter and is batting sixth against Minnesota Twins SP Alex Meyer.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming the rest of the roster is healthy, Tucker and Gattis are basically platooning at DH for Houston. Both feature plenty of power, with Gattis having more of it. Tucker hit his third homer of the year last night but has a .200 average on the year. Most won't be looking to him in daily games, so he could make for a sleeper contrarian pick tonight.

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 05:10:55 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis went 2-for-4 with one home run and two RBI against the Oakland Athletics Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has been on a bit of a hot streak recently with seven hits and six RBI over the last four games. Gattis could be a solid option in daily fantasy leagues and some mixed leagues while he is producing at the plate.
