In his rookie season in 2013, Gattis made an immediate impact. He hit .243 with 21 home runs and 65 RBIs in just 105 games. His power and ability to come through in clutch situations earned him the nickname “El Oso Blanco,” which means “The White Bear” in Spanish.

However, Gattis’ time with the Braves came to an end after the 2015 season. In January 2015, he was traded to the Houston Astros as part of a deal that also involved the Texas Rangers. This trade marked the end of Gattis’ tenure with the Braves and the beginning of a new chapter in his career.
