Santana to be reevaluated Tuesday

Gomes signs long term deal

After Cleveland Indians Catcher Yan Gomes had his breakout season in his sophomore year, management wanted to lock him down into a long term deal and Gomes had no qualms with that. Gomes made it official and inked a six-year, $23 million contract Monday.

“It goes into what it means to be in this organization. You’ve got younger guys like ourselves just wanting to be here,” Gomes said. “We’re potentially signing a big amount of our careers. There’s not another place I would want to be with, especially from the top to the bottom here. It’s the organization you want to be with.”

The deal also includes options for the 2020 and 21 seasons which could kick up the deal to $48 million.

Gomes hit .294, had 11 homers and and 38 RBI’s in 88 games last season, his first with the Indians.

“This is the organization I want to be with, that actually made it pretty easy,” Gomes said before the scheduled opener in rain-soaked Oakland. “I’m so thankful for that. My wife and I are excited to be Cleveland Indians for a while now. … We got a little taste of the postseason last year. That’s what we play for.”

The Cleveland Indians

The Cleveland Indians have been a Major League baseball team since their beginnings in 1901. Their name was chosen in 1914 based on the common nickname given them of the “Tribe” or the “Wahoos”. The Slider is their team mascot. Based out of their home in Ohio, the Indians have played in the Progressive Field beginning in 1994. During the spring, the Indians train in Goodyear, Arizona, at the Goodyear Ballpark. The Indians have proven their success by winning two World Series championships.

Mike Hargrove, a popular manager, was brought in on January 18, 2011, in an effort to assist the Cleveland Indians from a run of bad luck. The season started very strong until some injuries caused a lapse in their success. Jason Kipnis and Lonnie Chisenhall, a few minor leaguers, were brought in in order to substitute for the wounded players.

April 5, 2012 marked the opening of the 2012 season for the Cleveland Indians. Attendance at the Progressive Field broke all previous records for an opening day game. There were 43,190 fans watching to see to see how the Indians would fare against the Toronto Blue Jays. This game turned out to be the longest opening game by innings in the history of Major League Baseball.

The Indians definitely have their share of fans, selling out 455 home games in a row at Jacobs Field.
