Top Yan Gomes News

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Joins Cubs on two-year deal

    Gomes agreed to a two-year, $13 million contract with the Cubs on Tuesday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

    It's a bit unusual to see the Cubs give a multi-year deal to a 34-year-old when they don't appear to be close to playoff contention, but they could see Gomes as a potential mentor for their next wave of pitchers or perhaps as someone they can flip at the deadline. The veteran has been a slightly below-average hitter for most of his career, with his 93 wRC+ last season nearly matching his career wRC+ of 91. That's an unexciting mark but an adequate one for a backstop. He doesn't appear to have a path for more than backup at-bats unless Willson Contreras is traded, but he could do enough in that small role to matter in deep, two-catcher formats.

  • Athletics' Yan Gomes: Plates pair in win

    Gomes went 2-for-5 with a two-run double in a win over the Tigers on Thursday.

    The veteran backstop's third-inning two-bagger plated Tony Kemp and Mark Canha to extend the Athletics' lead to 7-0 at the time. Gomes has three total RBI over his last pair of starts and should continue enjoying fairly regular playing time for the balance of the regular season.

  • Athletics' Yan Gomes: Productive in start

    Gomes went 2-for-4 with a run in a win over the Yankees on Sunday.

    The veteran backstop has hit safely in five of his last six starts, a span during which he's now recorded a trio of multi-hit efforts. Gomes is a more complete offensive player than fellow catcher Sean Murphy, but both should continue to see regular playing time, with the latter occasionally slotting in as a designated hitter as well.
