  • Cubs Cut Yan Gomes, Sign Tomas Nido

    Headshot for Yan Gomes

    The Chicago Cubs designated veteran catcher Yan Gomes for assignment on Wednesday and signed free-agent catcher Tomas Nido to an undisclosed deal in a corresponding move. The 36-year-old Gomes just wasn't getting it done as the primary backup to starting catcher Miguel Amaya, slashing a pitiful .154/.179/.242 this year with two home runs, seven RBI, seven runs scored, two walks and 36 strikeouts in 96 plate appearances over 34 games in his third year with the Cubbies. Gomes will turn 37 in July, and it's unclear if any other organization will be interested in adding him as catching depth. Nido was released by the New York Mets recently after going 19-for-83 (.229) with eight RBI in 32 games in the Big Apple in 2024. He'll take over as Amaya's backup in Chicago.

  • Tomas Nido Seeing The Majority Of Starts Behind The Dish

    Headshot for Tomas Nido

    New York Mets catcher Tomas Nido has been receiving the slight edge in starts behind the dish due to Francisco Alvarez's thumb injury. Omar Narvaez was expected to see the majority of opportunities, but that has yet to look to be the case. Nido has started every game from May 3 to May 10, and Nido may be running away with the starting role. One significant reason why is that Nido is a much better defender and is 3-15 when throwing out opposing runners, while Narvaez is 0-30. In the batter's box, Nido has a .211/.231/.316 with one long ball compared to Narvaez, who has a .186/.222/.233. Manager Carlos Mendoza clearly values Nido's defense skill, and NL-only fantasy managers should monitor this situation as Nido could be worth adding if he becomes the primary backstop.
