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

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.

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.
Tue, Sep 1, 2015 10:36:00 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.
Sat, Aug 22, 2015 10:08:00 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.
