Gattis is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Brian McCann gets the start behind the dish and Carlos Beltran will DH as the Astros face Angels starter Ricky Nolasco. Gattis' bat has cooled off a bit over the last week as he's collected just three hits over his last 14 at-bats. He figures to rejoin the lineup for Sunday's series finale.

Gattis went 4-for-6 with a double, a home run, three runs scored and three RBI in Wednesday's 17-6 rout of the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

His eighth-inning solo shot was his fourth homer of the season and part of a six-HR barrage from the Astros. Gattis added 20 points to his batting average with the four-hit performance, and he now has a .287/.355/.451 slash line on the season.

Gattis is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis is in line to act as the primary catcher with Brian McCann (concussion) out of commission, but he'll head to the bench for a night off after collecting just three hits over the past seven games. Juan Centeno will assume the catching duties for the evening.

Gattis went 1-for-3 with a walk in Monday's 1-0 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis got the start at catcher Monday with Brian McCann having been placed on the 7-day concussion list over the weekend. McCann's eligible to be activated Saturday so presume Gattis will get the bulk of the starts this week. He's hitting .271/.360/.417 through 29 games this season.

Gattis isn't included in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers, Julia Morales of ROOT Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis' move to the bench ends a streak of six straight starts, during which he went 8-for-22 with a homer and six RBI. Now that all the Astros regulars are back to full health, Gattis won't have a clear route to an everyday role, but manager A.J. Hinch still figures to find a fair amount of starts every week for Gattis at either catcher or designated hitter.

Gattis went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was Gattis' second of the season, both coming in his last three starts. After an offseason in which Houston acquired Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran, we were curious about Gattis' opportunities in 2017 but he's appeared in 14 of Houston's 21 games. More recently, outfield injuries have led to Beltran playing left field and allowed Gattis to serve as the designated hitter, as was the case Wednesday. When in the starting lineup, Gattis has primarily slotted into the middle of the order, hitting fourth or fifth where RBI opportunities abound.

Gattis is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays, Julia Morales of ROOT Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis will be on the bench for the second time in the series with Brian McCann behind the plate and Carlos Beltran assuming the DH duties. The 30-year-old was at least productive in the lone game he's played this series, slugging his first homer of the season and driving in two runs in Saturday's loss.

Gattis went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI during Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis has been seeing semi-regular playing time with 34 at-bats, and he's turning in solid results when given the opportunity. Currently sporting a .294/.415/.441 slash line with five runs and seven RBI, he's well on his way to a serviceable showing from the catcher position. It also might prove that a little more rest and duty as the designated hitter allows Gattis to be more efficient when he's in the lineup.

Gattis went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis extended Houston's lead to two runs in the sixth inning when he singled home Josh Reddick. The Angels were playing the percentages in the sixth and brought in right-handed reliever Blake Parker to face Gattis, who had been 4-for-17 (.235) against righties prior to coming through with his fifth RBI of the season.

Gattis will catch and bat sixth in Friday's game against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Gattis will be behind the plate for the second time this season, this time catching for veteran right-hander Mike Fiers. His appearance in the lineup likely has to do in part with the fact that the Astros are facing a lefty in Jason Vargas. Gattis is 2-for-7 at the plate so far this season to go along with one extra-base hit.
