On Saturday, with catcher Yan Gomes mired in a massive slump, the Indians made a "sacrifice" to Jobu a la the classic baseball film "Major League." They're going all they can to get their backstop going. A chicken from a fast food joint was the offering.

Here's the video of the ceremony:

Unfortunately, it appears the sacrifice to Jobu has angered the Baseball Gods. On Sunday, Gomes suffered a shoulder injury when he took a nasty spill at first base. He was trying to avoid the tag by Twins first baseman Kennys Vargas when Eduardo Nunez's throw pulled him off the bag. Here's the video:

Ouch. That doesn't look good. Gomes is a large man -- he's listed at 6-foot-2 and 215 lbs. -- and he came down hard on his shoulder. The team says he will be looked at by the doctor Monday.

I suppose the good news is the sacrifice to Jobu kinda worked. Earlier in the game Gomes snapped an 0 for 27 slump (0 for 27!) with a double. The ball hit pitcher Kyle Gibson and deflected away from the infielders and into the outfield. Lady luck was on Gomes' side for that one.

Gomez, 28, went into Sunday's game hitting .162/.196/.308 (28 OPS+) with eight home runs in 260 plate appearances. Cleveland is also without backup catcher Roberto Perez (thumb), though he may return before the end of the month.
