Gomes (wrist) has resumed throwing recently less than a week after being ruled out for the remainder of the season, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes has responded well in his first week since fracturing his wrist but it's far too soon to know if he'll be able to make it back in time should the Indians make a lengthy postseason run.

Indians manager Terry Francona announced Saturday that Gomes would be out for six-to-eight weeks with a fractured wrist, which the catcher suffered in a rehab game Wednesday with Double-A Akron, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, this lengthy timetable essentially rules Gomes out for the season, a disappointing development for an Indians team that was banking on the backstop coming back after they weren't able to acquire Jonathan Lucroy at the trade deadline. Gomes had been out since mid-July with a separated shoulder, but was on the cusp of returning before sustaining the new injury while on a rehab assignment. With a Gomes return now off the table, the Tribe will continue to cast their lot with the tandem of Roberto Perez and Chris Gimenez behind the plate, neither of whom bring much to the table from an offensive standpoint.

Gomes (wrist, shoulder) has a non-displaced fracture of his right wrist.

EDGE Analysis

This is a tough pill to swallow, as there was speculation that Gomes would be able to return from the disabled list Friday. The 29-year-old is scheduled to see a specialist Friday night to determine if and when he can return to action, but this seems like a roadblock that could keep him out to the end of the season. Gomes' timetable will likely become more clear following his visit to the specialist.

Gomes (hand) will have an MRI on Thursday and it's unclear if he will be able to come off the DL on Friday, as was previously anticipated, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Paul Hoynes reports. "He got hit in the hand pretty good," manager Terry Francona said.

EDGE Analysis

He was hit in the right hand during a rehab game Wednesday, while making what was supposed to be one of his last rehab appearances before returning from a shoulder injury. Now, it seems like there's a chance his hand could be injured to the point that he will be forced to miss more time. More information should be available after Thursday's MRI.

Gomes (shoulder) was hit on the right hand during a rehab assignment with Double-A Akron on Wednesday, Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes was expected to rejoin the Indians on Friday but Hoynes indicates that his return could be pushed back pending the results of tests on his hand. The team should provide another update on his status when the results are returned.

Gomes (shoulder) is expected to come off the disabled list Friday, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes has been out since July 17 with a separated shoulder, but it appears that he's finally nearing his return. Gomes hasn't shown the ability to produce at the plate over the 71 games he's played this season, as he owns an awful .165/.198/.313 line and 26 percent strikeout rate.

Gomes (shoulder) will catch nine innings at Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

Gomes (shoulder) is scheduled to catch five innings at Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday night, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes has been on rehab with Columbus since Friday, but this will mark his first action behind the plate after previously serving only as the DH. The 29-year-old isn't eligible to return from the DL until September 16, so regardless of how he looks Wednesday, he'll likely make at least one or two more appearances before returning to Cleveland.

Gomes (shoulder) collected a pair of hits Monday and could see time at catcher over the weekend as his rehab assignment continues, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes (shoulder) will continue his rehab at Double-A Akron on Monday before possibly joining Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday and hopes to begin catching soon, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Indians will likely want Gomes to see some game action behind the plate during his rehab program but that will be dictated by how long Triple-A Columbus can advance in the playoffs. He's eligible to return from the DL on September 16.
