Gattis is eligible to come off the DL on Wednesday and told braves.com that he thought he could resume baseball activities on Tuesday, but the club is committed to keeping him shut down until his soreness from rehabbing his injured oblique subsides.
Of course, that didn't stop the 26-year-old rookie from making a promotional appearance at a Georgia Kia dealership on Monday, albeit without swinging a bat.
Gattis has hit .252 with 14 home runs in 53 games, including going 6-for-8 with four homers as a pinch-hitter.
