Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks with his injury.
Fantasy Tip: Gomes has been in the midst of a really tough season, so perhaps this is a blessing in disguise for his owners. However, Roberto Perez and Chris Gimenez -- who will be splitting time with Gomes out -- are not the answer, as both swing very limited bats and each carries limited potential. It's too bad game-calling abilities don't factor into fantasy, as both would be worth a pickup in that case.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes (shoulder) was diagnosed with an AC joint separation of his right shoulder, but will not require surgery, the organization announced Monday, July 18.
Fantasy Tip: Gomes is expected to miss four to eight weeks, so given his .165 batting average, he should be replaced in all fantasy settings. Look for Roberto Perez and Chris Gimenez to split starts behind the dish, but neither are anything more than low-end options in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues.
