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.
