Description: The Blue Jays shipped infielder Yan Gomes to Cleveland Saturday as part of a three-player deal.
Insight: Former Boston shortstop Mike Aviles was also involved in the trade. Gomes only hit .204 in the majors last season but he showed tons of potential during his 79 games in Triple-A (.328, 13 HR, 59 RBI). His eligibility at multiple positions (he played games at first base, third base, catcher and left field last season) makes him an intriguing fantasy possibility.
