Gosewisch was informed Friday that he'll open the season at Triple-A San Antonio, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. The news is no surprise, as Gosewisch is behind even third catcher Erik Kratz, who may not be able to make the team. Even if Kratz heads elsewhere, Gosewisch isn't guaranteed to be the next man up, as he doesn't have a 40-man roster spot.
Gosewisch inked a minor-league contract with Milwaukee that includes an invite to spring training. Gosewisch has played in 137 major-league games over the course of his career, though only 11 of those have come since the start of the 2017 season. He spent the entirety of this past year at Triple-A Syracuse in the Nationals' system, slashing just .219/.310/.335 with three home runs and 25 RBI. The 35-year-old doesn't have a path to big-league playing time with Manny Pina, Erik Kratz and Jacob Nattingham ahead of him on the Brewers' depth chart.
Gosewisch agreed to a minor-league deal with the Nationals on Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Gosewisch was released by Seattle just over a week ago after failing to make the club's Opening Day roster out of spring training. The 34-year-old will likely report to Triple-A Syracuse and provide some extra organizational depth for Washington this season. During 11 appearances with the Mariners in 2017, he went 2-for-28 with 14 strikeouts.
Gosewisch was released by the Mariners on Thursday. Gosewisch failed to make the Opening Day roster with Seattle after joining the club in spring training as a non-roster invitee. The 34-year-old catcher will look to latch on with another organization, though he's likely headed for a reserve role on a Triple-A roster.
The Mariners reassigned Gosewisch to their minor-league camp Sunday, TJ Cotterill of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. With Gosewisch likely ticketed for Triple-A Tacoma to begin the season, Mike Marjama is slated to open the season as the Mariners' backup catcher behind primary option Mike Zunino. Gosewisch made 11 appearances for the big club in 2017, recording just two hits in 28 at-bats.
