In­di­ans’ Gomes out six weeks

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL -

Yan Gomes could be out of the Cleve­land In­di­ans’ lineup for two months, a ma­jor blow to a team ex­pected to con­tend this sea­son.

Gomes, one of the In­di­ans’ best play­ers, sus­tained a “mod­er­ate” sprain of the me­dial col­lat­eral lig­a­ment in his right knee on a play at the plate Satur­day. The team ex­pects him to be out at least six weeks. An MRI exam at the Cleve­land Clinic on Sun­day re­vealed the sprain.

Gomes’ leg was jolted vi­o­lently by Detroit out­fielder Ra­jai Davis , who slid hard on a force play and clipped the catcher’s right leg. Gomes was ex­tended at the time like a first base­man mak­ing a catch.


Colorado Rock­ies re­liever John Ax­ford was placed on the fam­ily med­i­cal emer­gency list to tend to his young son, who was bit­ten by a rat­tlesnake last month in Ari­zona. ... At­lanta Braves left-han­der Mike Mi­nor had dis­com­fort in his pitch­ing shoul­der again, push­ing back his at­tempts to re­join the ro­ta­tion. ... Miami Mar­lins cen­ter fielder Mar­cell Ozuna was benched Sun­day as pun­ish­ment for be­ing late to bat­ting prac­tice.
