Gattis to play at 1B, DH for Astros; Bad news for Singleton, Carter?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With the signing of Colby Rasmus, the Astros have an even more crowded outfield, but it also means Houston won't have to lean on Evan Gattis to play primarly in left field.

In fact, Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow expects Gattis to occasionally play in left field, but to primarily play at first base and DH. Although, that doesn't bode well for playing time for Jon Singleton and Chris Carter.

“We don’t know what Gattis is going to look like in left field,” Luhnow said, per the Houston Chronicle. “If he’s good out there or adequate, I’m sure he’ll get some at-bats out there. Is he going to be our everyday left fielder? I can’t imagine that happening with the guys that we have, but we want to have that bat in the lineup.

“Guys that have options are going to have to prove to us that they belong in the big leagues. I don’t think it’s just Singleton. Like I said, we’ve got multiple options at every position on the diamond now. So, you know, players may not be playing their preferred position -- that puzzle will come together in spring training. We’re only guessing to try to figure it out right now.”

New acquisition Evan Gattis unsure of where he will play for Astros
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

New Astros acquisition Evan Gattis could be the team's primary left fielder following his acquisition from the Braves. In fact, he is listed as the starter in left field on the depth chart on the team's official website.

However, Gattis sounded Thursday as though he wasn't sure if he would see most of his playing time in left field. Gattis has spent most of his MLB career at catcher, but Jason Castro is currently embedded as the Astros' starting catcher.

“It’s really too early," Gattis told MLB.com. "We’ll see how it shakes out and see where our pieces end up at the end of spring. I think it’s too early to say what I’ll be playing more of. I’m not really worried bout positioning and stuff like that right now. I’m just ready to get after it, you know? I was prepared to go play left field with the Braves situation, too, so it’s not like anything will really change on my end.”

Braves/Astros announce Evan Gattis deal
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Braves have traded catcher/outfielder Evan Gattis and pitcher James Hoyt to the Astros for three prospects, the teams announced. CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirmed the deal early on Wednesday. The deal was initially reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The 28-year-old Gattis is coming off a season in which he hit .263/.317/.493 over 369 at-bats. Gattis dealt with back issues during the season, causing him to miss time. Gattis is under team control through the 2018 season. It's unclear where Gattis will play with his new club.

Hoyt, 27, posted a 3.17 ERA over two levels of the minors last year. 

In return, the Braves will receive pitchers Mike Foltynewicz and Andrew Thurman , and third baseman Rio Ruiz

Foltynewicz was rated as the Astros third-best prospect this year according to Baseball America. The 23-year-old pitched in 18 games with Houston last year, posting a 5.30 ERA.

Thurman, 23, posted a 5.38 ERA at Class A last year. The 20-year-old Ruiz .293/.387/.436 over 516 at-bats in High A.

Braves agree to trade Evan Gattis to Astros
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Braves have agreed to deal catcher/outfielder Evan Gattis and pitcher James Hoyt to the Astros for three minor-league prospects, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has confirmed. The deal was initially reported by David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Those minor-leaguers include right-hander Mike Foltynewicz, third baseman Rio Ruiz and right-hander Andrew Thurman, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Foltynewicz would be a rotation candidate for this upcoming season, Sherman notes. Both sides have agreed to the players involved in the deal, but has not been finalized. Gattis was spotted in Houston on Wednesday undergoing a physical exam in anticipation of a possible trade.

Gattis hit .263/.317/.493 over 369 at-bats, but was hindered by a back injury over the second half of the year. The trade would give Houston three right-handed power hitters in Gattis, George Springer and Chris Carter. Gattis won't be a free-agent until 2019.

The deal is currently pending physicals.

Report: Braves' Evan Gattis in Houston for a physical exam
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Braves are engaged with three teams in trade negotiations for catcher/outfielder Evan Gattis, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today on Wednesday. The Astros, Rangers and Royals have been among the clubs that have shown interest this winter, per MLB.com.

According to a source close to Gattis, he was in Houston on Wednesday undergoing a physical exam in anticipation of a possible deal. A rival executive told Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports that a trade agreement must be in place and the commissioner’s office must be notified before a team consents to a player having a physical. He hit .263/.317/.493 over 369 at-bats, but was hindered by a back injury over the second half of the year. Gattis won't be a free-agent until 2019.
