Evan Gattis leaves game with back injury
Braves catcher Evan Gattis was forced to exit Friday's game in Philadelphia due to spasms in his back.
Braves catcher Evan Gattis left Friday night's game against Philadelphia with a right rhomboid spasm, per the club. His status is considered day to day, so it shouldn't be considered anything serious.
A rhomboid muscle is located in the upper-middle back area, so one can imagine how that would affect any throwing or swinging motion Gattis would need to make.
Gattis, 27, is hitting .290/.342/.558 with 16 homers and 39 RBI this season. He's got a good shot to make the NL All-Star team, though Yadier Molina has a comfortable lead in the voting and Jonathan Lucroy should be in line before Gattis at the top backup.
