Very possible. It's a sticky situation. A lot will be determined if we can find a regular LF for this year or not. I think that if the Braves think that Bethancourt is a couple years away, they will play Gattis at C in the minors all year because he needs all the training that he can get back there.
Or he could spend the rest of his career as a LF and they sign some vet to a 1 or 2 year deal at the end of the year.
Yeah, he doesn't have to hit a lot with the way he plays defense, but he does have to hit some. Good thing is, he's still young and has time to improve. He's farther away from the bigs than most Braves fans want to believe.
