Yan Gomes (shoulder) played catch out to a distance of 100 feet on Monday.
Gomes continues to ramp up his hitting in the cage and has now been playing catch for about a week. The 29-year-old suffered an AC joint separation in his shoulder on July 17, but he's still hoping to make it back this season. Chris Gimenez and Roberto Perez will continue to fill in for now.

Yan Gomes (shoulder) has resumed light baseball activities.

It's a good sign but Gomes still isn't close to beginning a rehab assignment. Gomes separated his shoulder last month after falling awkwardly on a play at first base. He's had a dreadful season, hitting just .165 in 249 at-bats for the Tribe. Chris Gimenez and Roberto Perez have split time at catcher during his absence.

Indians placed C Yan Gomes on the 15-day disabled list with a separated right shoulder.

Gomes suffered an AC joint separation during an awkward fall at first base on Sunday. He won't need surgery and has a chance to make it back before the end of the season. Chris Gimenez and Roberto Perez will handle catching duties for the time being.

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Indians are "reluctant" to trade for a catcher.

Yan Gomes separated his shoulder in Sunday's win over the Twins and could be out for the season. However, Gomes was hitting very poorly before his injury (.165 AVG in 249 at-bats) and the Indians feel they can probably get by with Chris Gimenez and Roberto Perez behind the plate. There's a strong possibility the Brewers will deal catcher Jonathan Lucroy before the trade deadline but right now, he's not on the Indians' radar.

Yan Gomes was diagnosed with a separated right shoulder after an awkward fall at first base Sunday.

Gomes went head over cleats just before reaching first base on a groundball in the fifth inning and landed hard on multiple body parts, especially his right shoulder. "The X-rays showed it's a dislocated shoulder," Gomes said after the game, his right arm in a sling. "There is something sticking out of it right now." He'll be placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, with Roberto Perez likely taking his roster spot.

Yan Gomes will be re-evaluated on Monday after leaving Sunday's game with a right shoulder injury.

Gomes was forced to leave Sunday's game after landing on his shoulder during an awkward play at first base. Chris Gimenez would be in line for more playing time if Gomes requires an extended absence.

Yan Gomes was carted off the field after suffering a right shoulder injury on a play at first base.

Gomes hit the first base bag awkwardly with his left foot, did a somersault and then landed on his right shoulder. His right arm was put in a sling and he was then carted off the field. The Indians should have an update on Gomes after the game.

Yan Gomes went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Gomes picked up an RBI single against Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ in the seventh inning to score the lone Indians run of the game. His squad managed just five hits on the afternoon. While Gomes has slugged eight home runs, his .182/.216/.345 triple-slash across 220 at-bats tells the wider tale. The 28-year-old backstop carries a minimal amount of fantasy upside, even in deeper AL-only formats.
Jul 3 - 4:26 PM

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' starting lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Gomes is just getting a breather. Chris Gimenez will catch for right-hander Carlos Carrasco. Gomes has struggled all year, hitting just .184 with eight homers in 212 at-bats.
Jun 30 - 4:38 PM

Yan Gomes hit his eighth home run of the season Saturday against the Tigers.

The blast, a solo shot, was more or less an afterthought in a one-sided game, but it was consequential for Gomes, who hadn't homered since June 3. His struggles have persisted most of the year, as the backstop is hitting just .185/.222/.365 with 29 RBI and 21 runs scored this year. He is the owner off a modest five-game hitting streak in which he's 7-for-20 with two doubles, a homer, two RBI and five runs scored.

Yan Gomes (back) is in the Indians' lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

Gomes was held out of the lineup Friday after having a cyst in his lower back drained. He should be good to go moving forward.

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Friday.

He's just getting a breather. Chris Gimenez is behind the plate.
Jun 17 - 3:22 PM

Yan Gomes went 0-for-4 against the Royals on Wednesday, dropping his average to .167.

Gomes hasn't finished a game with a .200 average since April 29, but this is still as low as he's been in a month; he's in the midst of a 5-for-45 slump. Gomes' track record suggests that he's still going to bounce back, but the Indians have to be getting sick of waiting.
Jun 15 - 11:52 PM

Yan Gomes (groin) returned to action on Friday, going 0-for-4 in a victory over the Angels.

Gomes had been mercifully rested since Tuesday after suffering a testicular contusion. It has been a painful season for Gomes at the dish as well, slashing just .172/.208/.356 with seven homers and 27 RBI.
