Report: Nats in talks to get C Gomes from Indians


Catcher Yan Gomes, one of the most talked-about players in the trade rumor mill, has yet another team connected to him.

MLB.com reported late Friday afternoon that the Washington Nationals "are in discussions" to acquire Gomes from Cleveland. The outlet had reported the deal was done earlier in the day, even naming the players the Indians would receive in return.

But later in the day, MLB.com said it was unable to confirm what Washington would include in the trade and that "a deal was not done as of Friday."

Gomes, 31, is under club control for three more seasons and on the books for $7 million in 2019 with team options in 2020 and '21. He hit .266 with 16 home runs and 48 RBIs last season and made the All-Star Game for the first time in his career. His .762 OPS ranked fifth among catchers with at least 400 plate appearances. He is also considered a strong defensive catcher adept at handling a pitching staff.

He would be the second catcher acquired this offseason by Washington, which signed Kurt Suzuki to a two-year, $10 million contract earlier in November.

Gomes has been at the center of numerous trade rumors this offseason, with multiple reports as recently as Friday saying both the Dodgers and Mets were closing in on acquiring him.
