Anthony Gose, P
This former position player turned pitcher really needed a minor-league season to showcase his abilities.
With the season cancelled, he didn’t get the chance.
Mothers, raise your sons to be left-handers, though, because Gose (30), is reported to throw triple-digit heat.
That said, the Indians will need to see improved command from the former outfielder. As noted by MLB.com’s Mandy Bell, Gose was on the right track with his control during Spring Training 2020. Alas, no season, means Gose has to prove himself some more.
Cleveland.com’s Paul Hoynes noted that Gose is going to get a chance, though. Bullpens see turnover every season, it’s the nature of the job.
Heck, the Tribe just brought back Oliver Perez on a minor-league deal–probably not a bad idea considering Gose and Kyle Nelson were the only lefty relievers on the roster.
If Gose pitches well, he should see a rapid ascent to the big leagues. Considering his age, there’s no time to waste. Get him up here and let him fire that cannon!
