The talk is that Gose is ready to come up and replace Colby. The domino effect would be that Lawrie would play second where he played in the minors, Jose would go back to third, Izturis would play short, Gose would take over center with a combination of Melky/Rajai and Bonifacio on the corner OF spots. This is just speculation at this point but absent a trade something has to be changed.
From a fantasy perspective Lawrie and Jose become more valuable with multiposition availability and Gose is intriguing.
Pure speculation on your part. Nothing to substantiate this to this at this point other than the 1 or 2 minor league games Lawrie played at 2nd in A ball on his rehab assignment. One of the Jays biggest weaknesses is team defense and these moves don't help that at all. I do think that JPA and Rasmus need to earn playing time and not be allowed to go to the plate flailing at pitches getting behind from the start of almost every AB. JPA is also a terrible terrible terrible defender. I do think that Gose and Thole should be recalled to challenge these 2 in particular for playing time. Absolutely 0 accountability on this team.
