After getting into a verbal skirmish with Triple-A manager Lloyd McClendon during last weekend, Toledo Mud Hens outfielder Anthony Gose was sent home by McClendon on Saturday and reportedly was a no-show for Sunday’s game.
On Wednesday, we learned what the Tigers brass did regarding the situation and how they handled it.

Gose has been gradually free-falling since the 2016 year began. He hit just .209/.287/.341 in 30 games with Detroit earlier this season before being optioned and it’s just gotten worse. In 50 games with the Hens, Gose is hitting a very poor .185/.255/.266 and striking out nearly 41 percent of the time.
