Anthony Gose went hitless in a third straight game Wednesday, dropping his average under .300 for just the second time this season.
Gose was never a very good bet to keep hitting for average as often as he strikes out (47/10 K/BB in 165 AB), and the Tigers will probably need to take him out of the leadoff spot at some point. He shouldn't have much value in mixed leagues going forward. Jun 3 - 9:56 PM

Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and scored the only run as the Tigers eked out a victory against the Athletics on Tuesday.

Gose led off the game with a single, then stole second and advanced to third base on catcher Josh Phegley's throwing error. He promptly scored on a Rajai Davis sacrifice fly. Gose, on a six-game hitting streak, has quietly been a force at the top of the Tigers' lineup, batting .338/.374/.475 with eight stolen bases, 20 runs scored, and 11 RBI.

Anthony Gose went 4-for-5 with a triple and three singles in Thursday's 13-1 drubbing of the Twins.

Gose was going crazy in this one, though tossing a dart at almost any offensive player for the Tigers would reveal good numbers, as the team accumulated a whopping 20 hits in the game. Needless to say, Twins starter Mike Pelfrey is no longer undefeated. What a four-hit game does for you on May 14: Jumps a .322/.366/.460 line to .348/.394/.500. Gose isn't likely to keep up those gaudy numbers, but he should hit for decent average and he has the speed to provide a nice number of steals (he's swiped six bags thus far).
May 14 - 4:39 PM

Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

The steal was Gose's fifth of the year and he's now got 10 runs scored. His .313 average and .343 on-base percentage are largely buoyed by his early success, but Gose has shown that it wasn't entirely a mirage with some good games recently. And even if it was, his speed should provide a good number of steals if nothing else.
May 5 - 11:32 PM

Anthony Gose went 3-for-4 with a double in Saturday's win over the Royals.

Despite getting on base three times, the speedy outfielder did not attempt a steal. Gose does have speed upside, but his .322/.355/.475 batting line is likely to dip a bit as the season wears on. We like him more than Rajai Davis, but the two will most likely continue to share at-bats, at least for the foreseeable future. By the end of the year, though, it's certainly possible that Gose could be entrenched at center.
May 2 - 11:34 PM

Anthony Gose had an RBI single and a stolen base in a loss to the Twins on Tuesday.

Batting leadoff, Gose stroked an RBI single in the third inning to get the Tigers on the board. He later stole second base for his fourth steal of the year. Gose has cooled after a hot start -- his line is down to .314/.352/.471 -- and he'll likely continue on in a platoon with Rajai Davis unless one demands more playing time with his performance on the field.
Apr 28 - 11:27 PM

Anthony Gose is not in the Tigers starting lineup on Saturday.

Despite the Tigers facing a right-handed pitcher, it will be Rajai Davis starting in center field and hitting atop the lineup instead of Gose. The hot-hitting 24-year-old is slashing .333/.348/.511 with a homer and five RBI in 45 at-bats, though he sports a troublesome 19/1 K/BB ratio.
Apr 25 - 9:28 AM

Anthony Gose is out of the Tigers' starting lineup for a third straight game Monday.

Gose is batting .393 with a 1.036 OPS in 28 at-bats this season, but the Tigers prefer to use Rajai Davis in center field against left-handers and they're facing their third straight southpaw (CC Sabathia) on Monday night. This looks like a strict platoon for now, which obviously hurts both players from a fantasy perspective.
Apr 20 - 3:48 PM

Anthony Gose is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Pirates.

We don't give much credence to the small sample, but Rajai Davis is 4-for-9 with two doubles and a triple against A.J. Burnett in his career, so Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has him leading off and playing center field. Gose might also sit Wednesday with left-hander Francisco Liriano on the hill.
Apr 14 - 2:52 PM

Anthony Gose had another strong day at the dish in Thursday's victory over the Twins, going 3-for-5 with a double and three runs scored.

Gose also swiped his first base of the season. He's off to a blistering start to his Tigers career, hitting .545 (6-for-11) with four runs scored and three RBI. While he won't continue at this pace, he should remain atop the Tigers lineup against right-handed pitching and his speed should lead to ample fantasy value.
Apr 9 - 7:43 PM

Anthony Gose is leading off again on Thursday.

Gose went 3-for-6 with a double and a triple out of that spot Wednesday against the Twins. If he hits regularly atop the Detroit batting order this season, the speedy 24-year-old center fielder is going to carry considerable fantasy value. He stole 271 bases in the minors.
Apr 9 - 9:38 AM

Anthony Gose is playing center field and batting leadoff in Wednesday's game versus the Twins.

Gose sat in favor of Rajai Davis on Opening Day even though there was a righty on the mound, but he's out there for the second game. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Wednesday that Gose will be in center most of the time when the opposition starts a right-hander. How much Gose hits is certainly questionable, but his speed gives him some appeal in deeper formats.
Apr 8 - 9:43 AM

Anthony Gose went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts versus the Astros on Wednesday.

It's been a tale of two springs for Gose. He started out 13-for-25 with four walks and five strikeouts in his first nine games before going 6-for-38 with one walk and 13 strikeouts over his last 12 games. The Tigers were all set to open the season with him in the leadoff spot after the hot start, but they might want to rethink things. Really, though, with Jose Iglesias having a terrible spring and Alex Avila faring little better, the alternatives that Brad Ausmus was considering for the top of the lineup at the beginning of the spring hardly look like alternatives at all. Of course, we still maintain that the Tigers' best choice is just to forgo putting one of their lesser bats up there and simply crowd their five best hitters into the top five spots in the lineup.
Apr 1 - 5:12 PM

Chris Iott of MLive.com "gets the sense" that Anthony Gose will hit first or second against right-handers to begin the season.

There was some talk that Alex Avila would hit out of the No. 2 spot against right-handers, so this means that he would be moved down in the order. Gose owns a lowly .234/.301/.332 batting line across 616 plate appearances in the majors, so we're not convinced the experiment will last long, but he's going to be fantasy relevant because of his speed.
Mar 25 - 1:59 PM

Anthony Gose went hitless on Thursday and is 0-for-10 with five strikeouts in his last three games.

This was bound to happen. Gose might be better than he showed in Toronto, but it's hard to see him being a legitimate leadoff hitter for the the Tigers. His spring average, which stood at .579 a week ago, is down to .371, and he's 0-for-1 stealing bases the last six games after going 4-for-4 in his first five games.
