YAN GOMES RUMORS & GOSSIP

A Deeper Look Into the Indians Catchers

In 2014, there was a lot of confusion behind the plate on days that Yan Gomes didn’t start. The Indians began the year with none but Carlos Santana, who was also the starting third baseman, available as the reserve catcher, but it didn’t take long for that plan to fail. In addition, George Kottaras, Roberto Perez and Chris Gimenez picked up starts down the line with Perez eventually...

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...

Do the Indians have the best catching duo in the American League?

Yan Gomes admitted during Tribe Fest that he was leery the first half of last season about taking days off due to the Indians' lack of a consistent backup at catcher. Carlos Santana played in 10 games behind the plate, but that ended once he suffered a concussion in late May. George Kottaras was up briefly a couple times and had a two home-run game. It wasn't until early July though...

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 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...
