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.

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.

Gattis got the start at DH on Sunday and went 3-for-4 in an 11-0 loss to the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

He was the only Houston hitter to have much success on the day. In fact, it was Gattis' first game with more than two hits since a 4-for-5 performance back on June 3. He's now hitting .304 (7-for-23) over his last seven games with four homers and six RBI, but Gattis also struck out nine times over that stretch so don't expect his hot streak to continue, at least when it comes to his batting average.

Gattis is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees, the Houston Chronicle's Jake Kaplan reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Jason Castro getting the nod behind the dish and Preston Tucker starting in left field, the Astros will use the DH spot to keep George Springer's bat in the lineup, sending Gattis to the bench. When the Astros' lineup is at full strength with Yulieski Gurriel in the fold in a week or two, Gattis may struggle to get playing time when he is not in the lineup at catcher.
