Some potentially bad news for the Braves: catcher Evan Gattis left last night’s game against the Phillies in the first inning with back spasms. He appeared to tweak something during his at-bat in the first inning and was replaced by Gerald Laird for the bottom half of the inning.

Gattis is listed as day-to-day. For what it’s worth, manager Fredi Gonzalez is optimistic:

“If he DLs, it’s going to be 15 days without him. And [head trainer Jeff Porter] doesn’t seem to think it’s going to be that long. So we’re not thinking about that move right now . . . he assured me that this could clear up in the next day or two.”

Of course Gonzalez is also optimistic that B.J. Upton is a leadoff hitter, so who knows.

Gattis is hitting .290/.342/.558 with 16 homers on the season.
