Meet your new LF prospect
The Braves have moved late-blooming catcher Evan Gattis to LF, and the 25-year-old slugger responded Tuesday with two long homers in his first game as an outfielder, driving in five against the Carolina Mudcats.
In 16 games Gattis has 8 homers, driven in 26 and struck out only 8 times. He has a .424 BA, .507 OBP and .898 slugging percentage. In other words, Gattis is no longer just a curiosity but a legit prospect.
