Toronto Blue Jays Recall Anthony Gose From Triple-A

The Toronto Blue Jays have surprised everyone by recalling Anthony Gose from Triple-A, even though the talented prospect was hitting .227 with two homers and five steals this season in Buffalo. The Blue Jays decided to option right-hander Mickey Storey to Buffalo instead. Storey has only played two games for Toronto, allowing three runs in 3 2/3 innings.

“Definitely surprised,” said Gose, who hit .223 in 56 major league games with Toronto last season. “”I didn’t even know what to think. They called me this morning, told me I was going up. I kept asking was it real? I didn’t know what was happening. … I just couldn’t believe I was going up.”

Now that Gose will be a part of the lineup, the Blue Jays will be able to rest Melky Cabrera more, who has a hamstring that’s been bothering him. Gose had a .343 on-base percentage in 40 games with the Bisons this season, along with five doubles, two triples, and two home runs.
