Astros | Evan Gattis catching Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:23:46 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis is starting behind the plate against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy Sunday, June 26. C Jason Castro is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Although Gattis is batting just .176 during the month of June, he has homered six times and driven in 16 runs over 74 at-bats. He's worth using in DFS lineups if you don't mind the low batting average and high strikeout totals.

Astros | Evan Gattis sitting vs. the Angels

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 08:12:26 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 22. C Jason Castro is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has delivered in the counting stats with 23 runs, 11 home runs and 29 RBI through just 52 games, and while his .212 batting average leaves a lot to be desired, those numbers are excellent from the catcher slot. He should be owned and started in all formats where he can be utilized as a backstop. Castro is a weak option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues, but he's a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Wednesday.

Astros | Evan Gattis homers in victory

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 14:12:37 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis hit his 11th home run of the year Sunday, June 19, in a 6-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis was recently in an 0-for-15 slump at the plate but is showing signs of breaking out. Still, with a .207 average through Saturday, Gattis may be best played in DFS contests or in deeper mixed and AL leagues.

Astros | Colby Rasmus, Jason Castro sitting out

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 09:21:45 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus and C Jason Castro are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Sunday, June 19. 2B Jose Altuve will serve as the designated hitter, while C Evan Gattis will start at catcher. INF Danny Worth will start at second base and is batting sixth. OF Jake Marisnick will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Worth and Marisnick have not done much at the plate this season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues. Altuve is a must-start option in all leagues, while Gattis is not a great option at this point because he is on a cold streak.

Astros | No Evan Gattis vs. Cards

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 13:44:27 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 15. C Jason Castro is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has been cutting into Castro's start behind the plate, but Gattis is also serving as the designated hitter frequently, which hasn't completely eliminated Castro's playing time. Sub out Gattis where you can in seasonal leagues and view Castro as a low-end flier in daily contests against Wainwright Wednesday.

Astros | Evan Gattis to start at catcher

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 13:58:40 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis will start at catcher against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Tuesday, June 14, and is batting fifth in the lineup because the team does not have the designated hitter available. C Jason Castro will on the bench for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has struggled at the plate recently and has only one hit in his last 22 at-bats. He is still a solid option because of his power potential and is hitting .291 with five home runs against left-handed pitchers. Owners in daily fantasy leagues can consider using him as their catcher.

Astros | Evan Gattis catching 10th game

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 08:48:15 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis, who is hitting cleanup Thursday, June 9, is in the lineup for the 10th time at catcher this season.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis catching his 10th game would open up catcher eligibility in a lot of leagues and exponentially improve his fantasy stock. He hasn't set the world on fire with a .230-9-23 line, but he immediately becomes an upper-middle catching option if he snags eligibility in your league. He's a solid DFS target today against lefty Martin Perez.

Astros | Jason Castro, Luis Valbuena sitting

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:49:23 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro and 3B Luis Valbuena are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Cole Hamels Tuesday, June 7. C Evan Gattis is catching and is hitting cleanup, while INF Marwin Gonzalez is at the hot corner and is batting sixth. OF Jake Marisnick also draws into the starting lineup and is hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis is a lineup regular and is off to a great start this month, hitting .280 (7-for-25) with four home runs and nine RBI. Continue riding him in all fantasy formats, and he has become an elite catching option now that he has regained eligibility there. Gonzalez and Marisnick are both low-end daily picks this evening, with Gonzalez carrying a little more intrigue because of his power.

Astros | Evan Gattis homers again

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 15:43:11 -0700

Houston Astros OF Evan Gattis homered in his third straight game Sunday, June 5, as the Astros beat the Oakland Athletics, 5-2.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis spent much of the early part of the season on the shelf due to a hernia, but it looks like he is hitting the ground running. Gattis had a .248-8-22 mark entering this game, so to achieve double-digit homers in nearly 40 games is a great accomplishment. He'll mainly be a designated hitter, but Gattis will be a strong addition to all fantasy rosters.
