Yan Gomes will be sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks after being diagnosed with a moderate right MCL sprain.
It's a huge blow for the Indians, as they'll be without their Silver Slugger catcher likely until June. It appears that Gomes will treat the injury with rest rather than surgery. The Indians are high on Roberto Perez, who hit .305/.405/.517 at Triple-A last season and will now take over as the regular catcher. He's worth a look in deeper formats. Apr 12 - 1:43 PM

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

Gomes' MRI results aren't available yet, but obviously the injury is bad enough to where he's going to need, at minimum, a couple weeks of down time. Roberto Perez will handle the catching duties for the time being. The Indians didn't promote a catcher, so Carlos Santana would appear to be the club's backup behind the plate for now.

Yan Gomes was diagnosed with a right knee sprain Saturday after a nasty home-plate collision with Rajai Davis.

Gomes was in the middle of the plate when Davis slid into his right leg. An MRI is scheduled for Sunday. Losing the well-rounded 27-year-old catcher for an extended period of time would obviously be a big blow for the Indians. Roberto Perez is the backup in Cleveland.

Yan Gomes went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in the Indians' win over the Reds Thursday.

Gomes took Burke Badenhop deep in the fifth inning, capping off a five-run frame for the Tribe. The 25-year-old backstop is coming off of a very productive 2014 campaign, his first as an everyday player, and should be counted on for similar numbers going into 2015.

Yan Gomes hit a three-run homer Wednesday to help the Indians past the Royals 6-4.

The Indians remain alive, if only barely. Gomes' homer was his 21st, and it gave him 74 RBI. The only catchers with more homers are Devin Mesoraco (25), Brian McCann (23) and Evan Gattis (22). The only ones with more RBI are Buster Posey (86) and Mesoraco (78).

Yan Gomes drove in four runs in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Twins.

Gomes was locked in on Twins' starter Trevor May. He hit an RBI single in the third, then smashed a three-run homer a few innings later, sending May to the showers. Gomes now has 70 RBI and 20 home runs on the year for the Indians, who have won four in a row to keep their playoff chances alive. After hitting like a man on fire for July (.329/.367/.624) and August (.349/.369/.540), Gomes had been hitting like a man who just wanted to watch the leaves fall in September (.238/.242/.444). Then, Trevor May entered his life. Despite the slight cool-down this month, he's still slashing .288/.321/.484 in what has been a career year.

Yan Gomes homered, doubled and knocked in three runs Thursday against the Twins.

The homer was his first in 12 games since he returned from a concussion. Gomes has 18 homers and 62 RBI for the year, making him one of the game's best offensive catchers. He's no slouch behind the dish, either.

Yan Gomes (head) will be re-evaluated on Friday.

Gomes left Thursday's game with what was labeled illness at the time, but which actually turned out to be the ill effects of having been struck in the head by a deflected ball. Team doctors have not yet disclosed whether Gomes has a concussion, and the catcher himself declined comment after the game. Indians skipper Terry Francona said Gomes is already improving, which is the good news, but the symptoms were described as "concussion-like," which is the bad. Stay tuned.

Yan Gomes homered and finished 3-for-4 with three runs scored as the Indians came back to beat the Twins 7-5 on Tuesday.

Gomes hadn't scored since August 6 before Tuesday's three-run outburst. His solo home run in the second inning started the Indians on the comeback trail, and he came in on a two-run double in the sixth inning that gave the Tribe their first lead. The catcher is enjoying another strong year, batting .285/.325/.479 with 17 home runs and 53 RBI on the season.
