By on 8/22/2014 07:30:00 AM

According to Jordan Bastian of, Indians catcher Yan Gomes exited Thursday’s game against the Twins due to concussion-like symptoms.

Gomes was hit in the face mask in the bottom of the fifth inning by a ball that hit off of Kurt Suzuki on a hit-by-pitch. Gomes remained in the game, but was replaced the next inning behind home plate. Manager Terry Francona said they aren’t calling it a concussion for now, but could change. He would likely go to the 7-day concussion disabled list if he had a concussion.

Gomes, 27, has a line of .284/.324/.477 with 17 home runs, 53 RBI, 22 walks, 95 strikeouts, and an .800 OPS in 109 games. He has a 3.9 Baseball-Reference WAR and went hitless in two at-bats Thursday before being replaced.

In 2013, Gomes had a slash of .294/.345/.481 with 11 home runs, 38 RBI, 18 walks, 67 strikeouts, and an .826 OPS in 88 games. He had a staggering 4.0 WAR in the limited amount of time he played.
