CLEVELAND -- Even while Yan Gomes was on the disabled list, Indians manager Terry Francona raved about the catcher's leadership and presence when around the team. On Sunday, Gomes was finally able to bring those attributes back to the field for the Tribe.
"I was happy for him," Francona said prior to Monday's game against the Rangers. "You could tell how excited he was. He worked really hard to be back. He pushed the entire time, and you could tell he was really enjoying it."
