Anthony Gose Will Go To Houston In Roy Oswalt Trade

New, comments

We already knew that J.A. Happ would be part of the package to land Roy Oswalt. Jim Salisbury gives us another name:

Gose and Happ are definite, sources say.

Gose is a soon-to-be 20 year old center fielder who's hit .263/.325/.385 with A+ Clearwater. He runs very well, having stolen 76 bases a year ago and having hit 11 triples already this season, and he has defensive upside in the middle. As a groundball hitter, though, his power potential is extremely limited, and he strikes out a lot, with 103 whiffs against just 32 walks in 461 trips to the plate. He profiles a lot like another Michael Bourn, but he's still a ways away.

Right now, it seems that the package will end up being Happ, Gose, and the previously-named Vance Worley.
