Why doesn't Evan Gattis catch for Julio Teheran?

Atlanta Braves rookie Julio Teheran blazed through Spring Training, turning heads, putting his name onto Rookie of the Year watch lists, and -- of course -- earning the fifth spot in the Atlanta Braves starting rotation.

With fans buzzing about why Evan Gattis was playing first base instead of catching yesterday, I pulled the box scores for each of Teheran's starts in February and March, and I threw the relevant numbers into a spreadsheet to see if who was catching that day made any difference.  (See the stats in the image below.)

Rain, Rain, Go Away (for the Braves game)

Rain, Rain, Go Away (for the Braves game)

With rain threatening tonight's Braves game, Twitter has been buzzing with rhymes and catchprases. @cannonsimp had a great idea: let's come up with a catchphrase similar to "Spahn and Sain, and pray for rain" for today's team.  So I did:

Huddy, Maholm, Minor, and Kris,
And when they're done, our Rookie of the Year.
You don't want to face a lineup like this.
May as well pray that the skies aren't clear.
