Yan Gomes Just Homered Off of Yu Darvish

Chicago Cubs

Who says backup catchers can’t hit?

Tonight, Yan Gomes is starting behind the plate, where the majority of his value to the Cubs is generated. But in his first at-bat against Yu Darvish in the bottom of the second, he added a little value with the stick. Check out his 3rd home run of the season.

It was a bit of a laser, coming off the bat at a scorching 107 MPH and just a 22 degree launch angle.
