Gomes is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays.

Gomes went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Gomes didn't bat in the ninth due to Terry Francona opting to throw a left-handed batter against Brad Boxberger. If Friday's day off is counted as rest for the catcher, it's likely Gomes doesn't rest again for the next four games or so given how the Indians have handled him and backup Roberto Perez.

Gomes (neck) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Rays and will bat sixth.

Gomes left Thursday's game due to neck stiffness, and the issue forced him out of the lineup Friday. The fact that he's going straight back to his catching duties, rather than DH'ing, indicates that Gomes is back to healthy and the neck stiffness isn't a reason for concern.
