Minor Accomplishments: Jon Homerton Returns

So he's not technically a prospect, but Jon Singleton returned to the majors on Friday after spending the first three months in Triple-A. Still just 23 years old, the slugging first baseman/designated hitter was on point in the minors to start the year - leading the Pacific Coast League in homers (17) and RBI (66!) while slashing .280/.387/.553 in 70 games with Fresno. Singleton...

Jon Singleton a victim of the Astros success

The Fresno Grizzlies’ Jon Singleton hit a home run last night, to end a home run drought that had been highly publicized. It was his first homer since May 24th, but the home run gave him 15 homers on the season, enough to lead the league. The focus on Singleton should be on how he has played during this home run drought. In his last ten games he is hitting .333 with the one home...

Prospect Pulse: Touki Toussaint, John Hart’s Latest Coup

The Atlanta Braves were supposed to be a terrible baseball team this year. With the trades of Craig Kimbrel, Jason Heyward, Evan Gattis, and Justin Upton, just to name the big ones, even the most ardent Braves fans were expecting a full rebuild. Nearly halfway through the season, however, Atlanta finds themselves a mere three games out of first place in a weak NL East division. Sure...

Atlanta Braves option Mike Foltynewicz down to minors

Earlier this week the Atlanta Braves sent their top prospect Christian Bethancourt down to the minors. Now, today, they have sent another struggling young talent back down to the farm, pitcher Mike Foltynewicz.

Braves option Mike Foltynewicz to Triple-A Gwinnett

ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Braves have optioned Mike Foltynewicz to Triple-A Gwinnett after the right-hander struggled in his past three starts.

Are the Reds and Devin Mesoraco finally out of options?

You have to hand it to Devin Mesoraco.  He’s willing to try anything to get back on the field and help the Cincinnati Reds despite a left hip impingement that makes playing his regular position of catcher impossible. The latest experiment, straight out of the Evan Gattis playbook, had Mesoraco going to AAA Louisville to get some playing time in left field.  Three games into it...

Don’t count out Atlanta Braves’ Christian Bethancourt

One of the reasons the Atlanta Braves’ were so reluctant to resign Brian McCann two years ago and Evan Gattis last year was because they knew they had a young perennial all-star catcher waiting behind them who goes by the name Christian Bethancourt. But now, after 25 games this season Bethancourt has just as many hits as he does strikeouts, 15. Six of those hits have been for extra...

Evan Gattis and Chris Carter extend hitting streaks, provide offensive surge for Houston Astros

While the Houston Astros offense has not been hitting for great average this season, they are still putting runs on the board and racking up wins on a consistent basis. That said, with the recent offensive surge from power hitters Evan Gattis and Chris Carter, it would come as no surprise to see the Astros continue to win in the month of June.

Upgrade up the middle for the Atlanta Braves

Memorial Day has come and gone and the Atlanta Braves are not dead and buried.  Far from it. The team is 26-25 and only 2.5 games behind the Washington Nationals in the National League East division after beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-1 on Monday.  The record to this point is only two games worse than last year’s 28-23 start.

Top AAA Hitters

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Evan Gattis, a Tale of Two Very Different Months

The designated hitter who is catcher eligible, plays every day, and hits a ton of homers has finally started to seriously contribute to fantasy teams after a slow start.

Evan Gattis' early season struggles with the Houston Astros were well-documented. He took a while to get going with the bat - essentially the primary aspect of his skill set that made him an attractive trade target for Jeff Luhnow's front office. He has shown signs every so often of breaking out of that funk, however.  On Wednesday, Gattis turned a 1-1 tie into a 3-1 lead with a...
