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. Dec 4 - 10:52 AM

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.
Nov 4 - 2:30 PM

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.
Sep 30 - 7:08 PM

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.
Sep 21 - 7:11 PM

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.
Sep 10 - 10:40 AM

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.
Aug 30 - 11:25 PM

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.
Aug 28 - 11:23 AM

Evan Gattis slugged a walk-off solo homer in Friday’s 5-4 victory over the Rays.

Carlos Correa led off the bottom of the ninth with a game-tying solo homer off Alex Colome and Gattis followed him with a long home run which hit the train behind the Crawford Boxes in left field. The 30-year-old went 2-for-4 with two RBI on the evening. He has gone deep in back-to-back games and now sits at 21 homers on the year.
Aug 27 - 1:09 AM

Evan Gattis went 4-for-5 in Friday’s win over the Blue Jays.

Gattis had a pair of doubles and a pair of singles. It was his second four-hit game of the season and the fourth of his career. He’s now batting .238/.298/.463 overall.
Aug 12 - 10:06 PM

Evan Gattis went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Gattis launched a three-run shot off Twins starter Tommy Milone in the second inning. It was his 18th homer of the year, giving him 47 RBI and 33 runs scored. The catcher is batting .229/.291/.451 through 86 games overall.
Aug 11 - 10:11 PM

Evan Gattis went 3-for-4 with three singles in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

Gattis and George Springer combined to go 5-for-7 on the afternoon. The rest of the team? 2-for-26. With the three hits, Gattis bumped his batting average to .226. His overall slash-line for the season stands at .226/.292/.462. While the average and OBP are less-than-desirable for fantasy purposes, Gattis has also cracked 17 homers and driven in 42 runs over 266 at-bats. The counting production is nice, at least.
Jul 31 - 4:29 PM

Evan Gattis homered twice and drove in four runs as the Astros beat the Angels 7-2 on Saturday.

Gattis terrorized Angels starter Jered Weaver, blasting a three-run shot in the second inning before tacking on a solo dinger in the fourth. The homers were his 14th and 15th of the year, giving him 40 RBI. That power has kept him fantasy relevant, but El Oso Blanco is hitting just .224/.289/.451 on the year.
Jul 23 - 10:36 PM

Evan Gattis (hand) is not in the Astros' lineup Friday.

Gattis left Wednesday's game against the A's due to a right hand contusion and it's still swollen. He'll take some swings and could be available off the bench Friday. Jason Castro is at catcher and Preston Tucker is in the designated hitter spot.
Jul 22 - 4:32 PM

Evan Gattis left Wednesday's game against the A's due to a right hand contusion.

Gattis is being listed as day-to-day. He was lifted in the seventh inning with the injury, but remained in the clubhouse. With the Astros off on Thursday, the slugger could potentially return to the lineup without missing a game when they face off with the Angels on Friday.
Jul 20 - 8:19 PM

Evan Gattis is not in Monday's lineup against the Athletics.

A.J. Reed will serve as the designated hitter against right-hander Kendall Graveman and Jason Castro is behind the plate. Gattis is batting just .147 with one home run and a .518 OPS this month. His at-bats could be at risk if or when Alex Bregman and/or Yulieski Gourriel get the call.
