|Yan Gomes looking like a lefty masher again |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/21/14) When Yan Gomes broke through as a relevant Fantasy contributor last season, he did so by walloping left-handers to the tune of a .327 batting average and .934 OPS. Now more than halfway through 2014, it's safe to say the pattern has continued.
Granted, he's just been hot in general, batting .318 (27 for 85) with a .944 OPS in his last 24 games, but for the season, he's batting .359 with a .944 OPS against lefties compared to .234 and .700 against righties.
In two-catcher leagues, that's not particularly useful information, but if you play in a one-catcher league and find yourself constantly swapping out catchers on the waiver wire because you don't have one of the no-brainer options like Buster Posey, Devin Mesoraco or Evan Gattis at the position, it's something to keep in mind. Whenever the Indians are facing a bunch of lefties, Gomes is a terrific choice.

(7/20/14) Indians catcher Yan Gomes continued to be one of his team's most productive hitters Sunday as he was pretty much its entire offense in a loss in Detroit.
Gomes provided the first hit on a double in the fifth and the only run on a solo home run in the seventh. He has four taters in his last 10 games to give him 13 on the season.

(7/13/14) Indians catcher Yan Gomes drove in all three runs in his team's 3-2 win Sunday over the White Sox, including the go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning. Gomes is up to 12 homers and 36 RBI after his 2-for-4 performance.
Gomes closed the first half with three homers and six RBI in his last seven games. He's hitting .261/.306/.436 in 287 at-bats.
|Yan Gomes knocks 11th home run Monday vs. Yankees |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/7/14) Indians catcher Yan Gomes went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 5-3 loss to the Yankees Monday.
Gomes' eighth-inning home run brought his team to within two, but it was the closest they would get before taking the loss. The catcher has smacked home runs in back-to-back games. Gomes owns a .270/.313/.446 line with 11 home runs and 33 RBI in 267 at-bats.
|When the Indians acquried Yan Gomes in November 2012, Fantasy owners probably didn't count on the Brazilian to play an important role for his new team, much less make an impact in Fantasy. Yet Gomes managed to do both, playing well enough to take over the lion's share of the catching duties from Carlos Santana over the season's final two months. Santana didn't go away -- he just spent more time at designated hitter -- but Gomes' solid play gave manager Terry Francona the option of using his star catcher elsewhere. Gomes is expected to reprise his role as the Indians' primary catcher, and while he may not flirt with a .300 batting average again, he has enough power to be useful in two-catcher leagues.
