Indians news and notes for Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

Yan needs to return so that the most recent photo results for "Gomes" are him and not an Olympian who shares his surname.

First we have some great news regarding next week's Roberto Perez catching tandem partner:

If all goes well with Gomes, Chris Gimenez will barely play towards the end of the season.

– The Indians attempted to play baseball last night, but the White Sox played much better. Chicago 8, Cleveland 1. Trevor Bauer's line looked bad, but he was done in by a bunch of Royalsesque bloops. Even though Tom Hamilton is ready to send him to the gorilla pit, I'm not one bit worried about Bauer going forward.

– The Tigers brought the same lifeless play into their game with the Twins last night and were likewise demolished.

• Because everybody wants a .444 winning percentage, "Brewers' base-stealing bargains could inspire next roster-building trend in MLB." The Brewers are on pace to steal 178 bases, the highest total of this decade.

• A 5th grader really wanted the Indians to trade for Coco Crisp in 2007. But I don't think he could have relieved Fausto Carmona in the ALCS well enough to Dana DeMuth's liking.

• The Twins could look to Kansas City for their next general manager. Works for me. If he's good, KC loses him; if he isn't, Twins stay awful.

• Taijuan Walker carried a perfect game into the 6th last night against the Angels. It didn't last, but it's good to know that he's capable of dominating another team that isn't the Indians.

• Because I know you came here today for a Joey Wendle update, he pinch ran for the A's yesterday and scored a run. He is batting .281/.294/.281 in 32 ABs with the Athletics this season.

• The Cleveland Browns are 0–1.
