Gossett will throw live batting practice Friday with High-A Stockton, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Gossett has been throwing bullpen sessions since mid-June but this will be his first time facing live hitters since undergoing Tommy John surgery in August 2018. The 26-year-old isn't expected to make his return in 2019, but he appears to be progressing steadily in his rehab work.

The session was especially notable in that it was Gossett's first time back on a mound since he underwent Tommy John surgery in August 2018. Manager Bob Melvin still doesn't factor Gossett into his 2019 plans, but he also reported that the veteran impressed him with his effort level during the session. Gossett is likely to log several additional bullpens before potentially moving on to throwing live batting practice.
Gossett (elbow) has resumed throwing off flat ground from 120 feet, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Gossett underwent Tommy John surgery last August, with the timing of the procedure making it unlikely he would be able to pitch at any point in 2019. That still remains a strong possibility, but Gossett's ability to initiate a throwing program this spring theoretically gives him a shot at returning in the second half. Gossett is probably at least a few months away from facing hitters in a simulated-game situation, an activity that would provide a better barometer regarding how he's trending in his recovery.
Gossett (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list.
This is simply procedural, as Gossett is expected to miss most, if not all, of the 2019 campaign recovering from Tommy John surgery that he underwent last summer.
Gossett (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday.
Gossett will likely miss the entire 2019 season recovering from this injury after suffering a setback during his rehab earlier this month. The 25-year-old had started five games for the Athletics this season, logging a 5.18 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.
Gossett (elbow) suffered a setback during his rehab and has been shut down from all throwing activities, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Gossett had recently resumed throwing last week after hitting the disabled list with a flexor muscle strain in early June. The club has yet to announce any sort of timetable for him at this point, but it doesn't look like Gossett has much chance of returning prior to September, especially if he's shut down for a few weeks.
The Athletics transferred Gossett to the 60-day disabled list Saturday.
The transaction was strictly procedural, as Gossett has been sidelined since early June and wasn't on track to rejoin the Athletics in fewer than 60 days. At this point in his rehab, Gossett has progressed to throwing off flat ground, but he has several hurdles to clear in the recovery process before being an option for the Oakland rotation.
Gossett (elbow) has resumed throwing and has already worked up to doing so from up to 90 feet, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
This is particularly good news, considering Gossett had yet to be cleared for doing any type of throwing as recently as July 4. The right-hander still isn't likely to return before mid-August, but he certainly appears close to logging a bullpen session if he remains free of setbacks.
Gossett (elbow) has been doing plyometrics but has yet to resume throwing, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The fact that the right-hander has yet to even pick up a baseball means that he's not a candidate to return until mid-August at the earliest. Gossett exited a June 3 start versus the Royals with right elbow tightness, and an MRI eventually revealed a flexor muscle strain. The 25-year-old owns a 5.18 ERA and 1.36 WHIP over 24.2 innings across five starts at the big-league level this season.
Gossett (elbow), who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, is dealing with a flexor muscle strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Gossett won't throw for multiple weeks as a result of the injury, meaning he'll be sidelined well beyond the minimum 10-day stay on the shelf. A timetable for his return should emerge once he's able to resume throwing.
Gossett (elbow) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday.
Gossett experienced elbow tightness in his start Sunday against the Royals, and after undergoing an MRI on Monday it was determined he'll need a stint on the disabled list. The severity of his injury remains unknown, but he won't be eligible to return from the DL until June 15.
Gossett, who was removed from Sunday's start against the Royals with right elbow tightness, will fly to Oakland on Monday for an MRI, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
It had been previously announced that the right-hander would be seen by doctors in the coming days, so this latest report offers more clarity with respect to his evaluation timeline. If Gossett is ultimately forced into a stint on the disabled list, Slusser reports that Chris Bassitt appears to be the leading candidate for a promotion from Triple-A Nashville.

Gossett cruised through five innings before exiting with the injury, allowing just one run on two hits and two walks and striking out a batter during the 63-pitch outing. The Athletics will presumably send Gossett in for a more thorough examination after the game before having a better idea regarding his status for his next scheduled start, which would likely fall Saturday at home against Kansas City. If Gossett isn't available to take the hill next weekend, the Athletics wouldn't have many appealing alternatives on hand, especially after Kendall Graveman landed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Nashville on Sunday with a forearm strain, per Slusser.
Gossett (0-3) took the loss Tuesday, allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings against the Rays.
All the damage was done via the long ball in the third inning, as Gossett allowed a trio of consecutive two-out solo home runs to C.J. Cron, Joey Wendle and Wilson Ramos. The 25-year-old sports an unsightly 6.05 ERA on the season, but it's just 3.00 in his two most recent starts since being recalled from Triple-A Nashville. Next up is a favorable matchup against the Royals in Kansas City on Sunday.
Gossett (0-2) allowed just one unearned run on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts through seven innings in a tough loss Wednesday against the Mariners.
Gossett had yet to get an out in the fifth inning in two starts for the A's this season despite his success in the minors (1.63 ERA, 1.10 WHIP in 38.2 innings for Triple-A Nashville). His slider was excellent, as it induced four swinging strikes and five outs in six balls in play on just 35 uses. If Gossett is able to pair a strong breaking pitch like that with his mid-to-upper 90s fastball, he'll have a good chance to turn around his early career struggles. Gossett managed just a 6.11 ERA in 91.1 innings last season. He'll make his next start Monday against the Rays.
Gossett was recalled from Triple-A Nashville and will start Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
As expected, Gossett will join the big-league rotation with Andrew Triggs (forearm) and Brett Anderson (shoulder) both landing on the disabled list. The 25-year-old right-hander has scuffled through a pair of spot starts with the A's this season, allowing nine runs across 7.1 innings, but owns a shiny 1.63 ERA across 38.2 innings with the Sounds.
Gossett will start Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
The move has been expected for a few days as starting pitchers Andrew Triggs (forearm) and Brett Anderson (shoulder) were both recently placed on the disabled list. Gossett struggled in his two major-league starts in 2018, but has been lights out for Triple-A Nashville with a 1.63 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with 42 strikeouts over 38.2 innings.
Gossett is a candidate to be called up from Triple-A Nashville in the wake of recent injuries to Athletics starters, Susan Slusser of SFGate.com reports.
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 extra-inning 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 either. 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.
