  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Taking seat Friday

    Gomes is absent from the lineup for Friday's contest against the Marlins.

    It's a routine day off for the veteran backstop. Miguel Amaya will do the catching for Jameson Taillon while Gomes takes a seat.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Another day off Tuesday

    Gomes is not in the Cubs' starting lineup Tuesday versus Arizona.

    Gomes will take a seat for a second straight contest as Miguel Amaya will draw another start behind the plate against the Diamondbacks. Gomes and Amaya appear to be locked into a pretty even timeshare behind the dish thus far in 2024.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Logs first homer of 2024

    Gomes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Padres.

    After going hitless in his first nine at-bats, Gomes has rebounded with a hit in three straight games. Tuesday's outing was his first multi-hit performance of the campaign, and the long ball was also his first. Gomes has been in a near 50-50 timeshare with Miguel Amaya behind the plate, but he could win some more work back if he can remain a reliable bat.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Not in lineup

    Gomes is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.

    Gomes popped his first home run of the season in Tuesday's 5-1 win but will get a breather a day later. Miguel Amaya will check in behind the plate in Wednesday's series finale.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Takes seat Sunday

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

    Gomes will rest after he was behind the dish for both of the past two days while going 2-for-7 with a double and a run scored. He's been part of more of a timeshare at catcher than anticipated early on this season, with Gomes making five starts to Miguel Amaya's four through the Cubs' first nine games.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: On bench again Wednesday

    Gomes is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest against the Rockies.

    The Cubs have now gone with Miguel Amaya at catcher in two straight games and three of the last four contests. Gomes still seems likely to ultimately receive the bulk of the starts behind the dish, but manager Craig Counsell evidently is liking what Amaya is bringing right now.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Sitting Tuesday

    Gomes isn't in the Cubs' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Gomes will get a day off Tuesday after going 0-for-9 with four strikeouts to begin the season. Miguel Amaya will fill in behind the plate and bat ninth.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Steady results in spring

    After going 0-for-2 in a Cactus League game against the Mariners on Friday, Gomes is batting .286 this spring.

    Gomes has only one extra-base hit so far in six spring games, though the .286 average is encouraging. The veteran catcher batted .308 for the Cubs last spring training, then went on to have a solid age-35 season, batting .267 and swatting 10 home runs across 116 games. His numbers may not jump off the page, but Gomes should be a solid complement to the younger Miguel Amaya this year, and both figure to see playing time.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Sitting out day game

    Gomes is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rockies.

    Gomes will get a breather after catching each of the previous three contests. Miguel Amaya will be behind the plate for Jameson Taillon.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Breather Sunday

    Gomes is not in the starting lineup Sunday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Gomes will get a breather after he caught all 13 innings in the Cubs' 7-6 loss to Arizona on Saturday. Miguel Amaya will take over behind the plate and bat ninth in the series finale.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Scores three times Saturday

    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.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Sitting out Wednesday

    Gomes is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Colorado, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    It's a day game after Gomes had caught each of the last four contests, so it's no surprise he's getting a breather. Miguel Amaya is behind the dish Wednesday.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Tallies three hits Monday

    Gomes went 3-for-4 with three RBI in a 5-4 win against the Rockies on Monday.

    All three of Gomes' hits were singles, but he was plenty productive. The backstop singled home a run in the sixth inning, then recorded a two-run knock in the ninth that turned a one-run Cubs deficit into a one-run lead. Gomes has three multi-hit efforts through 10 contests in September and is slashing .323/.344/.387 with six RBI so far this month.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Getting breather Friday

    Gomes is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Miguel Amaya will do the catching for Jameson Taillon in the afternoon tilt at Wrigley Field. Gomes had started three of the last four behind the plate for the Cubs.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Collects three more hits Tuesday

    Gomes went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 11-8 win over the Giants.

    After Miguel Amaya picked up a start Sunday, Gomes has returned to go 5-for-7 across the first two games of an important series with San Francisco. The veteran catcher isn't an elite offensive option, but he's been solid with a .275 average and .741 OPS across 97 games. Gomes should continue to start most days down the stretch with Amaya available to spell him.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Gets Wednesday off

    Gomes is not in the Cubs' lineup Wednesday against the Giants.

    Since his last game on the bench, Gomes is 6-for-16 with three RBI in five games. Wednesday is an expected rest day for the catcher with Miguel Amaya starting behind the plate.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Two hits, RBI in Monday's win

    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.
