Anthony Gose was clocked at 99 mph during his first appearance with High-A Lakeland on Monday.

Gose, who is making the switch from the outfield to the mound, was assigned to Lakeland after spending the first two months of the season in extended spring training. He allowed one run on one hit and one walk with one strikeout in his first appearance on Monday. Tigers vice president of player development Dave Littlefield said they are "very optimistic" about his progress thus far. Gose, a left-handed thrower, is still just 26 years old and could have an interesting second act ahead of him.

Anthony Gose, now a pitcher, has been assigned to High-A Lakeland.

Gose, a .240/.309/.348 career hitter in the major leagues, has been working on the switch for a few weeks in extended spring training and is now ready to test himself in a real game. The 26-year-old is said to throw hard from the left side and Tigers manager Brad Ausmus recently gave high praise to his curveball. It will be an interesting story to follow.

Anthony Gose is scheduled to begin facing live hitters Wednesday at extended spring training.

Gose, a .240/.309/.348 career hitter in the major leagues, is trying to see if a career as a relief pitcher might be a possibility. It's worth a shot. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told reporters that the 26-year-old left-hander has a fastball and a "very good" curveball.

Anthony Gose will begin throwing bullpen sessions as a conversion to pitcher is considered.

Gose will play the outfield for Triple-A Toledo, but he could also eventually get into games as a pitcher if he looks good in side sessions. The 26-year-old threw in the mid-90s in high school.

Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI against the Marlins on Tuesday.

The Tigers soured on Gose last year, for both performance and attitude reasons, but even though he's no longer on the 40-man, he remains a viable center field option for the team. He's probably their best option defensively over Mikie Mahtook, JaCoby Jones and Tyler Collins, and while his offensive upside is very limited, it's not like any of those alternatives are juggernauts. Most likely, Gose will open up in Triple-A, but he might be called on if the other options fail.
Mar 14 - 4:29 PM

Tigers sent OF Anthony Gose outright to Triple-A Toledo.

Gose was designated for assignment last week. In 91 at-bats for the Tigers in 2016, the 26-year-old outfielder slashed .209/.287/.341 with a pair of home runs and seven RBI. That is a small sample size, but even when given more playing time, Gose has failed to produce at the major league level. In 2015, he hit just .254/.321/.367 in 535 plate appearances.

Tigers designated OF Anthony Gose for assignment.

Gose becomes the roster casualty following the Tigers' acquisition of outfielder Mikie Mahtook from the Rays. He saw 91 at-bats with the big league club this past season and hit .209/.287/.341 with two homers and seven RBI in that space. Still just 26 years old, Gose will have to try to latch on with another club before spring training boots up in a little over a month.
Jan 18 - 5:48 PM

Anthony Gose has finished his three-game suspension for an argument with Triple-A Toledo manager Lloyd McClendon.

Things got heated between Gose and McClendon after Gose appeared to pull up on a catchable ball in the outfield Saturday during the first game of a doubleheader at Toledo. He was removed from that game and cleared out his locker before the second game. Gose will report to Double-A Erie on Wednesday. He has officially been demoted.

Anthony Gose did not show up at the ballpark Sunday at Triple-A Toledo after getting into a heated argument with manager Lloyd McClendon on Saturday.

Gose and McClendon got into it in the dugout after Gose appeared to pull up on what looked like a catchable ball in the first game of a doubleheader. He was pulled from the game and then cleared out his locked between contests. Tigers vice president of player development David Littlefield said that the team would talk over the break about what to do with Gose, who was optioned to the minors back in May.

Tigers optioned OF Anthony Gose to Triple-A Toledo.

With Cameron Maybin set to return from the disabled list on Monday, Gose became the odd-man out in the Tigers' outfield. After beginning the season as the club's starting center fielder, he hit just .209/.287/.341 with a 38/9 K/BB ratio over 101 plate appearances. He'll try to work things out at Triple-A before a potential return to the Tigers later in the season.

Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, a double, and two runs scored in Thursday’s 7-3 win over the Athletics.

His fourth-inning blast off Chris Bassitt was his second home run of the season. This was his first multi-hit game since April 13. The speedy 25-year-old is batting just .193/.258/.316 through 18 games and has yet to steal a base. His playing time will likely be in some jeopardy once Cameron Maybin is finally healthy enough to make his season debut.

Anthony Gose is absent from the Tigers' lineup on Friday.

Gose isn't known to be dealing with an injury, but this is the second straight game he's been benched in favor of Tyler Collins. He has just two hits in his last 20 at-bats, so it appears he's just getting some time off to regroup. Jarrod Saltalamacchia is also sitting out, as Bobby Wilson is behind the dish.

Anthony Gose went 3-for-3 with a three-run homer to lead the Tigers to a 9-4 win over a Rays split-squad Friday.

Gose's homer came off Matt Moore and was the lone hit surrendered by the left-hander. He's gone 5-for-9 in his last three games to raise his spring average from .182 to .245. He should be something close to the everyday center fielder until Cameron Maybin comes off the DL, making him useful in AL-only leagues.

Anthony Gose went 0-for-4 as the Tigers' leadoff man Thursday, dropping his average to .179.

Gose's poor spring won't cost him the gig as the Tigers' primary center fielder in Cameron Maybin's absence, though he might lose some starts against lefties. A slow start during the regular season would cost him extra playing time when Maybin returns. Maybin seemed likely to be the Tigers' primary center fielder after being acquired from the Braves, but Gose was going to get a chance to compete with him before he got hurt.
