Yan Gomes went 3-for-3 with a homer, four RBI, a walk and a HBP as the Indians topped the Twins 9-3 in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader.
It's the first time in his career he's reached base safely five times in a game. He hadn't even reached four times in a game since Aug. 13, 2015 against the Yankees. Gomes had a great month of May this year, but he's otherwise been really quiet offensively. Even after today, he's hitting just .226 with eight homers and 37 RBI in 257 at-bats. Aug 17 - 5:38 PM

Yan Gomes crushed a walk-off, three-run homer to beat the Rockies on Tuesday.

The Indians trailed 1-0 entering the bottom of the ninth inning. Austin Jackson drove in a run to tie it, bringing Gomes to the plate to face closer Greg Holland with two outs and two runners on base. Gomes homered to center field to set off the fireworks. He also singled in the ballgame.
Aug 8 - 10:24 PM

Yan Gomes hit a two-run double in Thursday's win over the Yankees.

Gomes delivered one of the game's biggest hits, extending the Indians' lead in the sixth inning. It's been a rough year for the backstop, who's hitting just .224/.318/.362 in 74 games.
Aug 3 - 11:15 PM

Yan Gomes hit his fifth home run of the season in a win over the Padres on Thursday.

Gomes took Padres reliever Jose Torres deep in the sixth inning for a solo job. Homers, and hits in general, have been hard to come by for the 29-year-old, who hadn't homered since May 23. Gomes is hitting .233/.320/.383 in 57 games this year.
Jul 7 - 12:27 AM

Yan Gomes finished 2-for-4 with a run scored and three RBI in Friday's rout of the Twins at Target Field.

It wasn't all great for Gomes, as he struck out twice. Still, it was a step in the right direction considering Gomes entered play with just five hits over his past 40 at-bats (.125) dating back to May 21.
Jun 17 - 2:39 AM

Yan Gomes homered and drove in five runs on Sunday, leading the Indians to an 8-6 victory over the Astros.

Gomes got the Tribe on the board with a run-scoring double in the second inning. He blew the game open by taking Joe Musgrove deep for a three-run shot the following inning. He was also drilled with the bases loaded in the fourth inning. Gomes finished the afternoon 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored and is now hitting .267/.359/.456 with three homers and 11 RBI on the year.
May 21 - 5:18 PM

Yan Gomes (illness) returned to the Indians' lineup on Friday, going 1-for-3 plus a walk in a losing effort against the Twins.

Gomes continues to swing a hot bat after a rough start to the season and is now hitting a respectable .250/.357/.403 with a pair of homers and five RBI. If any impatient fantasy owners cut bait on him in the first month of the season, he's certainly worthy of an addition in two catcher leagues.
May 13 - 8:36 AM

Yan Gomes was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays due to illness.

Gomes picked up a double in the third inning before being replaced by Roberto Perez at catcher in the bottom of the frame. He might receive a day or two off to rest up from the illness that drove him from the game, but this would not appear to be something that would keep him out of action for an extended amount of time.
May 10 - 8:46 PM

Yan Gomes was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays due to a possible injury.

Just how Gomes might have come down injured is unclear. He doubled in the top of the third inning before being replaced behind the plate by Roberto Perez in the bottom of the frame. If there is an injury concern, here, the Indians will pass along an update as the game progresses.
May 10 - 8:41 PM

Yan Gomes went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Gomes had just two RBI in 64 at-bats coming into this one. Still, he has hit better lately, going 7-for-16 this month. What's really interesting is that he's now sporting a 13/9 K/BB ratio on the season. That's as many walks as he had in finishing at 69/9 in 251 at-bats last year.
May 9 - 10:24 PM

Yan Gomes went 1-for-4 with a double and scored the Indians' lone run in a 1-0 victory over the Royals on Sunday.

Gomes doubled in the fifth inning and scored on a single by Carlos Santana. His bat has picked up in recent weeks and he's now hitting .219/.324/.328 with one homer and two RBI for the season.
May 7 - 5:29 PM

Yan Gomes hit his first home run of the season in a loss to the White Sox on Thursday.

The homer was just his second hit through seven games, as Gomes has been ice cold at the dish since the season opened. It's an interesting year for Gomes, who is signed through 2019 but who has competition from 2016 postseason star (and recently locked up to a long-term extension) Roberto Perez and could be pushed by stud prospect Francisco Mejia at some point. All those factors make Gomes best left on the wire for fantasy purposes.
Apr 14 - 8:18 AM

Yan Gomes tallied three hits including his second home run of the spring Wednesday in the Indians’ Cactus League loss to the Rangers.

Gomes clubbed a solo blast in the sixth and also added a pair of singles. Coming off an injury-plagued 2016 campaign, Gomes has been raking all spring. Wednesday’s outburst raised his Cactus League average from an already solid .333 to an absurd .409. It would be a mistake for fantasy owners to sleep on him.
Mar 15 - 8:06 PM

Yan Gomes made the Indians' ALDS roster.

This is remarkable, as Gomes has been beset by injury this season. An AC joint separation in his right shoulder sidelined him in mid-July. Then, during a rehab game on September 14, the 29-year-old backstop suffered a fractured hand after being hit by a pitch. That seemed to spell the end of any hopes of a comeback, but Gomes aced his rehab and returned to major league action on September 30. In addition to Gomes, catchers Chris Gimenez and Roberto Perez also made the Indians' ALDS roster.

Yan Gomes cracked a two-run homer Sunday in the Indians' 3-2 defeat of the Royals on Sunday.

Gomes went deep off Royals starter Ian Kennedy in the top of the third inning to give the Indians a 2-1 lead. It was his first home run since June 25, and it probably secured him a spot on the Indians' postseason roster. He's battled serious shoulder and hand injuries throughout the summer.
