2019 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: YAN GOMES TO ENTER TIMESHARE WITH KURT SUZUZKI ON NATS

                                                                

For the second time in two weeks, the Washinton Nationals addressed their catching hole from the previous season on Friday when they came to an agreement with the Cleveland Indians to acquire veteran backstop Yan Gomes.  Still, under team control for three more seasons, Gomes will enter into a timeshare with Kurt Suzuki which will ultimately cap both of their prospective 2019 fantasy baseball value.  This is somewhat of a shame since Gomes had a nice comeback campaign in 2018 when he batted .266 with 16 home runs and 48 RBI in 403 at-bats for the Indians but again his numbers will be hurt a bit by splitting time with Suzuki.  On a larger front, the additions of Gomes and Suzuki signal that the Nats have given up on their ongoing pursuit of Miami Marlins All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto.  In terms of Gomes, he is really just a second option in two-catcher formats and has some more value in NL-only leagues given the lack of options there.
