CLEVELAND, Ohio- All-Star catcher Yan Gomes said he’ll be ready to go for Friday’s ALDS game one in Houston.
Earlier today, Gomes was asked would he start game one before taking the field for toady’s inter-squad scrimmage.
“Absolutely. It feels like a bad cut on my hand and it’s the outside of my thumb so the ball isn’t going to rub against it.” Gomes said.
The catcher needed stitches to close up a cut on his right thumb which he injured Saturday night in Kansas City. He was attempting to throw out a runner at second base when he hit his hand on Alex Gordon’s bat. He left the game for X-Rays which was negative.
Also, mentioned about doing baseball activities before Tuesday’s workout. Right now, said he’s going to swing the bat.
“I’m hitting today and doing normal things.”
The Indians open up the Division Series against the Astros in Houston at 2:05 p.m. ET
