Evan Gattis hasn’t played a full game for the Braves since September 7 because of strep throat and, more recently, a kidney stone. In that time, Atlanta has lost 12-of-14 games and been completely eliminated from postseason contention. But there will be no early shutdown for the 28-year-old slugging catcher.

A bases-loaded walk helped the Tigers win a game. A walkoff plunking gave the Cardinals the win. And the crew in Chicago couldn’t get a tarp on the field. Can anyone around here play this game anymore?

The Braves get their lefty and a venerable super sub. The Cubs get an interesting catching prospect.

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.
