He’s day-to-day. At least that’s what the Braves hope.

If you throw at dudes on purpose, you’re gonna get in trouble for it.

He’s a catcher. And Evan Gattis’ bat is essential. So that would make Gattis an outfielder. At least in name.

Six shutouts on Sunday afternoon. So don’t worry if you think you wasted your day because 20% of all major league teams didn’t get much done yesterday either.

If a pitcher has a foreign substance on his hand and no one is there to complain about it, does it still raise a stink?

Giancarlo Stanton did what he does best against the Padres on Friday night.

David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Braves catcher Evan Gattis had off-season knee surgery. In October, Gattis had a “dime-sized” bone chip removed from his right knee, which had been bothering him since 2006. As a result, the Braves hadn’t been using him in spring training at the same pace most teams…

LAKE BUENA VISTA — I’ve done a good job so far today not cheering in the press box. Kris Medlen struck a dude out looking. Evan Gattis just thew out a would-be base stealer. Both of those things are usually worth at least a fist-pump from me when watching a game but I’ve been totally…

Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com is reporting that the Braves have signed Cuban catcher Yenier Bello to a minor league deal. Sanchez adds that the deal includes a signing bonus and an invitation to spring training. The Braves have a surplus of catching with Evan Gattis, Gerald Laird, Christian Bethancourt, and even Ryan Doumit. As a…

Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season. Next up: The Atlanta Braves. The Big Question: Can the Braves follow up on a 96-win season and defend their NL East…

The Braves acquired Ryan Doumit in a trade with the Twins last month, expecting him to contribute mostly off the bench as a pinch-hitter. Doumit had suffered a concussion in August. While he made a few starts behind the dish upon his return in mid-August, he contributed only as a pinch-hitter, DH, and occasional outfielder…

This is pretty unexpected: Source: Atlanta finalizing deal to acquire catcher/outfielder Ryan Doumit from Minnesota. — Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) December 18, 2013 Rosenthal reports that the Braves are sending back lefty Sean Gilmartin. Doumit, a catcher and outfielder who does neither of those things at all well but who has been known to hit a little,…

Last week, we learned that some in the business think long time Braves catcher Brian McCann could earn as much as $100 million in free agency this off-season. That could come to fruition as many of the teams that will be in hot pursuit of McCann’s services rank among baseball’s richest teams. Jon Heyman of…

The Dodgers stormed out to an early 2-0 lead against Freddy Garcia behind a pair of solo homers from Carl Crawford, but the Braves are fighting back against Clayton Kershaw. With an assist from the Dodgers’ defense, anyway. After Freddie Freeman singled to lead off the top of the fourth inning, Adrian Gonzalez made a…

It was a close back-and-forth affair between the Braves and Dodgers for the first three and a half innings in Game 3 of the NLDS in Los Angeles tonight. The game was tied at four-all, then the Dodger offense woke up, building a lead as large as nine runs entering the bottom of the ninth.…

The Braves got the offense going early. Outfielder Justin Upton doubled with one out in the top of the first inning against Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu. Evan Gattis promptly knocked him in with a line drive single to center, putting the Braves up 1-0. After getting ahead in the count 0-2 to Brian McCann, Ryu…

We knew going into the playoffs that the Braves’ biggest strength was their pitching and it shone through tonight against the Dodgers. Starter Mike Minor held the Dodgers to one run over six and one-third innings of work on eight hits and a walk while striking out five. The Dodgers’ lone run against him came…

The Braves got on the board against Dodgers starter Zack Greinke thanks to their handy shortstop. Evan Gattis, the goat of last night’s game, reached on a single to left, then advanced to second on a ground out. With two outs, shortstop Andrelton Simmons laced a double to right field, sailing over Yasiel Puig‘s head.…
