Indians relive 10th-inning fallout from Game 7 of 2016 World Series

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Yan Gomes knows. All the Indians do. A few inches here, a few inches there, and the narrative of World Series Game 7 — culminating with what the Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo called “the best rain delay of all time” — might have been different. “A story can be built on that,” Gomes says, referring to the Cubs’ now-legendary meeting during the 17-minute...

Indians boast two catchers capable of starting

Yan Gomes injures shoulder day after sacrifice to Jobu

In an attempt to break out of a season-long slump, the Cleveland Indians sacrificed a chicken to Jobu on behalf of catcher Yan Gomes on Saturday. On Sunday, it became apparent that Jobu did not appreciate that sacrifice. As we told you Saturday, the .163-hitting Gomes sacrificed a fast food chicken to Jobu in the hopes of turning his season around (video here). It didn’t work...

Cleveland Indians catcher Yan Gomes off to a very rough start

Elite defense makes him worthy of a starting job, but offense like this makes it nearly impossible for him to be more than an average player. With the usual caveats about it still being very early in the season, it's worth pointing out that Yan Gomes is off to a terrible start at the plate for the Indians. In his first 12 games, Gomes is batting an anemic .220/.233/.341, with a wRC...

Looking Back: Gomes Delivers a Grand Moment on His Jersey Night

For the most part, 2015 was a year Yan Gomes would probably like to put pretty far in the past and have it remembered simply as a fluke. It was a pretty forgettable year for a guy who had burst out onto the scene as one of the game’s better hitting catchers in 2013 and 2014. However, this past season went off the rails in the first week of the campaign. In Cleveland’s sixth game...

Burning River Infirmary: Yan Gomes Will Return To The House

After a short rehab trip to Lake County and now in Columbus, he will certainly be ready by next week to rejoin the big league club. “It hasn’t felt like a month,” Gomes said of his time on the DL with a MCL sprain. “It definitely feels faster than what it’s been...
