Tack another happening to the crazy story of Evan Gattis. The Atlanta Braves catcher has been named the National League Rookie of the Month for April.

Gattis led Major League rookies with six home runs, 16 RBIs, a .566 slugging percentage and 43 total bases while hitting .250. He also led the Braves with five game-winning RBIs.

Gattis hit a homer in his Major League debut on April 3, becoming the seventh player in Atlanta history to homer in his first big league game.

Though he earned his roster spot due to Brian McCann's absence due to shoulder surgery, Gattis is expected to remain with the Braves when McCann returns next week.
