Indians | Yan Gomes, Chris Johnson not in

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 12:00:25 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes and 3B Chris Johnson are not in the starting lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. C Roberto Perez is behind the plate and batting seventh, while 2B Michael Martinez draws into the lineup in left field and is hitting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey.

Fantasy Tip: Duffey has been very impressive in the last month for the Twins. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Martinez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) are nothing more than desperation plays as salary cap relief.

Indians | Yan Gomes out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 10:36:58 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not starting Sunday, Sept. 27, against the Kansas City Royals. C Roberto Perez is starting in place of Gomes and batting ninth against Royals SP Chris R. Young.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is hitting .333 in the past week, but he has a .194 average against Kansas City and a .250 mark against Young so the team is playing the percentages and giving Gomes a day off from catching. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has had no luck against Young and should be left on the bench.

Indians | Yan Gomes relegated to the bench

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 14:35:25 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 25. C Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and seasonal owners should view him as nothing more than a cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only option. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) owns an underwhelming .211 batting average and .374 slugging percentage against righties this season, and he doesn't project favorably for FantasyScore contests Friday.

Indians | Yan Gomes catching Saturday

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 12:36:00 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes will bat sixth against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Saturday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has struggled in September, batting .196 with two home runs and six RBIs. He is also hitless in three career at-bats versus Rodon, so FantasyScore owners may want to avoid using him tonight.

Indians | No Yan Gomes against White Sox

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 13:41:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 18. C Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Friday.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a tough season for Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) who is reeling through a miserable 16-for-93 stretch over his past 25 games. He cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format. Facing Sale ($8,900, 17.8% of cap), Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) checks out as an extremely risky play at FantasyScore Friday.

Indians | No Yan Gomes vs. White Sox

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 15:05:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 9. C Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Between injuries and poor play, it has been a disappointing season for the backstop. Gomes has bounce-back potential for 2016, though. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) owns a .162/.311/.189 slash line over 14 games since the All-Star break and is a desperation play in all fantasy formats, and especially at FantasyScore.

Indians | Yan Gomes not in starting lineup Saturday

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 14:21:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not starting Saturday, Sept. 5, against the Detroit Tigers. C Roberto Perez is in Gomes' place and hitting eighth against Tigers SP Alfredo Simon.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has no hits in seven career at-bats against Simon, which is why the switch is likely occurring. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has a .204 batting average against the right, so he carries little FantasyScore value.

Indians | Yan Gomes draws out of the lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:15:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. C Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: While Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has hit four home runs and drove in 18 runs in August, they've come with a .207/.280/.390 slash line. The backstop has been feast or famine of late and an overall disappointment for the season. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday.

Indians | Yan Gomes has grand slam

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 00:18:55 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes had a grand slam and drove in a career-high five runs Saturday, Aug. 29, as the Indians broke open the game and beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 8-3.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has had a .111 average in the past week and a .203 mark for August, so a game like this should help Gomes snap out of it a bit. Use Gomes in FantasyScore primarily against the right, as he has seven home runs out of nine against righties.

Indians | Yan Gomes sitting out

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 08:10:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Luis Severino Saturday, Aug. 22. C Roberto Perez will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting only .220 in limited playing time this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.
