No place to put him.

Post by Mike
The Braves are in an interesting dilemma, they have too many bats and not enough roster spots.

On Sunday Chipper Jones watched batting practice and lit up Twitter with comments about Up-Up-and-JHey. Then a non roster invitee named Evan Gattis, also know as El Oso Blanco after his impressive winter league performance in South America, came to the plate.

Apparently his power is overwhelming and it was reported his homers flew further than any of the day.

Then on Monday, Craig Kimbrel threw batting practice. In a thirty minute session he surrendered only two hits, both by Gattis. The second hit came after Kimbrel buzzed the tower at 98, then tried to get a curve by the Oso Blanco.

So where does this guy fit in? He is 6'4" - 230, plays catcher, first, or left. The last time I checked we have those spots filled.

It is a nice problem to have, but this kid has to play every day! I suspect he will be in Gwinnett in April, but wouldn't it be nice to see him rather than Schafer pinch hitting in late innings.
