  • Gomes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two total RBI in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks. Gomes hit a homer in the fourth inning, his second of the season, to tie the score at 1-1. He then singled home a run in the ninth inning to put the Cubs ahead 2-1 in a game they ended up winning 4-2. Gomes is behind Willson Contreras in the catching pecking order, though both players have logged some time at DH to get their bats in the lineup at the same time.

  • Gomes is starting at designated hitter and batting third in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. The Cubs are loading up on right-handed bats against southpaw Clayton Kershaw, and it helps that Gomes has one career home run against Kershaw in four at-bats. The veteran catcher is slashing .206/.250/.353 with one home run and two RBI across 12 games so far this season.

  • Gomes went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 9-1 loss to Milwaukee on Saturday. Gomes was the only player to get to Milwaukee starter Eric Lauer on Saturday as his second inning solo shot proved to be Chicago's only run. After beginning the season 5-for-13, the veteran backstop went hitless in his next 15 at-bats prior to Saturday's performance. Gomes' seasonal line now sits at .217/.250/.304 through nine games.

  • Gomes is starting at catcher and batting sixth in Sunday's game against the Rockies. Willson Contreras will serve as the DH in the series finale Sunday afternoon, which opens up a spot for Gomes behind the plate. This will be just the third appearance of the season for the veteran, who has two hits in eight at-bats. Gomes has some appeal as a bargain option in daily leagues when he starts, but his playing time doesn't move the needle much in standard formats.

  • Gomes will start at catcher and bat sixth Thursday against the Rockies. Gomes will crack the lineup for only the second time in six games this season while No. 1 backstop Willson Contreras gets a breather. The Cubs have been running out a designated-hitter platoon of Rafael Ortega and Clint Frazier, so Gomes' opportunities are expected to remain limited while Contreras continues to play exclusively at catcher.
