CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cleveland Indians and catcher Yan Gomes have agreed to terms on a multiyear contract.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Saturday because the deal is pending a physical and other details.
FOXSports.com first reported the agreement and said Gomes is getting a $23 million, six-year deal.
The 26-year-old Gomes had a breakout season in 2013, batting .294 with 11 homers and 38 RBIs in 88 games. He also threw out 38 percent (18 of 47) of attempted base stealers. The Indians went 49-30 when he started.
Gomes' emergence prompted the Indians to move catcher Carlos Santana to third base this spring. The Indians acquired Gomes before last season in a trade with Toronto.
