CLEVELAND -- Barring some unforeseen circumstance, the Indians will have their star catcher, Yan Gomes, back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.
Gomes, working his way back from an MCL sprain in his right knee, caught seven innings for Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday, batted four times as a designated on Thursday, and will catch a full nine innings on Friday. He'll get a day off on Saturday before rejoining the Major League club for Sunday's showdown between Trevor Bauer and Johnny Cueto.
