Braves Trade Evan Gattis To The Astros

The Atlanta Braves continue to shake up their roster, as they have traded C/OF Evan Gattis to the Houston Astros. In return the Braves will acquire three minor leaguers, pitchers  Mike Foltynewicz, Andrew Thurman and third baseman Rio Ruiz.

Gattis will likely serve as the Astros DH which only helps his fantasy value because lets face it, he's not a good fit anywhere out on the field and now he can just focus on hitting. The Astros lineup isn't too bad now with it looking like this - Jose Altuve, George Springer, Dexter Fowler, Chris Carter, Evan Gattis, Jason Castro, Jed Lowrie, Jon Singleton and Matt Dominguez.

Along with Gattis the Braves have traded outfielders Jason Heyward and Justin Upton and have acquired Shelby Miller and signed Nick Markakis

The Braves lineup has taken a hit and now looks like this - Nick Markakis, B.J. Upton, Freddie Freeman, Chris Johnson, Alberto Callaspo, Andrelton Simmons, Zoilo Almonte, and Christian Bethancourt.
