by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/27/2014) Whether because of poor matchups, unfavorable platoon splits or the fact they're just plain cold, Yan Gomes, Allen Craig, Josh Rutledge, Lonnie Chisenhall, Andrelton Simmons and Khris Davis are "sits" for Fantasy Week 18 (July 28-Aug. 3)

Find out the "why" for each in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.

Yan Gomes looking like a lefty masher again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) 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.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) 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.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Yan Gomes one of better Indians hitters despite recent slump


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Catcher Yan Gomes has been one of the most productive hitters in the Indians lineup this season - but that's not saying much. Even a recent slump doesn't change that status.

Gomes peaked at .280 after starting May on a 19-for-59 stretch in which he hit safely in 12 of 15 games. He had three home runs and 10 RBI during one 10-game period early in the month. But he needed a single in the ninth inning Wednesday to halt an 0-for-11 skid.

He boasts a decent .265/.314/.438 stat line on the season with six homers, 19 RBI and 23 runs scored for the impotent Indians.
