Craig Kimbrel declares shoulder good after side session
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves closer Craig Kimbrel threw a 15-pitch side session Wednesday and declared his shoulder good to go, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

While Kimbrel is ready to return to his regular role, manager Fredi Gonzalez may elect to keep him out of Wednesday's game due to the cold weather. The closer owns a 1.59 ERA and 12:1 K:BB ratio along with five saves in 5 2/3 innings.

Performance not Evan Gattis' only concern
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The good news is Evan Gattis hit two home runs Monday, breaking out of a slump that had hitting around the Mendoza line over the first two weeks. The bad news is he was starting for just the fifth time in nine games.

That's not what I expected in his first year replacing Brian McCann as the Braves' primary catcher. I know Fredi Gonzalez said he wanted Gattis catching only 110 games -- so not catching about one-third of the time -- but I assumed that meant he'd be playing left field on some of his "off" days. His bat is too important to the lineup, after all. He was the Braves' cleanup hitter during the playoffs last year.

So far, though, he has yet to make an appearance in left field, which gives me serious doubts about his viability in shallower leagues. Now, that could always change. Maybe he'll go so hot that the Braves can't afford to remove him from the lineup. Or maybe they'll have to limit B.J. Upton's exposure again, creating more opportunities for Gattis in left. But clearly, neither scenario is what the Braves have in mind.

Gattis has monster power that makes him too valuable to consider dropping in Rotisserie leagues, but playing only one-third of the time won't do him much good in Head-to-Head leagues where every team starts just one catcher and Mike Zunino and Devin Mesoraco are crying out to be owned. I'm not changing my rankings just yet, but I might if this arrangment continues.
