Fri, 22 Mar 2013 15:02:15 -0700
Atlanta Braves C Evan Gattis hit two home runs Friday, March 22, and is hitting .381 (18-for-46) with five doubles, four home runs and 13 RBIs this spring. He leads the team in slugging percentage (.761) and OPS (1.169). He worked on taking some of the weight off his back leg and closer to the center of his body this week. Gattis is now expected to make the roster with C Brian McCann (shoulder) starting on the disabled list. He may end up starting more than once or twice a week as he splits time with C Gerald Laird.
