Description: Anthony Gose has been a menace on the base paths this season in the Pacific Coast League. The Las Vegas 51 outfielder leads all Triple-A base stealers with 24 stolen bases in 29 attempts.
Insight: Gose is also hitting .294 with 3 HRs and 26 RBIs in 52 games for the 51s and is hoping to get his first taste of major league experience with the Blue Jays later this season.
