Evan Gattis (HOU) – Our recommendations at catcher are the same two value plays as yesterday but in reverse order today. Gattis has posted a .361 wOBA and .246 ISO against LHP in his brief major league career. He’ll face CJ Wilson who has allowed a .329 wOBA and 10.5 percent BB Rate to RHBs since 2012. Wilson does a good job at keeping righties on the ground (46.5 percent GB Rate) but his elevated BB Rate should present strong RBI opportunities for the middle of the Houston order. Gattis ranks inside our Top 25 hitters for the evening slate and our top catcher option.
