Indians' Anthony Gose: Coming back to majors as pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland will select Gose's contract from Triple-A Columbus ahead of Monday's doubleheader with the Royals, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

A once-promising outfield prospect while coming up through the Blue Jays' system, Gose slashed .240/.309/.348 across 1,252 plate appearances with Toronto and Detroit from the 2012 through 2016 seasons before converting to pitching. The transition initially proved rough, but Gose began generating better results in 2019 and was awarded an assignment to Triple-A coming out of spring training. The 31-year-old lefty has been especially effective since rejoining Columbus in mid-August following a stint at the Tokyo Olympics with Team USA; over his final 12 appearances with the affiliate, Gose gave up one run while striking out 22 over 14 innings. Blessed with a fastball that occasionally touches the triple digits, Gose will get a chance to make a case for a spot in Cleveland's 2022 bullpen during the final two weeks of the current season.

Indians' Anthony Gose: Healthy after car accident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose has tossed a scoreless inning in each of his three Cactus League appearances to date, striking out four while giving up two hits and no walks.

Gose suffered a scare early in spring training when he was involved in a car crash, but he was fortunate to emerge without any injuries. He resumed working out with Cleveland days after the accident and has impressed observers, with Jon Morosi of MLB Network touting the outfielder-turned-pitcher as a candidate to join the big-league bullpen at some point in 2021. An Opening Day roster spot still looks like a long shot for Gose -- who hasn't pitched above the Double-A level since making the conversion from outfield in 2017 -- but he may have put himself near the top of the list for a call-up when Cleveland requires another reliever.

Indians' Anthony Gose: Involved in car accident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose was involved in a car accident Friday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

Gose checked out fine following the accident, but he'll be limited for several days to make sure that he's ok to play. While he'll be a non-roster invitee at spring training, Gose will likely serve as organizational depth to begin the regular season.

Indians' Anthony Gose: Returns to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose re-signed with Cleveland as a non-roster invitee Tuesday.

The 30-year-old former outfielder began his conversion to pitching back in 2017 but has yet to advance above Double-A. In 65.2 total minor-league innings, he owns a 4.39 ERA and 1.61 WHIP, with his 19.9 percent walk rate coming in far too high for him to be an effective weapon. Cleveland evidently still believes there's something there, however, as he's set to spend his third straight year with the organization.

Indians' Anthony Gose: Moved to satellite camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose was moved to Cleveland's satellite camp Wednesday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

While the Indians reportedly love Gose's arm, the team also feels the outfielder-turned-reliever could benefit from some additional reps. Gose, who touched 100 mph in spring and struck out nine batters in 5.2 innings before the shutdown, could eventually be a dangerous option for Cleveland's bullpen down the line.

Indians' Anthony Gose: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose will be a part of the Indians' 60-man player pool this season.

The outfielder-turned-reliever was touching 100 mph this spring, according to Eric Longenhagen of FanGraphs. He also has a plus curveball and struck out nine in 5.2 innings before the shutdown. James Karinchak is the most likely reliever to vulture saves from Brad Hand, but Gose is a player to keep an eye on given his stuff and untapped potential since converting from position player to pitcher in 2017.

Indians' Anthony Gose: Inks deal with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose agreed to a minor-league contract with the Indians on Saturday.

Gose hasn't appeared in a major-league game since 2016 but will provide some additional pitching depth within Cleveland's organization for the upcoming year. Across 21 appearances at Double-A Frisco in the Rangers' system, he logged a disastrous 6.52 ERA and 2.09 WHIP in 19.1 innings of relief.

Rangers' Anthony Gose: Set to make spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose is scheduled to make his first spring appearance for Texas on Friday against San Diego, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Houston had taken Gose as a Rule 5 pick, but had no room for the left-hander and returned him to Texas earlier in March. Gose is a flamethrower, but as the Astros learned, the converted outfielder doesn't always know where his fastball is going.

Rangers' Anthony Gose: Back with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose was returned to Texas on Friday and assigned to the Triple-A Round Rock roster.

Gose was selected by the Astros in the Rule 5 draft this past December, but will go back to the Rangers after passing through waivers untouched earlier this week. He only appeared in one Grapefruit League game with the defending champs, and promptly walked all three batters he faced. The southpaw last appeared in a big-league game in 2016 with Detroit. He will spend the next few weeks in major-league camp and serve as organizational depth for the Rangers' bullpen during this upcoming campaign.

Astros' Anthony Gose: Placed on outright waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose was placed on outright waivers by the Astros on Monday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

Gose, a converted outfielder who was a Rule 5 pick by the Astros in December, struggled mightily in his only Grapefruit League appearance, walking all three batters he faced while looking confused by signs. As a result, the Astros decided to cut ties with the 27-year-old rather than attempt to keep him on their active roster all season. He'll be offered back to the Rangers if he passes through waivers untouched.

Astros' Anthony Gose: Walks all three batters faced
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose walked all three batters he faced and looked confused by signs Saturday, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 27-year-old converted outfielder was a Rule 5 pick by the Astros this winter. The lefty has an electric fastball but obviously very little pitching experience. He's fighting for a job in the deep Astros bullpen and will have to do significantly better next time out if he's to stay in consideration for a roster spot.

