Yan Gomes set to sit in nightcap Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Yan Gomes homers, doubles in defeat of Twins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) Yan Gomes continued to prove himself as one of the premier hitting catchers in the game Thursday with Minnesota in town to play the Indians.

Gomes slammed a solo homer in the second inning of the doubleheader opener, then nearly repeated the feat in the third with a bases-loaded double that smacked against the wall. His stat line on the year now stands at .288/.322/.480. That slugging percentage leads all American League catchers.


Hitters to start in Week 23


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/31/2014) Looking for a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 23 (Sept. 1-7)? Yan Gomes, Kennys Vargas, Dustin Ackley, Trevor Plouffe, Erick Aybar and Jorge Soler are all considered "starts" for the upcoming scoring period.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Yan Gomes brought off DL Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) The Indians activated catcher Yan Gomes from the concussion disabled list as expect Friday, and he is in the starting lineup for that evening's game against the Royals.

Yan Gomes 'should be ready' to return Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Indians manager Terry Francona indicated Tuesday that catcher Yan Gomes (concussion) is on track to come off the 7-day disabled list Friday, which is the first day he is eligible to return.

Gomes was able to go through sprint drills prior to Tuesday's game against the White Sox, according to The Plain Dealer.

"Yan is having a really good day," Francona said Tuesday. "His eyes look a lot clearer. I don't want to be unfair to him, but I'd surprised if he's not raring to go by Friday and Friday is his day (to be activated). Unless he has a setback, he should be ready Friday."


Yan Gomes slows baseball activity Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Indians catcher Yan Gomes slowed his baseball activity Sunday after still experiencing concussion symptoms Saturday, MLB.com reports.

"I don't think that it'll be more than [seven days], but there's phases," manager Terry Francona said Sunday. "They ramp up progressively. I think there's three or four steps, and each one you have to pass. When you pass one, you go on to the next one. How fast, it just depends on how you feel."

Gomes won't be rushed back to action as he recovers from his injury. He has hit .284/.324/.477 with 17 home runs and 53 RBI in 384 at-bats.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

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.


Yan Gomes provides only offense for Indians on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) 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.


Yan Gomes scores three times in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Indians catcher Yan Gomes put together a solid game Saturday, in a 6-2 win over the Tigers.

Gomes reached base three times and scored each time, as he went 3 for 4 with a double and a pair of singles. He improved his batting line to .269/.314/.442 with the performance. 


Yan Gomes does all the damage


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.

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.
