Gattis (illness) remains without a clear timetable for return, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

It's nearly been two weeks since Gattis has appeared in the starting lineup, although he was able to work in a pinch-hit appearance in Saturday's game. Manager Fredi Gonzalez hopes to have him back in a higher capacity at some point this week, but the exact day is unclear at the moment. Due to the uncertainty, he's a risky play in any weekly lineup format.

Gattis (illness) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

Gattis hasn't started in two weeks due to a kidney stone and a bout with strep throat, but he did manage to make a pinch-hit appearance Saturday. Still, it remains unclear if he'll be healthy enough to play regularly behind the plate over the last week of the season, which likely makes him an unappealing fantasy option for the final slate of games. Christian Bethancourt will make another start at catcher Sunday.
