Evan Gattis: rankings in framing from 2013 and 2014 w/ ATL:

  • 2013 – #4 in zBall% (10.2), #25 in oStr% (7.6), #18 in +Calls (46), #11 in PerGame (1.31), #18 in RAA (6.1).
  • 2014 – #30 in zBall% (12.3), #42 in oStr% (7.1), #41 in +Calls (-8), #37 in PerGame (-0.09), #41 in RAA (-1.1).

Gattis has been more known for his bat during his MLB career, as with the Braves in ’13 and ’14, he clobbered 43 HRs, 117 RBIs, and 183 hits with a slash line of .253/.304/.487/.791.

Gattis‘ first year in 2013 platooning with McCann helps his framing ability as his total framing skills could place him in the Top 20 of the 2013 catcher class; which was better overall than what McCann’s framing contributed in 2013.
