Guardians to promote outfielder-turned-reliever Anthony Gose

Olympic silver medalist and former outfielder Anthony Gose is being called up by the Cleveland Guardians. He won’t be roaming Progressive Field’s outfield any time soon, though — the 31-year-old will likely make his debut as a reliever.

Gose’s last MLB action came in 2016 as a member of the Tigers’ lineup. His already limited offensive contributions as a hitter were dwindling and he finished the year with a .209/.287/.341 slash and two home runs in 30 games. His career was just five years in but it already looked like it was winding down.

Gose began a new chapter as a pitcher in Detroit’s minor-league system in 2017 before finding his way over to Cleveland in 2019 after a few cuts, a failed Rule 5 selection, and a tiff with his minor-league manager. It’s been a steady ascension since then for the right-hander, going from High-A to Double-A in 2019 and playing all of 2021 in Triple-A.

To this point, the highlight of his pitching career has been pitching 5.1 innings for Team USA in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Gose, who has been noted as hitting 100 mph with his four-seamer, has been electric since returning stateside to the Triple-A Columbus Clippers on Aug. 15.
