"Evan told Brian that his timing has gotten better, feels better every time he goes out there," Gonzalez said. "I think we'll make a decision on Sunday afternoon for him to be up here Monday."
Gattis batted second on Saturday night in an effort to get as many at-bats as possible. He only made it to the plate twice in his five innings on Friday while batting in the cleanup spot.
"Don't be asking him to bunt or hit-and-run; I don't know if he can do that," Gonzalez joked. "He's just trying to get as many as-bats as he can in six or seven innings, which is a good idea. It's a great idea."
