Sep 18 - 3:46 PM

Yan Gomes hit a pair of solo home runs in four at-bats, but the Indians dropped Tuesday's game in 10 innings to the Blue Jays.

Gomes tied the game at 2-2 in the seventh inning with his first solo home run, off of Marco Estrada. In the ninth inning, he re-tied the game at three apiece, swatting his second solo homer off of Roberto Osuna. The catcher now has three homer uns in his last three games, a good sign as he has otherwise not done much offensively. Gomes is batting .225/.265/.389 with 11 home runs and 37 RBI.
Sep 1 - 10:36 PM

Yan Gomes drove in five runs Saturday in the Indians' 8-3 rout of the Angels.

Gomes hit a sacrifice fly that scored Carlos Santana in the bottom of the second inning and he launched a grand slam in Cleveland's five-run eighth inning. Gomes is trying to end his mostly-disappointing 2015 on a high note. He's definitely capable of a strong finish.

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians starting lineup on Saturday.

It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for Gomes being a day game after a night game. Roberto Perez will work behind the plate for the Tribe and bat seventh against Luis Severino and the Yankees.
Aug 22 - 10:08 AM

Yan Gomes hit a three-run homer against the Red Sox in Wednesday's loss.

Gomes has three homers and 13 RBI in 13 games this month. He's back looking like a legitimate mixed-league catcher following his April injury and slow start after returning.
Aug 19 - 10:56 PM

Yan Gomes went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI in a losing effort against the Yankees on Thursday.

Thursday was a bright spot in what has been an otherwise disappointing season for Gomes, who is hitting .237/.271/.384 with seven homers and 28 RBI.
Aug 13 - 11:27 PM

Yan Gomes went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and four RBI in Friday's 10-9 loss to the Twins.

Gomes drove home a run with a sacrifice fly in the third inning, then did considerably more damage when he belted a three-run homer off Twins reliever A.J. Achter in the fourth. These kinds of games are not the norm for the catcher, who is hitting .227/.251/.377 with seven homers and 24 RBI across 207 at-bats.

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup.

He's getting a breather following a day game after a night game. Roberto Perez will catch in Gomes' place.
Aug 5 - 1:23 PM

Yan Gomes finished 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Angels.

Gomes clubbed a two-run home run in the first inning to extend the Indians' lead to 3-0. The backstop has swung a better bat since the beginning of July, but still has a measly .227/.254/.369 batting line on the year along with six home runs and 20 RBI.

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

It's a simple day off. Roberto Perez will catch in Gomes' place.
Aug 2 - 1:26 PM

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Tuesday.

It's just a day off for the 28-year-old catcher, who has a disappointing .223/.249/.346 slash line on the season. He's a pretty good bet to produce better numbers down the stretch. Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate Tuesday night against the Royals.
Jul 28 - 4:01 PM

Yan Gomes showed patience in drawing a bases loaded walk, bringing in the go-ahead run in the 11th inning, helping the Indians top the Reds on Sunday.

Gomes entered the game in the seventh inning as a pinch-hitter, lining out to center, then staying in as a defensive replacement. He singled in the 10th ahead of drawing his go-ahead walk in the 11th. Gomes is still waiting to get on a hot streak, as he's batting a meager .222/.241/.348 with four home runs and 14 RBI in in 166 plate appearances this year.
Jul 19 - 6:18 PM

Yan Gomes is absent from the Indians' lineup Sunday.

Gomes cranked a homer on Saturday but is getting a breather the next day. Roberto Perez is behind the dish.
