CLEVELAND –  Yan Gomes got quite the surprise Saturday evening as he made his way to bat in the 9th inning as the Tribe took on the New York Yankees.

He was introduced as a “2018 all-star representing the American League.”

Gomes is replacing the injured Wilson Ramos, catcher for  the Tampa Bay Rays.

This means the Indians will have 6 players representing the organization at the mid-summer classic in Washington DC on Tuesday.

The other Tribe all-stars are:

JOSE RAMIREZ, 3rd Baseman – Voted American League Starter
COREY KLUBER, Starting Pitcher (who will  not play due  to an injury)
TREVOR BAUER, Starting Pitcher

This is the most players the Indians have had at the All-Star Game since 1999.

MLB’s All-Star Game will take place July 17 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. on FOX 8.
