Astros | Evan Gattis to play OF early in spring

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 16:08:52 -0800

Houston Astros C/OF Evan Gattis is expected to get an early look this spring in left field, according to manager A.J. Hinch. Gattis is expected to see work at first base later in the spring. Gattis played 48 games in left field for the Atlanta Braves in 2013. "Seeing he's played (48) games in the outfield a couple of years ago, that's a faster comfort level for him," Hinch said. "He's been working hard this winter in the outfield -- he told me that. I just see that as a better fit early to get into camp."

Fantasy Tip: Gattis will be very valuable this year with multi-positional eligibility, but he mainly will be used as a power-hitting catching option for fantasy squads. The move to the American League and hitter-friendly Minute Maid Park only boosts Gattis' value. However, you'll need to plan around a weak contact rate and plenty of strikeouts.
