  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Remains on bench for nightcap

    Gomes isn't starting the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

    Gomes didn't take the field during the first game of Thursday's twin bill, and he'll remain on the bench for the nightcap. P.J. Higgins is starting behind the plate while Willson Contreras serves as the designated hitter.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: On bench for Game 1 of twin bill

    Gomes is out of the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Cardinals.

    Gomes is absent from the lineup for the front end of the twin bill, but expect him to check in behind the dish for Game 2 while top backstop Willson Contreras either heads to the bench or serves as the Cubs' designated hitter.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Not starting Wednesday

    Gomes is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Willson Contreras is behind the plate Wednesday and Rafael Ortega is getting a turn as the Cubs' designated hitter, closing off both of Gomes' avenues to starting roles. Though the Cubs' decision not to deal Contreras ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline is a negative development for Gomes' playing-time outlook, Gomes should still be in line for at least a handful of starts per week.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Sitting out series finale

    Gomes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Gomes had caught three of the Cubs' last four games, but he'll take a seat in the series finale while Willson Contreras checks in behind the plate after having previously seen more opportunities at designated hitter coming out of the All-Star break. Contreras is a prime candidate to get moved ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, so Gomes could soon have the No. 1 catcher's role all to himself.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Not in Monday's lineup

    Gomes isn't starting Monday's game against the Pirates.

    Gomes homered twice during Sunday's win over the Phillies, but he'll get a breather as the Cubs return home Monday. Willson Contreras is starting behind the dish while Frank Schwindel serves as the designated hitter.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Homers twice in series finale

    Gomes went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Phillies.

    Gomes put the Cubs on the board with his solo blast in the top of the third inning, and he extended the team's lead with another solo homer in the next frame. The 35-year-old didn't appear in any of the last three games since Willson Contreras has been used more as a catcher than as a designated hitter recently. However, Gomes will likely be in line for significantly more playing time if Contreras is ultimately dealt prior to the trade deadline in early August.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Starting Sunday

    Gomes is starting at catcher and batting seventh in Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    Gomes sat out the last three games but will enter the lineup with Willson Contreras getting a breather in the series finale. Gomes might get a little more fantasy value if Contreras is traded, though the former's .542 OPS doesn't inspire a ton of confidence even if he's seeing more playing time.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Remains out of lineup

    Gomes isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Phillies.

    Gomes is out of the lineup for a third consecutive game since Willson Contreras is starting behind the dish once again Saturday. With Contreras at catcher, Patrick Wisdom is serving as the designated hitter while David Bote enters the lineup at third base.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Out of lineup Friday

    Gomes will sit Friday versus the Phillies.

    Gomes will be on the bench for the second consecutive game as Willson Contreras draws the start at catcher. Frank Schwindel will take over at designated hitter while Alfonso Rivas enters the lineup at first base and bats eighth against Philadelphia.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Gets rest Sunday

    Gomes is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Mets.

    Gomes will get a day off after he went 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI and a walk in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader. Willson Contreras will start at catcher while Ian Happ starts at designated hitter and bats third in the series finale.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Drives in two in nightcap

    Gomes went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and two RBI in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.

    Gomes sat for the matinee but returned and played well in the nightcap. The veteran is splitting time at catcher with Willson Contreras, and both players are also seeing time at DH. Contreras remains a prime trade candidate, however, so Gomes could see his playing time increase assuming he's not also traded. He's posted a middling .213/.231/.311 slash line with three home runs and 12 RBI through 51 games, so he doesn't project as a great fantasy asset even if his role grows.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Takes seat for matinee

    Gomes isn't in the lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.

    Gomes started Thursday's series opener against the Mets and went 1-for-4. However, he'll get a breather for Saturday's matinee while Willson Contreras starts behind the dish with Patrick Wisdom serving as the designated hitter.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Not starting Wednesday

    Gomes isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Orioles.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Sitting Sunday

    Gomes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

    P.J. Higgins will step in behind the dish for the series finale after Gomes caught each of the Cubs' last three games while going 0-for-9. Though top backstop Willson Contreras appears to have moved past a hamstring injury, he still may see ample starts as a designated hitter during the final week before the All-Star break, which should continue to open up reps at catcher for Gomes.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Riding pine Wednesday

    Gomes isn't in the lineup Wednesday against Milwaukee.

    Gomes went 2-for-8 with a run and a strikeout over his last two games, but he'll get a breather Wednesday. P.J. Higgins is starting behind the plate and batting seventh.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Sitting Sunday

    Gomes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    Gomes will retreat to the bench for the series finale after he started in each of Chicago's last three games at catcher or designated hitter while going 1-for-9 with a double, an RBI and a run. P.J. Higgins will check in for Gomes behind the dish while Willson Contreras serves as the Cubs' DH.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Serving as DH on Saturday

    Gomes is serving as the DH and batting seventh in Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

    Gomes will be making his fourth straight start, as the Cubs are using both him and Willson Contreras together regularly. Despite the playing time, Gomes hasn't been a great fantasy option with a .606 OPS and just three home runs and eight RBI across 35 games.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: On bench for second straight

    Gomes is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game in Pittsburgh.

    Gomes will sit for the second game in a row and looks like he'll be more of a part-time player after he received more work behind the plate last week while manager David Ross showed more of a willingness to deploy Willson Contreras as a designated hitter. Contreras should still pick up starts as a DH every now and then, but Ross appears content to rotate a number of players at that spot in the lineup rather than reserving it strictly for Contreras or Gomes. Ian Happ will handle the non-defensive role Tuesday while Contreras starts behind the plate.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Not in Monday's lineup

    Gomes isn't starting Monday against the Pirates.
