Gose gets the Call

By on May 21, 2013
Yesterday the Blue Jays called up  Anthony Gose from the Buffalo Bison  the AAA team of the International League.
 Gose played today in a 7-5 win over Tampa Bay when he entered the game in left replacing Melky Cabrera.  Gose was 0-1 flying out to left in the home half of the eighth.

Drafted by the Phillies in 2008, was traded to Toronto via a three team deal with the Hosuton Astros in July of 2010.  The deal involved Roy Oswalt being dealt to the Phillies for J.A. Happ, Jonathan Villar and Gose from Houston.  Gose was then traded by Houston for Brett Wallace.  (Happ was eventually traded to Toronto from Houston in July of last year in a multi-player deal)
Gose has been billed by some baseball prognosticators as the “heir apparent” to
Vernon Wells.  What do you think?
Prior to today Gose  has spent all of 2013 with Buffalo, batting .227 with a .343 on base percentage,  five doubles, two triples, two home runs and five stolen bases. The 6-1, 195 pound, left-handed hitter made his Major League debut last season with Toronto, appearing in 56 games, batting .223 with one home run, 11 RBI and 15 stolen bases. The Paramount, California native has hit .261 over six minor league seasons, adding 233 stolen bases in 551 games.

To make room for Gose right handed pitcher Mickey Storey has been optioned to Buffalo.  Mickey appeared in two games for Toronto since joining the club on May 9th. The 6-1, 185 pound, right-hander allowed three runs in 3.2 innings along with six hits, one walk and five strikeouts.
