News: Gomes (concussion) showed much improvement Tuesday and was able to do some running and pregame hitting activities, MLB.com reports. "He's having a really good day," said manager Terry Francona. "Friday's his day. Unless he has a setback somewhere -- which it doesn't look like he [will] -- he'll probably be ready to go." Impact: Gomes' availability for Friday will certainly hinge on how he feels Wednesday after the increased activity level Tuesday but it sounds like he should be ready to return when eligible.(RotoWire, )

News: Gomes backed off on his activities Sunday after still experiencing concussion symptoms Saturday, MLB.com reports.

I think there's three or four steps, and each one you have to pass. When you pass one, you go on to the next one. How fast, it just depends on how you feel. Impact: Gomes isn't eligible to return until the weekend, so he's a likely sit in most formats despite his recent production at the plate.(RotoWire, )
