Mariners recalled C Tuffy Gosewisch from Triple-A Tacoma.

He'll take the place of the struggling Mike Zunino and should share time behind the plate with Carlos Ruiz. The 33-year-old backstop is a career .199/.237/.286 hitter at the major league level and isn't an appealing fantasy option.
May 5 - 8:40 PM

Mariners optioned C Tuffy Gosewisch to Triple-A Tacoma.

Gosewisch was a waiver claim in January. He didn't have a chance at a roster spot with Mike Zunino and Carlos Ruiz slated to handle the catching duties.
Mar 31 - 6:06 PM

Mariners claimed C Tuffy Gosewisch off waivers from the Braves.

Atlanta claimed Gosewisch from the Diamondbacks in mid-November and avoided arbitration with him a few weeks later on a one-year, $635,000 deal. That contract now gets transferred to Seattle, where the 33-year-old catcher will be on the outside looking in for a major league roster spot behind Mike Zunino and Carlos Ruiz. Gosewisch is a .199/.237/.286 career hitter at baseball's highest level.
Jan 26 - 2:58 PM

Braves and C Tuffy Gosewisch avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract.

Monetary terms of Gosewisch's contract are not yet known. The Braves claimed the 33-year-old backstop off waivers from the Diamondbacks in mid-November. In 392 big league at-bats, Gosewisch owns a .199/.237/.286 triple-slash with five homers and 30 RBI. He figures to have a shot at securing a backup role in spring training, but there is no fantasy intrigue here.

Braves claimed C Tuffy Gosewisch off waivers from the Diamondbacks.

Gosewisch, 33, is a career .199/.237/.286 hitter over parts of four seasons in the majors, but the Braves think he'll help out defensively. He'll compete for the backup job behind Tyler Flowers.

Tuffy Gosewisch went 2-for-4 and clobbered his third home run of the season in a losing effort against the Red Sox on Friday.

The light-hitting backup catcher tagged David Price with the solo shot in the fifth inning, cutting the D'Backs deficit to 8-3 at the time. This coming after he homered and tripled against the Mets on Thursday. Even with his two-hit attack, he's still hitting just .208/.235/.438 with three homers and seven RBI on the season.

Tuffy Gosewisch homered and tripled Thursday against the Mets.

Gosewisch had three homers and no triples in 341 career at-bats entering this one. He's been playing quite a bit this last week, since Welington Castillo is struggling and Chris Herrmann remains on the disabled list. Herrmann, though, could be back in 7-10 days.

Diamondbacks recalled C Tuffy Gosewisch from Triple-A Reno.

The move figures to free up Chris Herrmann to be used at other positions. Gosewisch has batted .342/.399/.553 with nine homers and Reno this season.

Tuffy Gosewisch (knee) said he's "100 percent ready to go" this spring.

Gosewisch missed most of the 2015 season after tearing the ACL in his left knee last May. "I've been doing everything -- catching, hitting, throwing, running bases, and haven't had any setbacks," he said Thursday. "There are no limitations. It's all been good." He's expected to back up Welington Castillo in Arizona this season.

Diamondbacks activated C Tuffy Gosewisch from the 60-day disabled list.

It's a procedural move that returns him to the 40-man roster. Gosewisch missed most of 2015 and could get a late start to 2016 after tearing his ACL.
Mon, Nov 2, 2015 11:15:00 PM

Diamondbacks transferred C Tuffy Gosewisch to the 60-day disabled list.

Gosewisch suffered a torn ACL in late May and is out for the season. Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Oscar Hernandez will handle the catching duties with Gosewisch sidelined.
Sat, Jul 4, 2015 07:40:00 PM

Tuffy Gosewisch has been diagnosed with a full tear of his left ACL.

Gosewisch will undergo season-ending surgery soon. It's a real bummer for a 31-year-old who was getting his first shot at a starting job in the big leagues. Jarrod Saltalamacchia is the Diamondbacks' new starting catcher.
Tue, Jun 2, 2015 12:22:00 AM

Tuffy Gosewisch revealed Friday that he likely has an ACL tear in his left knee.

It sounds like he'll receive at least one more opinion before making a decision on surgery, but it appears his season is likely over. Jarrod Saltalamacchia has taken Gosewisch's spot on the roster and should serve as the Diamondbacks' starting catcher indefinitely.
