Evan Gattis went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI as an Astros split-squad topped the Red Sox 6-2 on Friday.
Gattis came down with a sore shoulder last month and was limited to DH duties at the beginning of the spring, but he's back catching now. He still hasn't done a lot at the plate; he's batting .241 and the double today was his first extra-base hit in 29 at-bats. The plan is for Gattis to DH rather frequently and back up Brian McCann behind the plate this year. Mar 17 - 5:50 PM

It was expected to happen on either Thursday or Friday, but now we know the official plan. Gattis has been limited to designated hitter duties so far in the Grapefruit League due to some minor inflammation in his right shoulder, but he should be fine for the start of the season.

Evan Gattis (shoulder) is expected to catch his first game of the spring later this week.

It'll either happen Thursday or Friday. Gattis has been limited to DH duties so far in the Grapefruit League due to some minor inflammation in his right shoulder. He should be 100 percent for the opening of the 2017 regular season.
Mar 6 - 9:51 AM

Evan Gattis (shoulder) is aiming to catch in Grapefruit League games by March 8-10.

Gattis has been limited to designated hitter duties thus far in spring training due to some inflammation in his right shoulder. He's been increasing his throwing of late and also blocking balls behind the plate. Gattis will be fine come Opening Day as long as he doesn't suffer a setback.
Mar 3 - 9:54 AM

Evan Gattis (shoulder) played catch from up to 75 feet on Sunday.

He also caught a bullpen session but did not throw the ball back to the pitcher. Gattis was given an anti-inflammatory shot last Wednesday due to soreness in his right shoulder, but he's feeling better. "It felt better than it did yesterday, which is a good sign," Gattis said after throwing on Sunday. "Just kind of keep taking these small victories and not try to get away with whatever we can. Take it slow. I'm optimistic."
Feb 19 - 12:26 PM

Evan Gattis (shoulder) is scheduled to do catching drills on Saturday, including throwing the ball back to the pitcher.

Gattis received an anti-inflammatory injection in his shoulder on Wednesday to combat some minor soreness. It doesn't sound as though the injury is anything to worry about, but fantasy owners should keep an eye on the situation throughout the spring.
Feb 18 - 10:48 AM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Evan Gattis (shoulder) won't do any hitting or throwing "for a couple days."

Gattis received an anti-inflammatory injection on Wednesday after complaining of some minor shoulder soreness. The early part of the spring can be brutal on some catchers -- especially catchers like Gattis who don't actually catch that often. He should be fine.

Evan Gattis received an anti-inflammatory injection in his right shoulder on Wednesday.

Gattis skipped catching a bullpen session on Wednesday in order to get the injection, but he doesn't think it's anything serious. He should be fine in the next few days.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe hears that the Astros would listen to offers for Evan Gattis.

The Astros acquired Brian McCann earlier this offseason and also reportedly have a deal in place for Carlos Beltran, so it's not a surprise that they're willing to listen on Gattis. The slugger hit 32 home runs last season, although he sported a .319 on-base percentage and is very much an all-or-nothing hitter. Gattis will make $5.2 million in 2017 and will be arbitration-eligible for a final time next winter.

Astros exercised C/DH Evan Gattis' $5.2 million option for 2017.

Although he batted only .251 with a .319 on-base percentage this season, Gattis slugged a career-high 32 home runs while driving in 72 runs. He caught a bunch in 2016 after not doing it at all in 2015 and should continue to serve in a catcher/designated hitter hybrid role in 2017.

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros starting lineup on Friday.

It's just a day of rest for the White Bear, who has been doing a lot of work behind the plate recently. Expect to see him at some point on Friday as a pinch hitter and and his return to the lineup on Saturday.

Evan Gattis swatted a pair of home runs in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the A's.

Gattis rocked a two-run home run in the sixth inning to bump the Astros to a 4-1 lead, then came back around to bash a solo shot in the eighth. For the season, the 30-year-old slugger is slashing .249/.318/.510 with 30 homers and 67 RBI over 418 at-bats. He has homered five times in his last 10 games and has already notched a career-high for long balls.

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros starting lineup for Saturday's matchup against the Cubs.

It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the White Bear. Jason Castro will work behind the plate for the Astros while Jose Altuve functions as the club's designated hitter.

Evan Gattis hit his 22nd home run of the year in Tuesday's win over the A's.

Gattis hit the solo blast off A's starter Kendall Graveman in the seventh inning. It was his only hit in three at-bats. It's shaping up to be another typical year-end stat line for the 30-year-old, as his 22 homers and 55 RBI are paired with a .246/.312/.484 line in 101 games. His catcher eligibility makes it all worth it, though.

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off. The Astros have Jason Castro catching and Yulieski Gurriel in the designated hitter spot.
