According to Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle, Evan Gattis is expected to function as the Astros' primary designated hitter in 2018.

The 31-year-old slugger only appeared in 84 games for the Astros in 2017, appearing in 49 games behind the plate and one at first base, while acting as the DH the rest of the time. With catcher eligibility in all fantasy leagues heading into 2018, the more time that he spends in the lineup, the better it will be for his fantasy value.

Evan Gattis is in the designated hitter spot and batting seventh for the Astros in Friday's World Series Game 3 against the Dodgers.

Gattis was on the bench for Games 1 and 2 in Los Angeles with the DH spot not available, but he's in there against Yu Darvish for Game 3. The Astros' full lineup is as follows: George Springer CF, Alex Bregman 3B, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Josh Reddick RF, Gattis DH, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Brian McCann C.

Evan Gattis hit a solo home run, which turned out to be the game-winning run, in Saturday's Game 7 victory over the Yankees in the American League Championship Series.

Gattis broke a scoreless tie in the fourth inning when he yanked a CC Sabathia offering to left-center. It was a good time for his first homer of the postseason, and his first hit of the series. He's hit .250/.360/.500 in seven playoff games to date, and could be in for a bigger workload in the next round with the Dodgers boasting so many lefties.

Evan Gattis is starting in the designated hitter spot and batting eighth for the Astros in ALCS Game 6 on Friday versus the Yankees.

Carlos Beltran has started four of the five games so far this series in the DH spot, but it will be Gattis in there Friday against right-hander Luis Severino. The Astros' full lineup looks like this: George Springer CF, Josh Reddick RF, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Alex Bregman 3B, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Gattis DH, Brian McCann C.

Evan Gattis is expected to start for the Astros behind the plate for Game 3 of the ALCS.

Brian McCann has started the first two games of the series, with Gattis expected to catch for Charlie Morton in Game 3. Gattis excels against left-handed pitching and would be a nice fit against Yankees' southpaw C.C. Sabathia.

Evan Gattis will start at designated hitter for Game 4 of the ALDS against the Red Sox on Monday.

The weather still warrants watching, but Gattis is slated to get the nod over Carlos Beltran at DH. The full lineup for Houston as they attempt to advance to the ALCS: George Springer CF, Josh Reddick RF, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Alex Bregman 3B, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Gattis DH, Brian McCann C. Charlie Morton will start for Houston while Rick Porcello will get the ball for Boston.

Evan Gattis is starting at designated hitter and batting fifth for the Astros in Friday's ALDS Game 2 versus the Red Sox.

Boston is throwing another lefty (Drew Pomeranz), so the Astros will stick with the exact same lineup that produced eight runs and a victory in Game 1. Gattis doubled twice, drew a walk and scored a pair of runs in Thursday's win. The Astros' full lineup is as follows: George Springer CF, Alex Bregman 3B, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Gattis DH, Josh Reddick RF, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Brian McCann C.

Evan Gattis went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Mariners on Friday.

He singled to drive in Carlos Correa in the first inning and doubled later in the game. The veteran catcher is good with the bat but doesn't get enough playing time to be of much use in fantasy leagues. He has a .267 batting average with 11 home runs and 46 RBI in 286 plate appearances.
