Evan Gattis Biography
Evan Gattis was born August 18, 1986 and is an American professional baseball player. He is currently a catcher and left fielder with the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball.
Gattis was a premier amateur baseball player in the Forney, Texas, area through high school. However, anxiety and substance use led him to abandon his scholarship to Texas A&M University. After wandering around the Western United States for four years, he returned to baseball, and was drafted by the Braves in 2010.
Gattis started the 2012 season with the Lynchburg Hillcats of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League. After starting the season with a .385 batting average, nine home runs, and 29 runs batted in (RBIs) in 21 games, he was promoted to the Mississippi Braves of the Class AA Southern League at the end of April. With Brian McCann starting for the Braves and top prospect Christian Bethancourt regarded as an excellent catcher, Gattis was shifted to left field. After the regular season, he played in the Venezuelan Winter League, where he batted .303 with 16 home runs and a .595 slugging percentage in 53 games, leading the league in home runs and slugging percentage. He earned the nickname El Oso Blanco, Spanish for the White Bear.
The Braves invited Gattis to spring training in 2013. With a 19-for-53 (.358) performance in the Grapefruit League and McCann starting the season on the disabled list, the Braves added Gattis to their Opening Day roster to share catching duties with Gerald Laird. On April 3, 2013, Gattis made his major league debut. He recorded his first hit as a major leaguer, a home run off of Roy Halladay, in his second at bat. He batted .333 in his first eight games, also homering off of Stephen Strasburg.
