Yan Gomes, Kurt Suzuki to Split Time

Although Washington Nationals catcher Yan Gomes will be the team's primary option again this season, fellow catcher Kurt Suzuki will get a large chunk of the playing time. Suzuki is looking to catch starters Max Scherzer and Anibal Sanchez, with Gomes catching the rest of the staff. Suzuki has been the superior hitter for years now, and catching about 40% of the time to Gomes' 60% is close enough that Suzuki is the better option of the two for fantasy purposes. While Suzuki belongs on a roster in two-catcher leagues and could be a streamer in daily one-catcher leagues, Gomes doesn't offer nearly that upside.

Nationals Bring Yan Gomes Back

The Washington Nationals agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal to re-sign catcher Yan Gomes on Wednesday night, according to sources. Gomes will rejoin Kurt Suzuki for Washington's catching tandem in 2020 as they try to defend their World Series title. The 32-year-old was the least effective of the two options in D.C. last year, hitting only .223/.316/.389 with 12 home runs and 43 RBI in 314 at-bats. He's a better real-life player for depth than a fantasy one, so Gomes is only really attractive in two-catcher or single-universe leagues.

Ryan Zimmerman, Yan Gomes Become Free Agents

The Washington Nationals declined their 2020 options on first baseman Ryan Zimmerman ($18 million) and catcher Yan Gomes ($9 million), making them both free agents. The Nats expect to work something out to re-sign Zimmerman, who was the team's first-round pick in 2005, but the same can't be said for Gomes. Zimmerman has dealt with injuries the last several seasons and hit just .257 with six homers and 27 RBI in only 171 at-bats during the regular season. Still, he'll likely be the starting first baseman in D.C. again next year if he re-signs. He's just corner infield depth in NL-only leagues at this stage of his career, though. Gomes doesn't stand out defensively and hit a weak .223 with 12 home runs and 43 RBI in 2019. He was the second option behind the plate this year behind Kurt Suzuki.
