Gattis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels.

Just as he appeared to be turning a corner, an 0-for-11 stretch at the plate has depressed Gattis' batting average to .185. He's only drawn four walks this season to keep his on-base percentage at a similarly paltry .212, making it increasingly difficult for the Astros to trust him as a regular lineup option. Manager A.J. Hinch will shield Gattis on Sunday from a tough right-hander in Garrett Richards, allowing Preston Tucker to slot in as the Astros' designated hitter.

Gattis, who returned to the Astros' starting lineup in left field Tuesday at San Diego, hit a two-run homer in three at-bats.

Gattis' home run in the first inning off Padres' starter Tyson Ross was his second this season. Astros manager A.J. Hinch previously said he wanted to start Gattis in left field at least once during the team's three-game Interleague series at San Diego, so he'll likely be in the lineup again Wednesday.
