The Cleveland Indians have reportedly traded catcher Yan Gomes to the Washington Nationals, according to multiple sources.

According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the Indians acquired minor league right fielder Daniel Johnson in exchange for Gomes.

The Indians have just two catchers left on their roster, Roberto Perez and Eric Haase.
