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.

Gomes was held out of the lineup on Saturday and Sunday due to mild stiffness in his neck. The 27-year-old catcher is batting seventh in his return to action Monday.

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.
Jul 22 - 11:52 PM

Yan Gomes went 3-for-4 with a double and three runs scored as the Indians took the first game of Saturday's doubleheader from the Tigers in Detroit.

Gomes performed as one of the better hitting catchers in the league during the first half of the season. With the three-hit effort, the Brazilian backstop is now slashing .269/.314/.442 to go along with 12 homers and 36 RBI.
Jul 19 - 4:32 PM

Yan Gomes was the offensive star for the Indians Sunday, notching an RBI single and a two-run homer in a win over the White Sox.

He drove in all three runs for the Tribe, with his go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning representing the winning run. Gomes' .261/.306/.436 batting line in the first half isn't anything to write home about, but he's slugged 12 homers while driving in 36 runs.
Jul 13 - 4:24 PM

Yan Gomes doubled and smashed a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the Royals.

He had one of two longballs in the second inning for the Tribe (Carlos Santana had the other). Gomes now has 10 dingers on the season, with three of them coming over his last eight games. He's sporting a .269/.312/.436 batting line this season for the Tribe.
Jul 6 - 4:18 PM

Yan Gomes hit his ninth homer of the year Saturday in the victory over the Mariners.

He also committed his 10th error, which is a ridiculous total for a catcher in a half-season of play. Still, there's no sign that he's about to lose any playing time. He hasn't hit quite as well as he did last year, but with a .267 average, nine homers and 28 RBI so far, he's been a solid AL-only fantasy catcher and a quality option in two-catcher mixed leagues.
Jun 29 - 1:00 AM

Yan Gomes went 2-for-6 with a three-run home run as the Indians clobbered the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Gomes ripped a three-run home run off of Neil Wagner in the ninth inning, giving the Indians a 15-2 lead at the time. The blast is Gomes' sixth of the season and he now has three in the first two weeks of May after hitting three in all of April. Despite the mediocre start, Gomes is now slashing a respectable .269/.313/.487.
May 14 - 10:57 PM

Yan Gomes went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored against the Rays on Sunday.

Gomes sixth-inning homer, a solo shot, was his fifth of the season. The catcher is batting .264/.305/.473 on the season as the Indians' primary catcher.
May 11 - 6:48 PM

Yan Gomes went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's walk-off win against the Twins.

Gomes hit a solo shot to left field off of Twins starter Ricky Nolasco, his fourth of the season. Gomes, who signed a six-year extension with the Tribe back in March, hasn't been as productive as he was last season, currently the author of a .255/.295/.459 slash line along with 12 RBI, but there's still plenty of time for him to pick things up.
May 7 - 10:18 PM

Indians activated C Yan Gomes from paternity leave.

Gomes is in the Indians' lineup Monday after being away from the team on Saturday and Sunday for the birth of his child. The 26-year-old catcher has hit .261 with a .741 OPS, three homers, and 10 RBI in 26 games this season.
