Yan Gomes is out of the Indians' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the White Sox.

Chris Gimenez will start at catcher and bat eighth versus Chicago lefty Chris Sale. Gomes has six home runs and 21 RBI in 34 games this season, but he's sitting on a rough .173/.207/.362 overall batting line.
May 24 - 7:03 PM

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Thursday against the Reds.

Instead it will be Chris Gimenez behind the plate. It appears to be a simple maintenance day for Gomes, who is hitting just .183. At least Gomes has found his power stroke, homering in three of his last five outings.
May 19 - 4:23 PM

Yan Gomes went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in Monday’s 15-6 win over the Reds.

Gomes launched a three-run homer in the sixth inning before adding a sacrifice fly one inning later. After homering just three times over his first 100 plate appearances, the 28-year-old has gone deep in each of his last three games. It’s an encouraging sign, but he’s still batting just .179/.212/.387 overall.

Yan Gomes is absent from the Indians' lineup Sunday.

Gomes has homered in two straight games but is getting a day off. Chris Gimenez is catching.
May 15 - 10:28 AM

Yan Gomes homered in his second straight game Saturday against the Twins.

Gomes had three home runs coming into the weekend before launching two in roughly 24 hours. He's still not making much contact in general, though, batting .167/.204/.353 with 29 strikeouts in 102 at-bats this season. Perhaps his power surge is a sign of the tide starting to turn for the 28-year-old.
May 14 - 8:10 PM

Yan Gomes went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in the fourth inning of Wednesday night's victory over the Tigers.

It's been a tough run for Gomes. He's only 3-for-26 (.115 AVG) in his last seven games. His RBI double could've knocked in two runs on Wednesday, though, had Anibal Sanchez not allowed a run earlier in the at-bat with a wild pitch. Despite his struggles, he still offers premium power for the catching position. The batting average just has skyrocket upward for his power to be meaningful in game situations. He's hitting .197/.215/.368 on the year.
May 4 - 8:53 PM

Yan Gomes ripped a solo homer to tie the game in the eighth inning of Monday's loss to the Twins.

Gomes took Ryan Pressly deep with one out in the eighth to knot things up at 3-3 before the Twins eventually won with a walk-off homer in the ninth. He also drew a walk, reaching base in two of his four plate appearances. Gomes has homered three times this month.

It's a routine day off. Roberto Perez will catch while Gomes rests.
Apr 24 - 10:30 AM

Yan Gomes homered and plated five runs as the Indians routed the Tigers 10-1 in Detroit on Saturday.

Gomes finished a triple shy of the cycle, finishing the afternoon 3-for-5 with three runs scored and five RBI. After a slow start to the season, he has picked it up offensively the past few games and is now hitting .240/.250/.420 with two homers and 10 RBI on the season.
Apr 23 - 4:20 PM

Yan Gomes will get the day off Thursday.

Roberto Perez will catch Indians starter Cody Anderson and bat eighth versus Mariners right-hander Nate Karns. Gomes owns a weak .220/.233/.341 batting line over 43 plate appearances this season for the Tribe.

Yan Gomes is getting the day off Thursday.

Roberto Perez will catch Danny Salazar and bat ninth versus Tampa Bay right-hander Chris Archer.
Apr 14 - 10:04 AM

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup on Sunday against the White Sox.

He's just getting some rest. Roberto Perez will handle the catching duties. Juan Uribe is also getting a breather, as Jose Ramirez is at the hot corner.
Apr 10 - 11:06 AM

Yan Gomes continued his Cactus League power display, blasting his sixth home run in Friday's 9-1 victory over the Rangers.

His solo shot came in the second inning off Rangers starter Colby Lewis. Gomes also singled in the contest, finishing the day 2-for-4 and raising his spring average to .313. After a disappointing 2015 campaign, Gomes is expected to bounce back and be one of the top offensive performers at the catcher position in 2016.
Apr 2 - 1:08 AM

Yan Gomes smacked a solo homer -- his third home run of the spring -- in Monday's win over the Rangers.

Gomes also added a double and scored a pair of runs. The Indians' catcher has seven hits -- including three dingers -- over his first 20 Cactus League at-bats. Gomes had a down year at the plate in 2015 but is a good bet to bounce bat in 2016.
