YAN GOMES RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Price is Right: Yan Gomes set to deliver value again in 2015

A year ago this week I shared a post advocating for Yan Gomes as a solid value play at the Catcher position, with an ADP of C12 in early mock drafts. By now we all know Gomes delivered solid value on that price tag, and his 2015 draft day cost has risen considerably as a result. He finished 2014 as fantasy baseball’s 4th best catcher, with a .278 average and 21 home runs with 135...

Gomes Homer Sets Up KC Showdown; Indians 7, Twins 3

Now Cleveland is back in Minnesota, trying to sneak into the postseason through the back door.

Yan Gomes, Best Catcher in Baseball?

Yan Gomes has had a phenomenal season. I was a touch pessimistic, projecting a .273/16/63 line this year, a line which he’s nearly reach already this season, .285/16/52. numberFire wonders whether Gomes offensive production, combined with his defensive dominance, makes him the best catcher in baseball. On the matter, they wrote this: According to Fantasy Pros, which compiles fantasy...

Gomes Settling In Behind Plate

Cleveland Indians starting catcher Yan Gomes looks as though he has settled in behind the plate, which was not quite the case through the early portion of this season. Players around the league are getting a harsh reminder: You don’t run on Yan. The Indians signed the relatively unknown Gomes to a six-year, $23 million contract extension just prior to the season in a deal that...

Gomes returning to form in the field

CLEVELAND -- No one could have gotten of to a worse start fielding than Yan Gomes. In the first 28 games he played, the Indians catcher committed nine errors, had four passed balls and opponents stole 18 of 23 bases. Since early May though, Gomes has started to look more like he did last year, when he was one of the top catchers in the American League in getting opposing baserunners...

Gomes Excited for New Role

The Cleveland Indians open the 2014 season with new expectations despite many questions. The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Yan Gomes no longer a 'Goon'?

Last season, the Indians' bench players went above and beyond what was expected of them on the field. They made a name for themselves as the team's super-subs and quickly became fan favorites. In the dugout, having to spend a lot of time together on the Tribe's bench, the group bonded and eventually dubbed themselves the 'Goon Squad' - an instant hit with fans. The group includes...
