The left-handed pitcher will be in his second season with the La Romana team after a successful stint in the Major Leagues in 2021.
The Bulls of the East, in the figure of its general manager Raymond Abreu, announced the hiring for the second consecutive season of the pitcher Anthony Gose.
The left-handed reliever was one of the best imported arms of the season, being a quality reinforcement for the La Romana team.
Gose saw action in 10 games in the regular season allowing just five hits in 10 full innings while conceding one earned run and three walks.
The California native had a 0.90 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and struck out a dozen opponents, getting 3 holds.

In the 2020-21 semifinal series, he had a 4.91 ERA while allowing 2 runs, 2 walks and 3 hits in 3 2/3 innings with 3 strikeouts.
“The Gose story is great. It is not normal to see a Major League outfielder become a pitcher and return to the big team in his new role. Once again he will be of great help in the Romans bullpen, now with more experience and his powerful fastball that reaches 100 MPH ”, expressed Abreu, manager of the Toros.
Gose was in the Major Leagues from 2012 to 2016 as an outfielder in Toronto blue jays and Detroit Tigers, and in this 2021 at 30 years of age he saw action in six games with the Cleveland Indians as a pitcher.
With the Indians, he pitched 6.2 innings in 6 games with a 1.35 ERA, allowing two hits, one earned run and two walks, striking out 9 opponents.
The Bulls now have seven imported reinforcements with the additions of Jake Thompson, Tyler Eppler, Josh Lueke, Jorge Martínez, Beau Taylor and Peter O’Brien. The La Romana team plays its first preseason games Monday and Tuesday against the Eastern Stars.
