AJC: Atlanta Braves Braves GM on Gattis: “Very good prospect”

The Gattis legend has spread to Venezuela this winter, where he’s picked up the nickname “El Oso Blanco” (White Bear) from his mostly Latin teammates on the Aguilas squad while hitting .324 with five homers, 16 RBIs and a 1.009 OPS in 18 games through Thursday. And can I just say, that’s a damn fine nickname.

I have driven by Gattis Pizza numerous times but didn't know they were a prospect.

Jordan Schafer was picked up off waivers. Sigh.
