Yan Gomes (hand) made throws to second base on Thursday.
Gomes was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right hand just last weekend. Indians manager Terry Francona said that there's a "one percent chance" the catcher could return this season, adding that if anyone can beat the odds it would probably be Gomes. Realistically, though, it's obviously the longest of long shots that we'll see him again in 2016. Sep 22 - 5:35 PM

Date:

Indians manager Terry Francona said Saturday that Yan Gomes will miss 6-to-8 weeks with the non-displaced fracture in his right hand.

That will surely end his season. The 29-year-old backstop finishes a miserable 2016 campaign hitting .165/.198/.313 with eight homers and 32 RBI in 262 plate appearances. The good news is that he should be recovered and fully healthy heading into spring training.

Yan Gomes has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right hand.

He'll visit a specialist later Friday before the next step is determined, but it's hard to imagine it won't end his season. It's been a brutal 2016 for Gomes, who suffered the injury while on a rehab assignment following an AC joint separation in his right shoulder.
Sep 16 - 4:22 PM

Yan Gomes will undergo an MRI on his right hand.

Gomes was struck in that hand in the fifth inning of what was supposed to be his final minor league rehab game Wednesday with Double-A Akron. Indians manager Terry Francona had announced earlier in the day that Gomes would be activated off the disabled list Friday for the start of a three-game series at home against the Tigers. That definitely won't happen now. Gomes initially landed on the DL in mid-July with an AC joint separation in his right shoulder and could now need another week or more.
Sep 15 - 12:29 PM

Yan Gomes (shoulder) was hit in the right hand during Wednesday's rehab game for Double-A Akron.

Gomes was expected to be activated off the disabled list on Friday, but this might throw a wrench into that plan. The Indians will reevaluate the catcher on Thursday. He has been on the disabled list since the middle of July due to an AC joint separation of the right shoulder.
Sep 14 - 10:56 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona said that Yan Gomes (shoulder) will be activated from the 60-day disabled list on Friday.

Gomes is DHing for Double-A Akron as part of a rehab assignment on Wednesday. Barring a setback, he will return to the majors and serve as catcher when Corey Kluber takes the mound this Friday. The 29-year-old backstop was struggling to the tune of a .165/.198/.313 triple-slash in 249 at-bats prior to being sidelined by an AC joint separation of the right shoulder in mid-July.
Sep 14 - 9:48 PM

Yan Gomes (shoulder) went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's rehab game with Double-A Akron.

Gomes will serve as the designated hitter for Akron on Wednesday. He is on the comeback trail from an AC joint separation of the right shoulder suffered on July 17. The former Silver Slugger winner at catcher could return to major league action later this week or early next depending on how he is feeling.
Sep 14 - 4:23 PM

Yan Gomes (shoulder) is scheduled to catch on Wednesday and Thursday as he continues his rehab assignment at Triple-A Columbus.

Gomes served as designated hitter while starting out his rehab assignment at Double-A Akron. That the Indians feel comfortable shifting him to catcher while moving him up to Triple-A is a nice sign for his progress. Earlier this week, there was talk that he might initially DH with Columbus. Gomes is closing in on a major league return after suffering an AC joint separation in his right shoulder in mid-July.
Sep 7 - 4:40 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona said Monday that Yan Gomes (shoulder) might not be far away from catching on his minor league rehab assignment.

Gomes, who is making his way back from an AC joint separation in his right (throwing) shoulder, has made two starts out of the DH spot with Double-A Akron while going 2-for-6 with a double. He's scheduled to move up to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday, but will be eased into things as the DH before going back behind the plate. The 29-year-old was batting just .165/.198/.313 with eight homers and 32 RBI over 71 games prior to the injury, but he's hoping to make it back by mid-September.
Sep 5 - 5:11 PM

Yan Gomes (shoulder) will DH at Double-A Akron on Friday and then again on Sunday.

He should begin catching after that, assuming all goes well this weekend. Gomes has been on the disabled list since mid-July with an AC joint separation in his right (throwing) shoulder. He is eligible for activation September 16 and seems likely to return to the Indians on that exact date. Roberto Perez and Chris Gimenez have been sharing starts behind the plate in Cleveland.
Sep 1 - 10:30 AM

Yan Gomes (shoulder) is expected to begin a rehab assignment within the next week.

Gomes is on the mend from an AC joint separation in his shoulder suffered in mid-July. He has been playing catch and hitting in the cage. The 29-year-old backstop will be eligible to return from the 60-day disabled list on September 16 and all signs point to him being ready for activation around that date.
Aug 31 - 4:45 PM

Indians transferred C Yan Gomes from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Gomes is now eligible for activation on September 16, and he should be ready around that date. The catcher has been hitting and playing catch for over a week as he continues to rehab the AC joint separation in his right (throwing) shoulder.
Aug 31 - 3:15 PM

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.
Aug 22 - 7:01 PM

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.
Aug 11 - 4:42 PM

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.
