VIDEO: Toronto Blue Jays Owe Evan Gattis and Collin McHugh a Sixer of Beer

El Oso Blanco, known to his parents as Evan Gattis, laced a line drive home run just a couple of rows beyond the right field fence off of Michael Pineda in the top of the 2nd earlier today. Sure it’s a short porch in right at Yankee Stadium. We all know that, but Gattis is a right-handed batter, so the opposite field shot is still impressive. However, Gattis hit a bona fide bomb...

Watch: Astros OF Evan Gattis goes flying over bullpen mound, laughs

The 6-foot-4, 260-pound left fielder chased a foul ball in the seventh inning of the Astros-Giants game, ultimately stumbling over the bullpen mound and into...

Gattis being a triple-threat leaves Astros' Hinch in awe

Evan Gattis is known for his power and hitting - not necessarily his speed. Despite that, Gattis inexplicably picked up his seventh triple of the season on Tuesday night in the Houston Astros' win over the Los Angeles Angels. Maybe it's due to the funky dimensions of Minute Maid Park, with its jagged edges and Tal's Hill in center field, but for whatever reason he's found a way to...
