Anthony Gose Goes AWOL in Toledo
Anthony Gose's time in the Detroit organization is likely over.
In May, Anthony Gose was sent down to Toledo with a measly .209 batting average in 30 games. Since the demotion, he has gotten worse. Gose is batting just .185 in 50 games with Toledo, and slugging .266. He also has twice as many plate appearances with the Mud Hens than he did with the Tigers.
The numbers point to full scale regression for Gose.
Reports have surfaced recently that Gose got into a shouting match in the dugout with Toledo manager Lloyd McLendon on Saturday. The tempers seemed to spill over for Gose as he was absent from the team on Sunday.
No suspension was announced by the league or the team.
With the struggling numbers, insubordination, and massive outfield depth the Tigers currently possess, it seems easy to write Gose completely out of the picture given this debacle.
