Gattis homered and walked in a 1-for-3 game Monday against the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis is bringing the power in September, as he already has six home runs in just 16 games this month. He also has a respectable 8:17 BB:K, and that plate discipline is what is forcing pitchers to throw him pitches he can hit out of the park. Expect Gattis to keep getting at-bats as Houston's designated hitter as they continue to push towards the playoffs.

Gattis went 1-for-5 with a solo homer Sunday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis has had a power surge lately, as he's homered in six of his last 13 games to raise his slugging percentage to .495 on the year. The slugger needs four more bombs the rest of the way to pass his career-high of 27 homers. In addition, he's hit at least 21 long balls in each of his four seasons in the majors.

Gattis went 3-for-4 with a solo homer in Saturday's 12-4 loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The slugging DH took Derek Holland deep in the sixth for one of the Rangers starter's few mistakes of the game. Gattis now has hits in three of his last four games, with an RBI in every contest over that span. The 30-year-old's 23 homers qualify as the second-best total of his career, with his high-water mark of 27, set last season, remaining within reach.

Gattis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

With the Astros adding Yulieski Gurriel to the roster a week ago, Gattis has seen his opportunities at DH take a hit, but he's made up for it by logging more starts at catcher. Expect that trend to continue the rest of the way, as Gattis makes up for his defensive deficiencies behind the plate by providing rare power at the position. Meanwhile, Jason Castro figures to see his at-bats decline as a result of Gattis taking on more catching duties, though Castro will serve as the backstop in Sunday's series finale.

Gattis went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and walk in Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran backstop opened the scoring with an RBI double in the second that drove in Carlos Correa, his fifth RBI over the last three games. Gattis has also hit safely in six of his last eight contests and is enjoying his best month of the season, slashing .308/.365/.526 with five doubles, four homers and 11 RBI over 78 at-bats in August.

Gattis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis will sit after starting the past three games, opening up the DH spot for rookie A.J. Reed. In 23 contests since the All-Star break, Gattis is slashing a formidable .287/.333/.540 with five homers and 11 RBI, which likely gives him a fairly secure hold on DH duties.

Gattis went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles in Friday's 5-3 victory over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran's bat has caught fire in August, as he's now slashing .311/.340/.467 with four doubles, a homer and five RBI. Gattis is also 6-for-10 over the last two games and has raised his average 17 points since Aug. 1.

Gattis went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI during Thursday night's game against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis' batting average (.229) might not be pleasing to the eye, but his ability to create runs with his power overshadows it. The 29-year-old is on pace to hit over 20 home runs for the fourth-consecutive season, even though his RBI total (43) isn't necessarily reflective of that.

Gattis is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Twins, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jason Castro will start behind the plate as Gattis gets the night off. Gattis, who's hitting a mere .226 for the season, has shown some minor improvement at the plate recently, having gone 12-for-46 (.261) over the last 14 games.
