El Oso Blanco is such an awesome Nickname for Gattis.
Braves RHP Billy Bullock has been suspended 50 games following 2nd violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program
At this point, I want to see what he can do at the MLB level...#Braves LF/C prospect Evan Gattis hit 15th HR and had 4 RBI tonight, giving him Venezuelan winter league highs in both (15 HRs, 41 RBI)
Gattis hit yet another homer tonight his 16th
Simmons over Harper!!!
2014 - Simmons 0.7 vs Harper -0.2
2013 - Simmons 4.7 vs Harper 3.8
Career - Simmons 7.6 vs Harper 8.1
162 game average - Simmons 5.0 vs Harper 4.7
League record is 20 by Bo Diaz.
The numbers are very encouraging for Gattis in the VWL so no surprise it has folks, including myself, excited.
I suppose the one thing to look into is the K/BB ratio. Yes, El Oso Blanco has smashed every level he's been but he's also made contact in every level.
The more times you put bat on ball...the better your chances are for what you can do (smash in Gattis's case) to translate to the bigs.
