Gattis wasn’t in the lineup for Friday’s series opener, but manager Fredi Gonzalez said he would play Saturday and possibly Sunday in the season finale. The slugger didn’t catch for 2 ½ weeks because of illness before returning to the lineup Thursday and catching six innings against the Pirates.
“During (Thurday’s) game he felt tired, like we knew he would,” Gonzalez said. “I checked on him in the fifth, because I was trying to get him one more at-bat. … I go, how you feel? He goes, pretty tired. Which we knew; he hadn’t caught in 17 days. But he came out of it good. I’ll probably end up catching him (Saturday) or the next day. We’ll see.
