Indians Tweet a Fond Farewell to Now Former Catcher Yan Gomes

The first big offseason move was made Friday by the Tribe, sending All-Star catcher Yan Gomes to the Washington Nationals for a pair of prospects, outfielder Daniel Johnson, and right-handed pitcher Jefry Rodriguez.

Gomes was a fan favorite among Indians faithful, and Twitter was on fire most of Friday evening with fans expressing unhappiness over the deal made by the Indians.

The Tribe themselves bid a fond farewell to Gomes on Friday night, tweeting out a ‘Thank You’ to Gomes for his contributions to the organization over the last few seasons with the franchise.

For now, the catcher position belongs to Roberto Perez and Eric Hasse, something that isn’t sitting well either with Indians fans.
