The homer was his first in 12 games since he returned from a concussion. Gomes has 18 homers and 62 RBI for the year, making him one of the game's best offensive catchers. He's no slouch behind the dish, either.

Yan Gomes (head) will be re-evaluated on Friday.

Gomes left Thursday's game with what was labeled illness at the time, but which actually turned out to be the ill effects of having been struck in the head by a deflected ball. Team doctors have not yet disclosed whether Gomes has a concussion, and the catcher himself declined comment after the game. Indians skipper Terry Francona said Gomes is already improving, which is the good news, but the symptoms were described as "concussion-like," which is the bad. Stay tuned.

Yan Gomes homered and finished 3-for-4 with three runs scored as the Indians came back to beat the Twins 7-5 on Tuesday.

Gomes hadn't scored since August 6 before Tuesday's three-run outburst. His solo home run in the second inning started the Indians on the comeback trail, and he came in on a two-run double in the sixth inning that gave the Tribe their first lead. The catcher is enjoying another strong year, batting .285/.325/.479 with 17 home runs and 53 RBI on the season.
Aug 20 - 12:07 AM

Yan Gomes homered Wednesday to extend his hitting streak to 12 games.

Once defense is factored in, Gomes rates as one of the AL's best players so far this year. He's hitting .286/.327/.489 with 16 homers and 50 RBI in 350 at-bats, and the only AL catcher with a better OPS is Derek Norris, who neither catches as much nor as well as Gomes.

Yan Gomes (neck) is back in the Indians' starting lineup on Monday night against the Reds.

Aug 4 - 3:24 PM

Yan Gomes (neck) pinch-hit in the ninth inning Sunday.

Gomes was out of the Indians' starting lineup for the second consecutive game due to stiffness in his neck. It doesn't sound like a major concern. "He got here early [on Sunday] and I think he wanted to work through it and play," Indians manager Terry Francona told reporters Sunday evening. "I just think with all the catching he's done to this point, especially being a day game, if we allow him to get treatment and maybe come into the game later, I think that would do him a world of good."
Aug 4 - 3:19 PM

Yan Gomes drove in the only two runs of the night on Wednesday, doubling to right field in the fifth inning of the Indians' 2-0 victory over the Mariners.

Corey Kluber brought his A-game once again, so Gomes' two-run double was the deciding hit of the game. It was the catcher's only hit on the night in three at-bats. Gomes, 27, has hit in six consecutive games and is now slashing a respectable .281/.323/.468 with 14 home runs and 45 RBI.
Jul 30 - 9:26 PM

Yan Gomes went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Sunday's win over the Royals.

Gomes had an RBI single in the fourth inning before a solo homer in the ninth capped the scoring. The homer was Gomes' 14th on the season, giving him 42 RBI. The catcher has come out of the gate strong in the second half and owns a .281/.324/.469 line after Sunday's showing.
Jul 27 - 7:17 PM

Yan Gomes finished 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

The double was Gomes' 16th this season, giving him 39 RBI. The catcher has come out of the blocks in the second half with purpose, as he's 9-for-17 with four doubles, a home run, three RBI and five runs scored in five games. The heater has upped his season line to .276/.322/.464.
