Gattis went 2-for-3 with a pair of homers, two runs and four RBI Saturday against the Angels. Gattis got the Astros on the board with a three-run blast in the second inning before launching his 15th homer of the campaign to add some insurance, helping lead the team to a home win. He's now hit safely in five of his last six games, and he slashing .224/.289/.451 on the season.
Gattis (hand) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Astros, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. He was forced to miss one start due a hand contusion but Gattis will step back in Saturday to face right-hander Jered Weaver. Gattis has failed to hit or get on base at a palatable clip so far this season, but his fantasy value has been salvaged to a significant extent by his power production and return to catcher eligibility.
Gattis (hand) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Angels, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. Gattis left Wednesday's contest with the A's in the seventh inning due to a hand contusion, and he will get another day of rest Friday after the team got Thursday's off. In his place, Preston Tucker will take over the designated hitter's duties Friday.
Gattis (hand) left Wednesday's game against the A's in the seventh inning due to a hand injury, Julie Morales of ROOT Sports reports. Gattis had his right hand wrapped up in the dugout after exiting the game Wednesday. It appears to be a minor injury as he stayed in the dugout with the team after pinch-hitter Danny Worth replaced him as the designated hitter. Gattis was also seen first bumping teammates with his right hand, which is never a bad sign, and he will get some extra rest with the team having Thursday off before hosting the Angels on Friday.
Gattis is not in Saturday's lineup, the Houston Chronicle's Angel Verdejo reports. His starts at DH should be trending down over the rest of the season, Yulieski Gurriel and Alex Bregman both figure to join the club in the coming weeks, which will mean A.J. Reed, Luis Valbuena and Gurriel will start getting more starts at DH. Gattis should still get a couple starts at catcher each week, but his playing time is headed in the wrong direction.
