“Take an extra day today to be safe,” Gattis said. “Try to get back out there soon.”
Gattis said he first started feeling sick Saturday night in St. Louis, with chills and fever, and has been on antibiotics for a few days. He caught nine innings Monday night against the Brewers, but Tuesday night he started to feel sick as he warmed Julio Teheran up in the bullpen. He was scratched 10-15 minutes before first pitch, forcing Gerald Laird into last-minute duties.
