ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves have placed catcher Evan Gattis on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.

The Braves announced the move before Tuesday's doubleheader against the New York Mets. Infielder Tyler Pastornicky was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Gattis injured himself on his final at-bat of a 2-1 victory over the Mets on Monday night. Brian McCann was on deck to pinch hit when Freddie Freeman hit a two-run homer to win the game in the ninth inning.

The 26-year-old Gattis has been one of baseball's most surprising players. He earned a backup job in spring training as a non-roster player and quickly increased his role with a penchant for dramatic homers.

He is second on the Braves in homers (14) and RBIs (37) while batting .252.
