The Cleveland Indians and C Yan Gomes agreed to terms on a six-year deal worth $23 million Saturday, March 29, according to a source. The deal also includes two club options.
Fantasy Tip: The team is obviously happy with what they see from Gomes, and it has been customary for Cleveland to lock its long-term components into place since the mid-1990's. Gomes will take over as the everyday catcher this season, and fantasy owners can safely rely upon him as a low-end No. 1 receiver in all mixed formats.
