Cubs' Yan Gomes: Remaining in Chicago
The Cubs exercised Gomes' $6 million club option for 2024 on Sunday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.
Gomes has been a steady hand behind the plate for Chicago over the past two years, and he'll be back again for a third season. The 36-year-old had a .723 OPS last year in 116 games following the departure of Willson Contreras, and he'll likely open 2024 as the Cubs' top catcher.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Yan Gomes: Hits grand slam Saturday
Gomes went 1-for-3 with a walk, a grand slam and five total RBI in Saturday's win over the Brewers.
Gomes reached the 10-homer plateau in style, as he blasted a grand slam in the first inning to get the Cubs going. The veteran catcher has been a pleasant surprise this season, as his 63 RBI are his most since he tallied a career-best 74 RBI back in 2014. It remains to be seen what the 36-year-old's role will be in 2024, though he appears to still have a little left in the tank based on this year's performance.... See More ... See Less

Gomes went 2-for-6 with a double and three runs scored in Saturday's extra-innings loss to the Diamondbacks.
The Cubs and Diamondbacks ended up playing 13 innings, with Gomes behind the plate for all of them. He also contributed offensively as his strong campaign continued. The veteran is now batting .272 with a .725 OPS. Both figures would be his highest since the shortened 2020 season. In terms of full seasons, you have to go back to 2018 to find a better OPS and 2014 to find a better average for Gomes, who should continue to see heavy work as Chicago looks to clinch a playoff spot....

Gomes went 2-for-3 with a double and a RBI in Monday's 5-0 win over the Giants.
Gomes returned to the lineup after getting a breather Sunday, and the veteran didn't skip a beat. He's been solid this year with a .269 batting average and .729 OPS, which are up significantly from the .235 average and .625 OPS he posted last season. Miguel Amaya should continue to spell Gomes some down the stretch, but with the Cubs fighting for a playoff spot, they'll probably use Gomes as much as possible given his production to this point....
