Focus Area
Hitting Ability:Gose has a line-drive swing to the gaps and it was on display at the showcase.
Power:He's shown some glimpses of power, but it's something that has gotten him into trouble at times.
Running Speed:Gose is a plus runner. He had the event's best 60-yard dash time at 6.5 seconds.
Base Running:While learning the nuances of base stealing usually comes later, Gose does have some awareness on the basepaths.
Arm Strength:Also a pitcher, Gose has plus arm strength and has been clocked as high as 95 mph off the mound.
Fielding:Gose is an outstanding defender who makes exciting plays with regularity.
Range:He can cover a lot of ground in the outfield.
Physical Description:Only listed as 5-foot-11, he's bigger than you'd think. Gose is an athletic and muscular toolsy outfielder. He has the chance to be the complete package.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Tools to spare with plus speed and arm strength right now and plenty of projection to be had.
Weaknesses:The flashes of power sometime cause Gose to muscle up too much. When he tries to get big, he exposes holes in his swing.
Summary:Depending on how he develops, Gose could fit one of two types. He could be a Corey Patterson type, one who flashes brilliance and hits for power but strikes out a lot. He also could be a Juan Pierre type, a leadoff hitter who sprays line drives and steals bases. Either way, someone will draft the Urban Youth Academy product based on his projectability.
