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

As a result, the Braves hadn’t been using him in spring training at the same pace most teams…

    Jan 26, 2014, 4:40 PM EST

    Ryan Doumit

    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.
