Tigers' Anthony Gose, Alex Avila held out of lineup on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:53 pm ET) Tigers center fielder Anthony Gose and catcher Alex Avila were not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox. 

Gose had started three straight games for manager Brad Ausmus, and had a nice game on Tuesday. He will get a breather while Rajai Davis leads off and plays center field.

As expected, Avila will sit with lefty Chris Sale on the mound for the White Sox. Avila has just one hit in 11 at-bats against lefties this season. He was replaced in the lineup by James McCann

(9:16 am ET) Making his third consecutive start for the Tigers on Tuesday, center fielder Anthony Gose recorded two hits, stole a base and scored a run in the 5-2 loss to the White Sox. Gose, who has mostly been in a platoon with Rajai Davis, has started five of the last seven games for manager Brad Ausmus, and seems to be taking a grasp on the bulk of the playing time.

Gose has been fairly inconsistent in recent games, hitting .259 with 10 strikeouts (to just two walks) over his last eight games played.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) It remains to be seen if Tigers leadoff hitter Anthony Gose has ended his mini-slump. But he certainly got off to a good start in that task Saturday night in Kansas City.

Gose had three hits in his previous 19 at-bats heading into the game, but he doubled that hit total in the victory. He doubled, singled twice and scored in the fifth inning to improve his slash line to .322/.355/.475.

Rajai Davis moved to right field and will bat ninth, while Anthony Gose remained in the leadoff spot and in center field.

Detroit is favored (-125) at Kansas City, per VegasInsider.com.

Flurry of strikeouts prompts Ausmus to bench Tigers OF Gose


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) A spate of strikeouts motivated Brad Ausmus to bench Tigers leadoff hitter Anthony Gose against Cleveland on Saturday.

Gose hadn't stopped hitting - he managed six hits in his last 22 at-bats and owns a .333/.348/.511 slash line on the year with eight runs scored. But he has tallied just twice in the last seven games and has been stirring up plenty of wind. He fanned 10 times in 17 at-bats over the last four games.

"He's just in a little bit of a funk right now," Ausmus told MLB.com. "He's not swinging like was a week ago. It doesn't hurt to give him a day to regroup and work on some things in the cage."

Ausmus: Rajai Davis will face lefties, Anthony Gose will face RHPs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis is slated to face the vast majority of shouthpaws and outfielder Anthony Gose will face the majority of right-handed pitchers to start the season, manager Brad Ausmus told reporters, per the Detroit Free Press on Wednesday.

"Raj is going to see probably the vast majority of the lefties," Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "Anthony's going to see the majority of the righties. And there's going to be times where Raj, whether it's a matchup situation or he just needs to play because we haven't seen a lefty, is also going to face righties. You probably could say the same thing about the catchers."

Davis slashed .304/.358/.446 with 15 homers and 87 RBI over 951 career at-bats against left-handed pitchers. Gose is a career .241 hitter with five home runs and 32 at-bats against right-handed hitters. He is hitting leadoff against the Twins on Wednesday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers' Ausmus chooses Davis over Gose for opener due to matchup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis drew the start in center field for Monday's season opener against the Twins over outfielder Anthony Gose. Manager Brad Ausmus said it was because of Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes' reverse splits, per MLive.com.

Davis is batting .269 (7 for 29) with four doubles and four RBI in his career against Hughes.

"Rajai had a nice year for us, so part of me was glad it was reverse splits," Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press. "It gave me an excuse to play Raj on Opening Day."

Davis is expected to share playing time in center field with Gose this season.

"I'm not worried about that," Davis said. "The bottom line is, the best team is going to go out there on the field. I'm confident that our manager is going to put the best team out there and whatever that is, I guess we'll have to wait and see."


Tigers OF Anthony Gose could earn leadoff spot


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Tigers outfielder Anthony Gose has been impressive this spring in the eyes of manager Brad Ausmus, according to MLB.com

"I think Gose is a very viable option against right-handed pitchers at the leadoff spot," Ausmus said Tuesday night.

Ausmus believes that Gose has played well this spring, but he wants to see him continue to flourish.

"It's nice that he's being successful," he said, "but I want to continue to see good swings. That's the most important thing. Even if he doesn't get hits, I want to see good swings, good approaches."

Gose entered Tuesday going 1 for 16 in his latest appearances. He then singled, stole second and scored after another single from Yoenis Cespedes.

Ausmus had more to say on the performance of Gose, and what he needs to accomplish going forward. 

"Overall, he's had very good swings," Ausmus said. "I think early on he was a little more consistent, then he got into a little bit of a funk. But even when he was in a little bit of a funk, he'd usually have one at-bat a game where he looked right. And I know he's working hard on it in the cage. He's trying to make it consistent. But with hitters, it's a battle to avoid traps and mechanical failure. It happens."


Tigers CF Anthony Gose strives to be ready for start of season


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) Tigers centerfielder Anthony Gose isn't concerned with winning the starting job, he just wants to be ready to go for the start of the season.

Gose was a career .234 hitter during his time with the Blue Jays. He has excelled in the Grapefruit League this season batting .520. 

"Of course I'm pleased because things have been so positive," Gose said. "But it's only spring. Things change when the lights come on."

Gose is not letting his success in spring training get to his head.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has yet to say how much playing time Gose will receive.

"He still continues to hit the ball well," Ausmus said. "But I think he's probably being smart when he says he's not getting carried away because it's just spring."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Tigers outfielder Anthony Gose continued his torrid start to the spring during Thursday's game against the Astros. Gose doubled, tripled and drove in two runs in three at-bats.

Avila, Gose among options to bat second for Tigers vs. RHPs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday he is "seriously considering" batting catcher Alex Avila second in the order against right-handed pitchers, per MLive.com. Anthony Gose appears to be the other main option, but Gose could also lead off, which would allow Ian Kinsler to bat second.

Ausmus added Jose Iglesias could also work into the mix, but he doesn't see Yoenis Cespedes, J.D. Martinez or Nick Castellanos as options to bat second.


Tigers' Ausmus excited about the arrival of OF Anthony Gose


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is not hiding his excitement about the acquisition of outfielder Anthony Gose, who was picked up in a November trade with the Blue Jays.

"This is a guy that everyone has touted since he was a teenager," Ausmus said during a radio interview Monday, according to the Detroit Free Press. "I don't want to put pressure on him and say, 'impact player,' because he's probably not going to be that for us right away. But he has that type of ability inside him.

"He's an extremely athletic kid. This is a kid who can easily go into the gaps to run down balls. He's got a cannon for an arm."

While Gose is touted for his speed and defensive prowess, his offense has been lacking at the major-league level. He has just a .234 average in 202 career games. Although, Ausmus still has hope Gose will improve offensively.

"There is a little learning curve to hitting, certainly at the major-league level," Ausmus said. "But we're hoping his athleticism and (Tigers hitting coach) Wally Joyner can make him turn that corner."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said the team is counting on recently acquired outfielder Anthony Gose to be the team's starting center fielder in 2015, per the Detroit Free Press.
