Yan Gomes makes Keith Law’s “Exceeded Expectations” List

Michael Brantley may garner a few MVP votes. Corey Kluber should be the 2014 AL Cy Young winner.

Gomes was just a guy — as opposed to a #GUY — when Toronto shipped him and Mike Aviles to Cleveland for Esmil Rogers after...

Then & Now: Yan Gomes

Yan Gomes had a brilliant performance for the Indians in yesterday's Spring Training contest as the right-handed hitting catcher socked a home run, a double and recorded five RBI.
