by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (5/6/2013) Blue Jays outfield prospect Anthony Gose's steals total continues to be disappointing at Triple-A Buffalo. The speedster has just three steals through 27 games and has been caught stealing (four) more times than he's had success swiping a bag.
Gose is batting .262 with a .367 on-base percentage, one home run, two triples, four doubles, 10 RBI and 23 runs. He also has 23 strikeouts and 14 walks.
Blue Jays not ready to promote Anthony Gose
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (4/15/2013) Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Monday he hasn't had any thought of promoting outfield prospect Anthony Gose. He said the team wants to see Gose "master the level" at Triple-A Buffalo before recalling him.
Gose is batting .313 (10 for 32) with one double, one triple, three RBI and eight runs in eight games. Surprisingly, he has no stolen bases and was caught stealing twice.
Former star to shed light on Anthony Gose
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (4/9/2013) In an attempt to help the team's minor-league players hone their base-stealing prowess, the Blue Jays hired former leadoff star Tim Raines as a base-running instructor. Raines, who has been on the job for the past month, said he was eager to work with Anthony Gose, considered one of Toronto's top overall prospects.
"I talked to him a little, but not to any great extent. It will be interesting. He has great potential," Raines told the Toronto Sun. "From Day 1, I saw he seemed like a confident guy. He’s not afraid to tell you how good he is. So, that’s going to be quite interesting for me, because I’m not really that kind of guy. I’m kind of looking forward to it though."
Two optioned to Triple-A for Toronto
by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com (3/25/2013) The Toronto Blue Jays optioned relief pitcher Brad Lincoln and outfielder Anthony Gose to Triple-A Buffalo Monday, reports MLB.com.
Lincoln was hoping to claim a spot in Toronto's opening day bullpen, but came down with shoulder inflammation last weekend and likely won't be ready for the start of the regular season. He could come back and join the bullpen once he's ready.
Gose has seen some time up in the majors and posted a solid .279 batting average over 54 plate appearances this spring. Still, the Jays want him to see regular playing time in the minors as the 22-year-old is still developing.
Gose having MVP-type spring
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (3/13/2013) Blue Jays outfielder Anthony Gose has been an outstanding source of offense for Toronto this spring. Through 11 spring games, Gose is batting .367 (11 for 30) with one double, one triple, one homer, two RBI, nine runs and five stolen bases. However, no matter how well Gose is playing, he's expected to open the year in Triple-A. "I kind of had a sense where I'd be heading when everything happened, all the trades and signings," Gose said, per MLB.com. "It was tough then, but the closer spring got and the more time that had passed, I kind of got over it and I've come to terms with that in my own head." Manager John Gibbons is impressed with the outfield prospect. "He's had a great spring, arguably the MVP of the team," Gibbons said. "He's on a mission. He wants to be in the big leagues, and he may deserve to be in the big leagues, but that's probably not the way it's going to start because we have the other guys."
Gose shows his potential
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer (3/8/2013) Blue Jays 22-year-old outfielder Anthony Gose, who got 166 at-bats in the majors late last year, went 3 for 4 with a home run, two RBI, four runs scored and two stolen bases Friday at the Braves, improving his spring average to .375. After the game, manager John Gibbons raved about Gose, who stole 49 bases between stints in Triple-A Las Vegas and Toronto last year. "His time is coming," Gibbons said. "He might not be here at the start, but he's not just a speed runner. He has a lot of pop in that bat."
