Astros' Evan Gattis: Needs at-bats
Gattis went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 5-2 win over the Mariners.
Gattis, who started at catcher for the first time since Aug. 29, has been limited over the second half of the season due to a wrist injury and a concussion. He's been held to just 19 games and 68 at-bats since the All-Star break. Brian McCann will catch most of the games over the final two weeks of the season, but manager A.J. Hinch acknowledged to Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle a need to prepare Gattis for the postseason. "It's tough when you go into (the postseason), you want to have some routine and some rhythm," Hinch said. "I want to get Gattis' bat going. He's a force at the plate. I've got to get him back into the lineup to get his bat going. He hasn't had a ton of at-bats."
