Braves | Evan Gattis progresses

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 08:10:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Evan Gattis (back) warmed up a pitcher between innings Tuesday, July 8. On Wednesday, July 9, he performed running and throwing activities while also running nearly a mile without any problems, according to Gattis. There's no timetable for his return, but manager Fredi Gonzalez said Gattis may be ready for a minoir league rehab assignment immediately following the All-Star break.

Braves | Evan Gattis update

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 15:18:49 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Evan Gattis (back) is going to remain the team's primary catcher when he returns, and C Christian Bethancourt will return to Triple-A Gwinnett, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez. Gonzalez said he does not know when Gattis will return from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt has hit well in his limited at-bats, but he is not worth stashing in NL-only leagues when he is demoted. Gattis is likely two weeks away, at least.

Braves | Evan Gattis unlikely to return following All-Star break

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 13:45:36 -0700

Braves | Mike Minor struggling against left-handed batters

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 12:19:39 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor is allowing a .375 opponents batting average to left-handed batters this season. It is the third highest mark in the major leagues. Minor is winless in his last eight starts and has allowed opponents to hit .311 against him during that span.

Fantasy Tip: Consider benching Minor until he turns his season around. He was among the league's best pitchers from June 2012 to September 2013, so the potential to rebound is there.
