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.

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 optioned OF Anthony Gose to Triple-A Buffalo.

Anthony Gose provided the Blue Jays' only run in Thursday's loss to the Orioles, lifting a solo home run to right field.

It was his only hit in three at-bats, and was also his first home run of the season. The fifth-inning blast, which came off of Miguel Gonzalez, was one of only four hits on the night for the Jays. The outfielder hasn't done much at the plate, slashing .239/.340/.301, but he has stolen 12 bases.

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

With Nolan Reimold heading to the disabled list, Gose will once again provide depth in the outfield for the Jays. In 44 games this season, the 23-year-old is hitting .229/.333/.284 with five RBI, five stolen bases and a 32/16 K/BB ratio over 109 at-bats.

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

He's clearing room for the return of Brett Cecil (groin). The Jays sending down Gose probably means that Colby Rasmus (wrist) will return to the lineup soon.

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

Gose has batted just .233 with a .637 OPS in 104 plate appearances this season at the major league level. The 23-year-old can steal bases but might not get enough playing time for that to matter in fantasy leagues.

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

Gose has hit just .233/.347/.291 over 86 at-bats in the majors this season. Colby Rasmus (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game.

Anthony Gose was one of several Blue Jays who struggled at the plate on Saturday, going 0-for-3 in a losing effort against the Cardinals.

The bottom seven hitters in the Jays lineup all went without a hit on the afternoon, as Shelby Miller was in complete command from the outset. Gose has struggled to get things going at the big league level, hitting .242/.342/.318 with no homers and four RBI in his first 66 at-bats.

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

Gose is taking the roster spot left vacant by Colby Rasmus, who was placed on the disabled list in a corresponding move with tightness in his right hamstring. Gose has two hits in six at-bats this year for Toronto. He is doubtful to hold fantasy relevance.

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

Gose has two hits in six at-bats during a couple stints with the big club this season. He'll return to a .235/.350/.309 batting line at Triple-A.

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

Gose was up in the majors for one day earlier this month to serve as the Blue Jays' 26th man for a doubleheader with the Twins. The former top prospect still has good speed but probably won't play enough to carry fantasy relevance. He turns 24 years old later this summer.
