Former Outfielder Touches 100MPH in MLB Pitching Debut

Cleveland Indians reliever Anthony Gose isn't your typical reliever. Not many across the MLB have experience playing the outfield, but that's certainly the case for the one-time highly touted prospect of the Toronto Blue Jays. On Monday night, Gose made the big leagues once again, this time as a southpaw reliever who throws gas.

Not only has he impressed for the Indians organization this season, he's done it in style. Gose consistently hits 100MPH on the radar, and is still working on his off-speed and secondary pitches. His numbers in AAA this season are solid. Gose struck out 49 in 33 innings, hitting 100 mph on the radar gun and consistently throwing in the upper 90s. He walked 28 and was 6-1 with a 3.55 ERA in 28 games. Gose has pitched 13 scoreless innings, striking out 21 and walking six, in his past 11 appearances.
