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. May 15 - 6:07 PM

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.
Apr 28 - 8:20 PM

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.
Apr 1 - 4:31 PM

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.
Mar 24 - 4:46 PM

Tigers agreed to terms with OFs Anthony Gose, Tyler Collins, Steven Moya, RHPs Buck Farmer, Angel Nesbit and Bruce Rondon, LHPs Daniel Norris and Matt Boyd and C Bryan Holaday on one-year contracts.

Financial terms of the deals have yet to be disclosed. With this group of signings, the Tigers now have all 40 players on the 40-man roster under contract for the 2016 season.
Mar 5 - 9:08 AM

Anthony Gose went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk Thursday against the Braves.

Gose is now likely to be the Tigers' Opening Day center fielder with Cameron Maybin (wrist) on the shelf for 4-6 weeks. If he impresses, he could continue to start against right-handers after Maybin returns.
Mar 3 - 4:52 PM

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus on Thursday would not commit to whether Cameron Maybin or Anthony Gose will start in center field.

One of the two outfielders -- likely Gose -- probably would have started in left field prior to the club signing Justin Upton. "I won’t rush to judgment," Ausmus said. "Cam and Gose both play center field; Gose has played the corner outfield spots more than Maybin. J.D. Martinez will play right field the majority of the time and Upton will play left field the majority of the time. We’ll just kind of see how center field plays out." The two outfielders could wind up serving in a platoon of sorts in center, although Maybin certainly won't be limited to starting just against lefties and could be the favorite to win the job outright.

Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with two runs scored against the Royals on Tuesday.

Gose, back in the leadoff spot, had leadoff singles and scored in both the first and seventh innings. The 25-year-old is batting .253/.311/.363 with four homers, 54 runs scored and 19 stolen bases in his first year with the Tigers.

Anthony Gose belted his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday.

His two-run shot off R.A. Dickey in the seventh inning pulled the Tigers to within two runs at 5-3, but that would be as close as they'd get. He finished the night 1-for-3 and is now hitting .253/.308/.366 with four homers and 23 RBI on the season.

Anthony Gose hit an RBI triple as the Tigers won a low-scoring affair with the Royals on Wednesday.

Gose, who finished 1-for-4, knocked in the first of the Tigers' two runs when he tripled to center field. The outfielder has hit the skids offensively, batting .114 (5-for-44) in his last 18 games. Overall, he's hitting .262/.305/.368 with two home runs, 18 RBI, 39 runs scored, and 16 stolen bases.

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

Rajai Davis is starting in his place in center field and will lead off against Red Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright. With left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez on the hill for the Red Sox on Sunday, don't expect Gose to return to the lineup until Monday.

Anthony Gose went 2-for-3 with two runs scored against the Twins on Thursday.

Gose lost quite a bit of his remaining fantasy value when the Tigers decided to move Ian Kinsler and Yoenis Cespedes up in the order. Gose now bats eighth when he plays, which he's only doing about 60 percent of the time. He's still having a perfectly respectable season with his .281 average and .323 OBP, even if most of that is residue of a hot start. But he has no value in mixed leagues as is.

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.

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.
