Evan Gattis plated two runs Wednesday in the Astros’ win over the Athletics.

He drove in Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa on a sixth-inning single off left-hander Sean Manaea. That ended up being his only hit of the night as the Astros were able to claim victory in a low-scoring affair. Gattis led Houston with 32 homers a year ago but only has four to his credit this season.
Jun 22 - 1:20 AM

Evan Gattis finished 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a run scored in Monday's 4-1 win in Oakland.

Gattis had been struggling at the plate, entering just 4-for-26 to drop his average from .287 to .264 since his four-hit performance on May 31. Perhaps this multi-hit effort will jump-start his offense again.

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' lineup Saturday against the Red Sox.

He's been alternating games with Brian McCann, who is back behind the plate for the middle game of Houston's three-game set with Boston. Gattis has had a quiet month, batting just .154 in 26 June at-bats.

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' lineup Thursday against the Tigers.

Gattis could use a rest after starting four of the last five games behind the plate. Juan Centeno will catch for Mike Fiers in Thursday's series finale. Gattis will go back to splitting catching duties with Brian McCann (concussion) when he returns from the disabled list this weekend.

Evan Gattis went 2-for-5 with two RBI singles in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Gattis knocked in his first run with an RBI single off Luis Severino in the third inning, then came through once more with another RBI knock (this one off Adam Warren) in the seventh inning. The veteran backstop is working to a .288/.363/.463 triple-slash with three homers and 18 RBI over the course of 80 at-bats.
May 14 - 5:37 PM

Evan Gattis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Angels.

Gattis did not record a hit in either of his first two at-bats, but got himself going with a solo home run against Matt Shoemaker to lead off the seventh inning. The veteran backstop has cracked three home runs through the first month-plus of the season. In addition, he is slashing a sharp .304/.372/.507 and has driven in 16 runs over the course of 21 games played. With Sunday's home run, he has a nine-game hitting streak going.
May 7 - 6:51 PM

Evan Gattis went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI in a loss to the Rays on Saturday.

The home run off Blake Snell was the first round-tripper of the season for Gattis. He added a second RBI on a ground-out in the sixth inning. He has hit well this season in part-time duty despite the lack of power. He owns a .294 batting average with one homer and seven RBI in 34 at-bats.
Apr 22 - 9:27 PM

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' lineup Friday.

Gattis has been playing more lately with five starts in his last six games going into Friday, but he'll sit out this one. Brian McCann is catching and Carlos Beltran is in the designated hitter spot.
Apr 21 - 2:45 PM

Evan Gattis drew a bases loaded walk-off walk from Matt Strahm in the bottom of the 12th inning to propel the Astros to a 5-4 win over the Royals on Sunday.

In order for Gattis to even have a chance to draw the game-winning walk, it required a beautiful at-bat from Brian McCann. McCann tangoed with Strahm for a hearty 10 pitches and fouled off four straight before finally drawing ball four. Gattis proceeded to put in a six-pitch at-bat, himself, before ending the game with his trot to first.
Apr 9 - 6:26 PM

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' lineup for Thursday's game against the Mariners.

Gattis is getting a breather after catching 13 innings in Wednesday night's victory. Brian McCann will start behind the plate and bat seventh against Mariners lefty Ariel Miranda. McCann is catching for Joe Musgrove.
Apr 6 - 4:38 PM

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

Evan Gattis (shoulder) will catch his first game of the spring on Friday.

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.
Mar 8 - 9:55 AM

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.
