Anthony Gose is scheduled to make his spring debut with the Rangers on Friday against the Padres.
Gose was recently returned to the Rangers after being a Rule 5 draft pick of the Astros. He walked the only three hitters he faced while a member of the Houston organization. It's likely he'll begin the year in Triple-A Round Rock no matter how he pitches over the final week of the Cactus League. Mar 23 - 8:35 AM

Astros returned Rule 5 pick LHP/OF Anthony Gose to the Rangers.

Gose walked the only three batters he faced with the Astros and is now back with the Rangers after signing a minor league deal with them back in November. He'll be in big league camp as a non-roster invitee. He's expected to be used primarily as a pitcher.
Mar 9 - 2:21 PM

Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports that the Astros have placed LHP/OF Anthony Gose on outright waivers.

The Rule 5 pick must be offered back to the Rangers if he clears waivers. Houston gave Gose a shot to continue his pitching experiment this spring but he really struggled in his lone Grapefruit League appearance.
Mar 5 - 6:41 PM

Astros selected OF/LHP Anthony Gose from the Rangers with the 15th pick in the Rule 5 draft.

Gose struggled with his attempted conversion from outfielder to left-handed reliever in 2017, but Astros executive Kevin Goldstein told reporters on Wednesday that the club will double down on that experiment. It'll be an uphill battle for the 27-year-old to stick on Houston's active roster throughout the entire season.

Rangers signed OF/LHP Anthony Gose to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Gose tried his hand at pitching this past season in the minors but yielded nine earned runs in 10 2/3 innings of relief at High-A Lakeland, the Florida State League affiliate of the Tigers. He'll be looked at mainly as an outfielder with the Rangers and potentially a pitcher if his arm is healthy. The 27-year-old former second-round pick is a .240/.309/.348 career hitter at the major league level.

Anthony Gose surrendered one run on two hits while striking out one in an inning of work with High-A Lakeland on Wednesday as he continues his transition from outfielder to pitcher.

Gose has a live arm, having been clocked at 99 mph. He is working at High-A after spending several weeks prepping in extended spring training. The 26-year-old owned a disappointing .240/.309/.348 slash line in 372 games at the major league level prior to making the shift to the mound. The Tigers have reportedly been encouraged by the southpaw's transition in the early going.

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.

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.

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.
