2022 Player Outlook
Since the start of 2020, Gomes has been excellent. In 2021, he hit 14 home runs with 52 RBI while slashing .252/.301/.421 as a member of the Nationals and Athletics. Over his last 133 games (spanning 2020-2021), Gomes has a .260 batting average to go with 63 runs scored and 65 RBI. He's also thrown out 27 percent of would-be base stealers in that span. Bringing in Yan Gomes was a good move for Chicago in reality, but it's a negative from a fantasy aspect, as Gomes is going to serve as Willson Contreras' backup. Unless something happens to Contreras, it will be tough for Gomes to get more than a couple of starts each week.
