2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

An absolutely torrid spring earned Gattis a spot on the Braves' 2013 Opening Day roster, and he proceeded to hit .243/.291/.480 with 21 home runs and 65 RBI in 105 games as a 26-year-old rookie. It was improbable, to say the least, as he was just a few years removed from being completely out of baseball, working such jobs as a ski lift operator and a janitor, and he had logged just 207 at-bats above the High-A level. Gattis appears here to stay, however, because while he drew just 21 walks in 354 at-bats and posted a .678 OPS after the All-Star break, the power seems to be for real (.237 ISO), and he hit above .240 despite a .258 BABIP. Furthermore, he at least lessened concerns about his defense behind the plate and gained the confidence of his pitching staff in his game-calling abilities, while also proving to be at least a somewhat capable left fielder (four errors in 47 regular-season starts). The Braves let Brian McCann depart as a free agent, putting Gattis in line to open 2014 as the team's primary catcher and likely cleanup hitter, while he may see occasional starts in the outfield when he needs a break from catching duties. That said, Gattis will likely have his ups and downs again in his second season at the major league level, and he could eventually lose starts to the more athletically-gifted Christian Bethancourt, if he proves to be a liability behind the plate.

2013

It doesn't look like the Braves have figured out exactly what they want to do with Gattis yet. He has split time between catcher and outfield in his minor league career while also playing a handful of games at first base and DH. Certainly, the Braves would like to figure out a way to move Gattis' bat along quickest. Though he has been in the minors for just three seasons, Gattis is already 26 years old and lost part of his season to a wrist injury in 2012. His batting average took a dip in his first taste of Double-A, but his walk rate and power numbers still looked good. If he can stick at catcher, and that may be a big if, Gattis may very well have usurped Christian Bethancourt as the Braves' top catching prospect in the short term. The bat is for real, and considering his age he should be in Triple-A at some point during the 2013 season.
