Yan Gomes inks two-year deal with Washington

Yan Gomes signed a two-year, $10 million contract with the Nationals on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

The Nationals declined his $9 million dollar option earlier in the off-season. The team brought him back into the fold and he will once again split catching duties with Kurt Suzuki. He slashed .223/.316/.389 with 12 home runs, 43 RBI and 36 runs scored across 358 plate appearances for the Nationals in 2019. Due to Gomes heavy lefty/righty splits, he should only be drafted in two-catcher formats.

Yan Gomes has option declined by Nationals

The Nationals have declined Yan Gomes' $9 million option for 2020.

Fantasy Impact

Gomes batted just .223 on the season splitting time with Kurt Suzuki, and was only relevant in NL-only leagues anyway. He should catch on somewhere, but likely not as a clear-cut starter and thus, not fantasy-relevant. Suzuki, who has another year left on his contract, will likely see the bulk of playing time behind the dish for the Nationals in 2020.

Yan Gomes leaves yard in win Friday

Yan Gomes went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-3 victory against the Braves.

Fantasy Impact

This was Gomes's first home run since April 26. Since then, he's only had five extra-base hits in 32 games entering Friday. Gomes is batting .224 with a paltry .628 OPS with three home runs and 20 RBI this season.

Yan Gomes leaves Monday's game with forearm contusion after HBP

Yan Gomes was removed from Monday's game against the Brewers with a left forearm contusion after he was hit by a pitch by Jhoulys Chacin.

Fantasy Impact

Gomes remained in the game initially before being pinch hit for in the third inning by Kurt Suzuki. It does not seem likely that Gomes will miss much time with a diagnosis of a contusion, but Suzuki would vault into a borderline top-12 catcher if he got the job to himself.

Yan Gomes hits second home run Friday

Nationals catcher Yan Gomes went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's loss to the San Diego Padres. The homer was his second of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Gomes had been slumping hard and is in a fairly even timeshare with Kurt Suzuki, limiting his fantasy value to deeper NL-only leagues.
