Gomes, Indians finalize $23M, 6-year deal

Catcher Yan Gomes and the Cleveland Indians have completed a $23 million, six-year contract after a breakout season last year.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Catcher Yan Gomes and the Cleveland Indians have completed a $23 million, six-year contract after a breakout season last year.

Gomes’ deal includes club options for 2020 and ‘21. He reached agreement on the new deal during the weekend and needed to pass a physical to finalize it.

Gomes hit .294 with 11 homers and 38 RBIs in 88 games last season, his first with the Indians.

The 26-year-old — the first Brazilian-born player in the majors — began last season at Triple-A Columbus, but after being brought up in April he stayed the rest of the year and was a major contributor as the Indians made the playoffs for the first time since 2007.

Gomes was acquired from Toronto on Nov. 2, 2012.
