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.
Jun 11 - 8:48 AM

Indians manager Terry Francona said that Yan Gomes (groin) is "still sore."

Poor, poor Yan Gomes suffered a testicular contusion after getting hit by a foul-tip down south on Tuesday. He underwent an ultrasound that night and was not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mariners. Chris Gimenez earned the start in his place and will probably see the majority of AB's for however long Gomes needs to nurse the tragic injury.

Yan Gomes was sent to a local hospital in Seattle late Tuesday night for an ultrasound of his groin.

Gomes got struck in a bad place by a foul tip in the second inning of Tuesday's loss to the Mariners. The initial diagnosis was a testicular contusion, but the Indians want to be sure he suffered no other major damage. "I don’t think he's probably having the best night of his life," manager Terry Francona told reporters after Tuesday's game. Chris Gimenez will probably start behind the plate Wednesday.

Yan Gomes has been diagnosed with a testicular contusion.

Yikes. Gomes was struck in the groin by a foul tip Tuesday in the bottom of the second inning. Chris Gimenez took over at catcher and might have to finish out this four-game Monday-Thursday series in Seattle.
Jun 7 - 11:55 PM

Yan Gomes left Tuesday night's game against the Mariners after taking a foul tip to the groin.

Chris Gimenez came on to catch with one out in the bottom of the second inning. Gomes did not make a plate appearance in the game. He's batting .176/.213/.365 this year.
Jun 7 - 10:51 PM

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.

He'll take a seat in favor of Chris Gimenez who is batting ninth against Ian Kennedy on Saturday. Gomes has been a tremendous disappointment at the dish this season, slashing just .174/.212/.361 with seven homers and 27 RBI in 155 at-bats.
Jun 4 - 3:32 PM

Yan Gomes wore glasses in Monday's game against the Rangers.

Gomes, who was previously wearing contacts, has been thinking about making the change since the spring. It didn't help him at the plate Monday, as he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout and now owns an ugly .175/.211/.357 batting line through 38 games.
May 30 - 10:48 PM

Yan Gomes is absent from the Indians' lineup Friday.

It appears to be a simple day off. Chris Gimenez will catch in Gomes' place.
May 27 - 3:24 PM

Yan Gomes is out of the Indians' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the White Sox.

Chris Gimenez will start at catcher and bat eighth versus Chicago lefty Chris Sale. Gomes has six home runs and 21 RBI in 34 games this season, but he's sitting on a rough .173/.207/.362 overall batting line.
May 24 - 7:03 PM

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Thursday against the Reds.

Instead it will be Chris Gimenez behind the plate. It appears to be a simple maintenance day for Gomes, who is hitting just .183. At least Gomes has found his power stroke, homering in three of his last five outings.
May 19 - 4:23 PM

Yan Gomes went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in Monday’s 15-6 win over the Reds.

Gomes launched a three-run homer in the sixth inning before adding a sacrifice fly one inning later. After homering just three times over his first 100 plate appearances, the 28-year-old has gone deep in each of his last three games. It’s an encouraging sign, but he’s still batting just .179/.212/.387 overall.
