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.

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.

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 "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.
Mar 19 - 4:42 PM

Anthony Gose tripled, doubled and drove in two runs Thursday versus the Astros.

It seemed like Gose was going to have a starting job handed to him regardless, but he is just tearing it up this spring, with a .563 average and four steals in 16 at-bats. He was always too strikeout prone to be of much use in Toronto, but he does have some fantasy upside with his ability to steal bases (34 in 552 major league at-bats, 202 games).
Mar 12 - 6:24 PM

Anthony Gose went 3-for-4 with a steal on Saturday and is off to a 7-for-11 start this spring.

With a career .301 OBP in 552 at-bats for the Blue Jays, Gose really should open the season at the bottom of Detroit's lineup. However, if he stays hot all spring, he could well secure one of the top two spots in the order, at least against right-handers. It'd certainly make him a more intriguing fantasy property.
Mar 7 - 5:35 PM

Anthony Gose went 2-for-3 and scored from the leadoff spot Wednesday versus the Orioles.

Brad Ausmus knows that baseball's dirtiest word is "platoon," so he hasn't committed to starting Gose in center field against right-handers and Rajai Davis against left-handers, even though that would seem to make the most sense. It's also not yet certain where Gose will hit when he does play. Given his track record, he should hit eighth or ninth until he shows he's worth moving up. However, he might make some appearances batting first or second early on.
Mar 4 - 4:32 PM

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus indicated Friday that the club will not have a strict platoon in center field.

General manager Dave Dombrowski said back in December that he expected Anthony Gose to be the team's starter in center, so he figures to see the bulk of the starts versus righties. However, Rajai Davis will be in line to start against lefties and also versus some right-handers. Both players have some stolen base potential, but their fantasy value will be held down a bit unless one of them can win the job outright.
Feb 20 - 10:35 AM

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said Monday that he's expecting Anthony Gose to be the team's starting center fielder next season.

"That’s why we got him," Dombrowski said. It's not a surprising statement given what else the Tigers have on their roster, but it sounds like the GM has no intentions of adding an upgrade at the position. Gose is only a career .234/.301.332 hitter across parts of three seasons, but his terrific speed would make him relevant in fantasy leagues in a starting role. We suspect the Tigers will bench him against most left-handers.

Tigers acquired OF Anthony Gose from the Blue Jays for 2B Devon Travis.

The deal is an interesting one from the Blue Jays' perspective, as they could possibly lose outfielders Melky Cabrera and Colby Rasmus to free agency. Gose, 24, batted .226/.311/.293 in 239 at-bats with the Jays this past season, stealing 15 bases in the process. With the Tigers' outfield situation also in some flux, Gose could be in line for a platoon role next season.

Blue Jays recalled OF Anthony Gose from Triple-A Buffalo.

Gose has hit .234 with one homer and 14 steals over 69 games with the Blue Jays this season. He'll provide speed and defense off the bench.
Tue, Sep 2, 2014 11:21:00 AM

Blue Jays optioned OF Anthony Gose to Triple-A Buffalo.

Gose has gone back-and-forth between the majors and minors this season, hitting just .234/.333/.291 at the big league level. He's clearing space for the return of Edwin Encarnacion (quad) from the disabled list.