Astros' Anthony Gose: Scheduled to pitch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose (elbow) is listed on the Astros' pitching schedule for Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

Gose has been behind the other pitchers attending big-league camp while he continues to recover from an elbow injury he suffered last August, but after facing hitters this week, it looks like he's ready to make his spring debut. The 27-year-old, who converted to relief pitching last season after an unsuccessful five-year stint as an outfielder in the majors with the Blue Jays and Tigers, was a Rule 5 selection by the Astros this winter, so he'll need to remain on the big-league roster all season or else Houston forfeits his rights.

Astros' Anthony Gose: Throws live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose (elbow) threw his first live batting practice of the spring Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

Gose, a former outfielder, was converted to a pitcher by the Tigers in 2016, throwing 10.2 innings off the mound for High-A Lakeland before being shut down with an elbow injury. He was selected by the Astros in the Rule 5 draft in December and has a chance to make the team as a left-handed reliever, though the Astros have a very competitive roster. He's worth monitoring in deep leagues to see whether or not he can make the team, but even if he does, it will likely be in a middle-relief role, which won't provide much fantasy value in most setups.

Astros' Anthony Gose: Selected by Astros in Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose (elbow) was selected by the Astros with the 15th pick in the Rule 5 draft Thursday.

The Astros believed Gose had the most upside in the Rule 5 draft, citing his upper-90s fastball and power breaking ball from the left side. That said, it is clearly a bit of a lottery ticket, as Gose was only recently converted from the outfield to the mound, and was shut down in 2017 with an elbow injury while playing for the Rangers organization. He will need to earn a spot in Hiustin's bullpen this spring, as the Astros are in full-contention mode and don't have room to carry long-term projects on the active roster. Even if Gose maxes out, he would not be in line to get saves, so his upside would be capped as a high-strikeout setup man.

Rangers' Anthony Gose: Signs with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with Texas on Thursday, Anthony Fenech of Free Press Sports reports.

Gose is set to play both ways with the Rangers this season, earning time out of the bullpen and in center field after converting from the outfield this past spring. During the 2017 season with Detroit's High-A team, he posted a 7.59 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 10.2 innings, but wasn't able to pitch after July 2 due to an elbow injury. Gose didn't undergo any type of surgery, and he should be able to hit the field next spring without any limitations. He has high-end arm strength, and at this point, the former top outfield prospect's best bet at being a useful contributor in the majors is as a power reliever.

Tigers' Anthony Gose: Shut down with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose has been shut down with an elbow injury, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

It's unclear when the injury cropped up on Gose -- as he hasn't pitched since July 2 -- but the Tigers don't believe it's serious enough to require surgery, which is good news. Still, he remains without a timetable for return as the Tigers try not to push the converted outfielder. The 26-year-old compiled a 7.59 ERA and 14 strikeouts in 10.2 innings with High-A Lakeland before being shut down.

Tigers' Anthony Gose: Could move through minors quickly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose's advanced age (he's 26) could accelerate his path through the minor leagues as a pitching prospect, Evan Woodbery of reports.

The converted outfielder made his professional debut as a pitcher on Monday for High-A Lakeland, and he hit 99 miles per hour on two occasions during the outing. Gose is 26, and Tigers manager Brad Ausmus says his development will be accelerated because of his age. While an MLB debut this season may be a longshot, he could realistically end up in Double-A or Triple-A by year's end, and possibly make the major league team as a pitcher in 2018 if he's effective.

Tigers' Anthony Gose: Lights up radar gun in mound debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose made his professional pitching debut Monday with High-A Lakeland, conceding one run on a hit and a walk while striking out a batter over one inning.

More notable than Gose's results was the premium velocity he flashed from the left side, with Lakeland manager Andrew Graham indicating the converted outfielder hit 99 miles per hour on two occasions during the evening, according to Vince Lara-Cinisomo of Baseball America. Gose, who had been working with pitching coaches at extended spring training for the first month and a half of the season prior to joining Lakeland, will need to show an ability to command his pitches better before climbing up the minor-league ladder.

Tigers' Anthony Gose: Will pitch for High-A club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose was assigned to High-A Lakeland on Monday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

After going through a crash course on pitching at extended spring training, Gose has finally received the green light to make his season debut in affiliated ball. The Tigers will have Gose work primarily as a reliever in the lower minors, but the organization doesn't appear to be closing the door entirely on the 26-year-old playing the outfield. Gose's fastball had been previously clocked in the mid-90s, so if he's able to command his pitches well and develop his secondary offerings, he could move through the farm system quickly.

Tigers' Anthony Gose: Will keep working as a pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gose is expected to stay in Florida for extended spring training to build up arm strength as a pitcher, Jason Beck of reports.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Gose will also work as an outfielder, so the team is not completely committed to the position switch or could be viewing him as a possible future two-way player. But Gose was primarily a pitcher during high school and reportedly featured a mid-90s fastball, so he may have some potential on the mound.
