Gomes is not in the lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS against the Yankees on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes will give way to Roberto Perez for the series opener, as the Indians begin the quest to defend their American League title. Over the course of the last few weeks, Perez and Gomes have each been splitting time behind the plate, and will likely continue to do so throughout the playoffs.

Gomes is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes will take a seat for the second straight contest as him and Roberto Perez continue to split time behind the dish. He's started 11 of the Indians' 22 games this month, and should continue to share duties with Perez in the final week.

Gomes went 3-for-5 with two homers and four RBI Saturday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes connected on his 12th and 13th bombs of the season in the latter innings when the game was already out of hand. Despite his outstanding game, his .230/.305/.391 slash line has been disappointing for fantasy managers.

Gomes is out of the lineup Friday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Friday will mark the fourth time over the last five games that Gomes has been withheld from the starting lineup. Since the start of September, Gomes has appeared in just 10 of Cleveland's 20 games. Roberto Perez will draw another start behind the dish as Gomes returns to the bench.

Gomes is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes will head to the bench for a third straight game as Roberto Perez draws another start behind the dish in his stead. There has been no word of any injury at this point, so it's possible manager Terry Francona is simply riding the hotter bat. The 30-year-old backstop is hitting .250/.270/.361 with one homer in 36 at-bats this month, while Perez is slashing .314/.368/.743 with four homers in 35 at-bats over the same stretch.

Gomes is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes was behind the plate for the Indians' AL record-tying 20th consecutive win a night earlier, so he'll take a seat and give way to Roberto Perez behind the plate for the afternoon affair. The improved offense of Gomez and Perez has played a major part in the Tribe's lengthy win streak, with Gomes hitting .311 with three home runs, 10 RBI and nine runs over the club's last 20 games.

Gomes is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes will head to the bench after starting two of the past three games behind the plate, including a 2-for-5 day during Thursday's win over the White Sox. In his place, Roberto Perez will handle the catching duties.

Gomes is out of the lineup Monday against Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes will take a seat for a second straight day while Roberto Perez handles the backstop duties. The latter has been heating up at the dish, and with Francisco Mejia part of the expanded rosters, Gomes may very well see his playing time cut significantly down the stretch.

Gomes is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Gomes is simply getting a breather for the day game after a night game, allowing Roberto Perez to pick up a start behind the plate. The Indians recalled top catching prospect Francisco Mejia on Friday when rosters expanded, but he has yet to start in any of the Tribe's four games since his promotion and doesn't look like he's a serious threat to Gomes' spot atop the depth chart just yet.

Gomes is out of the lineup for Game 1 of the Indians' doubleheader Wednesday against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Roberto Perez will handle the catching duties in the second game of the series, but it's fully expected that Gomes will be behind the dish for the nightcap Wednesday. Gomes still retains the top spot on the depth chart at catcher, but those hoping for him to reemerge as a high-end fantasy option this season have been sorely disappointing. He's batting just .221 on the campaign, though his .307 on-base percentage represents more than a 100-point upgrade from his dismal 2016 season.
