Evan Gattis C/DH HOU 17 hours ago

Gattis is out of the lineup Monday against the Royals.

After playing in 10-straight games, a span when he hit for a .738 OPS with four of his 10 hits going for extra bases, Gattis gets the night off in favor of Jon Singleton, who went 0-for-4 in his season debut on Saturday. Unless Singleton can improve significantly at the plate, Gattis should continue to see regular at-bats, primarily at designated hitter.

Gattis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Seattle on Saturday.

The catcher-turned-DH continues to take an all-or-nothing approach at the plate, with 13 homers, but a meager .264 OBP. His slugging percentage is down from 2014, but he should be able to exceed last season's raw output due to his increase in plate appearances compared to his catching days. A 30-homer campaign isn't out of the question as long as Gattis continues to enjoy everyday playing time for the 'Stros.

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.
