Pity Evan Gattis. Given the performances of Jose Fernandez and Yasiel Puig, as well as his own injuries and struggles for paying time in the wake of Brian McCann's return from the disabled list, the Braves' catcher has become an afterthought in the race for NL Rookie of the Year. But just in case you forgot he was around, Gattis hit the longest home run of the 2013 season off the Phillies' Cole Hamels on Sunday, blasting a 1-0 fastball onto the concourse in dead center at Citizens Bank Park in the second inning.
