Gomes is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against Boston.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Chris Gimenez will take over catching duties Saturday with Gomes getting the afternoon off. After a brutally slow start to the season, Gomes has started to turn things around at the dish over the last week, slashing .286/.304/.667 with a pair of home runs. He figures to rejoin the lineup for Sunday's series finale against Rick Porcello.

Gomes continued his recent hot streak, going 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in the Indians' blowout victory against the Reds.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gomes has had a rough season at the plate thus far, and it has been especially difficult in May, where his three home runs make up a full half of his hits for the month. Gomes' six homers in 2016 gives him half of his 2015 total already, but at this rate it'll take a while for his batting average to reach the .231 mark he set a season ago, let alone the .278 he hit the year before that.

Gomes went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Friday's 7-6 victory over the Twins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

All three hits that Gomes has managed against Twins starter Ricky Nolasco over his nine career at-bats have been homers, with the long ball Friday representing his first since April 25 against this same Twins squad. The gopher ball was only Gomes' third hit in 33 May at-bats however, as he's posting an atrocious .091/.167/.212 line for the month.

Gomes is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gomes hit his third home run, a solo blast, in Monday's loss to the Twins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gomes continues to struggle with strikeouts, as he logged his 15th in as many games Monday night and is hitting just .245. But the power is there, as Gomes now has two homers in his past two games and six extra-base hits on the season to fuel a sharp .472 slugging percentage.
