Gomes (shoulder) played catch at 100 feet and increased his hitting volume in the batting cage Monday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is a big step in the right direction for the Brazilian, as he is on track to return in early September. Gomes was struggling before suffering the separated AC joint with a .165 batting average in 262 plate appearances.

Gomes (shoulder) will travel with the team on its upcoming road trip but a return date is still unclear, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes' most optimistic return date was initially set for the first part of September but he may be slipping a bit beyond that as he's only recently begun to participate in some light baseball activities.

Gomes (shoulder) has begun to participate in light baseball activities, but still has a ways to go before returning to the field, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes landed on the DL on July 18, and will still likely be out another couple weeks as he has only just began baseball activities Thursday. He will need time to go on a rehab assignment, and with a separated AC joint in his right shoulder, the team will need to be cautious with him as he could potentially be out another month. Roberto Perez and Chris Gimenez have been filling in behind the plate, and will continue to do so until he returns.

Gomes (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, Ohio.com reports. He's expected to miss between four and eight weeks

EDGE Analysis

As anticipated, Gomes will hit the DL with a separated AC joint in his right shoulder, which he sustained during Sunday's game against Minnesota. The catcher will avoid surgery but is still expected to miss at least a month and potentially as much as eight weeks. He's hitting just .165 with 32 RBI on the year but remained a valuable contributor for his work with the pitching staff. To replace Gomes, the Indians activated Roberto Perez from the disabled list Monday, and he'll team with Chris Gimenez to handle backstop duties over the next several weeks.

Manager Terry Francona indicated after Sunday's game that Gomes will be placed on the disabled list with a separated shoulder, Zack Meisel of The Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering he left the field in a cast and on a cart, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the veteran backstop will land on the DL. The team could reportedly activate Roberto Perez prior to Monday's contest against the Royals, leaving he and Chris Gimenez as the options behind the plate in Gomes' absence.

Gomes has suffered a right shoulder injury and will head back to Cleveland for further evaluation.

EDGE Analysis

If there's any silver lining in this situation, it's that he didn't suffer a lower-body injury, which easily could have happened based on how Gomes appeared to fall. There appears to be little information known at the moment, but looks for Gomes to at least miss a few days in a best-case scenario.

Gomes was carted off the field in the fifth inning of Sunday's game against the Twins after he violently tripped while running out a groundball, suffering an apparent right shoulder injury in the process, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

After breaking an 0-for-27 slump in the third inning with a double, it didn't take long for Gomes' tremendously disappointing season to take another turn for the worse. While it looks like Gomes was able to avoid a serious lower-body injury since he was able to stand and walk with assistance to the cart, team trainers immediately placed the catcher's right arm in a sling. An official timetable for Gomes' injury won't be known until the Indians' medical staff is able to conduct tests, but this certainly looked like the sort of injury that would require a DL stint. If that ends up being the case, Chris Gimenez would be next in line to take over as the Tribe's primary catcher.
