CLEVELAND (AP) Indians catcher Yan Gomes will miss six to eight weeks with a broken right wrist, likely ending his injury-plagued season.

Gomes sustained a non-displaced fracture when he was hit by a pitch Wednesday night while on a rehab assignment for Double-A Akron. He was examined by a hand specialist Friday and will not need surgery.

Gomes appeared to be a game away from rejoining the Indians when his latest injury occurred. He separated his right shoulder on July 17 when he fell trying to beat out a play at first base in Minnesota.

The Indians, who lead the AL Central by seven games, planned to activate Gomes to catch Corey Kluber in the opener of a three-game series against Detroit on Friday.

Gomes also had a difficult season at the plate, batting .165 with eight homers and 32 RBIs in 71 games.
