Gattis reportedly hit at least a dozen balls out at Marlins Park in Miami, and he didn't feel any ill effects of the oblique strain or his rehab.
“It felt great,” Gattis said. “I couldn’t feel (the oblique strain). Felt good. A little rusty, but I feel real good. I feel close, ready to play. See how it is tomorrow, get another BP, then hopefully get in some games.”
The Braves will likely send Gattis on a minor league rehab assignment sometime next week, hopefully to have him back in time for an interleague series with the Chicago White Sox starting July 19.
Gattis is currently hitting .252 and still leads all rookies with 14 homers and 37 RBIs.
