The 25-year-old right-hander has been effective with the Sounds, generating a 4-0 record, 1.63 ERA and .190 BAA across 38.2 innings. Gossett hasn't yet experienced anywhere near the same level of success against big-league bats, however, as he sports a 6.48 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 20 starts with the Athletics over the last two seasons. However, with both Andrew Triggs (forearm) and Brett Anderson (shoulder) now on the disabled list and Gossett impressing at the Triple-A level, he appears to have a solid chance at a promotion.
Gossett fired four scoreless innings in Triple-A Nashville's 6-3 loss to Iowa on Thursday, allowing one hit and two walks while recording four strikeouts.
Sent down to Nashville after his second big-league start of 2018 last Saturday, Gossett was dominant in his first appearance with the Sounds. The 25-year-old has shown the ability to compete at the Triple-A level in two prior stops, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him thrive during his current stint. However, Gossett is yet to prove he can consistently get big-league hitters out, having compiled a 6.48 ERA and 1.63 WHIP while allowing 22 home runs over 98.2 innings across 20 starts with the Athletics over the last season-plus.
Gossett will be sent down to Triple-A Nashville prior to Saturday's game against the Angels, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Gossett didn't factor into Friday's decision after allowing five runs on five hits and a walk over the course of 3.1 innings. The 25-year-old fared a little better during his first start against the Angels on April 1, but he wasn't able to last longer than four innings in that start as well. In a corresponding move, Oakland is expected to place Trayce Thompson on the active roster. Looking ahead, the club won't need a fifth starter until April 17, when Trevor Cahill is likely to be recalled from Nashville.
Gossett surrendered five runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three batters through 3.1 innings during Friday's 13-9 loss to the Angels. He didn't factor into the decision.
The 25-year-old righty has now allowed nine runs through 7.1 innings over his first two starts, and after recording a 6.11 ERA and 1.61 WHIP during the 2017 campaign, Gossett probably shouldn't be relied on against the majority of opponents. If the luxury exists, it's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach with him in AL-only formats, and he's off the fantasy radar in most mixed setups.
Gossett (0-1) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks over four innings in a loss Sunday to the Angels.
Gossett was awful in 18 starts for Oakland last season, as he posted a 6.11 ERA and 1.61 WHIP and gave up more than a home run per starts. The Angels didn't mash any homers against Gossett on Sunday, but they did touch him up for three doubles in just four innings. There's no reason yet to believe he's a substantially different pitcher than the one who limped through 2017.
