Struggling backup catcher Evan Gattis has been optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett the Braves announced after Friday night's win over the Marlins.

Obviously this move is temporary as Gwinnett only has three games left so it's pretty likely the Braves just want him to get the greatest number of at-bats possible before he rejoins the team. Just a pinch hit opportunity here or there may not be enough to help him work through any issues with his swing.
