Cleveland Guardians not affectionate Anthony Gose, Luke Maile

Guardians catchers Luke Maile (12) and Austin Hedges, right, celebrate after the Guardians defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 in the 15th inning of Game 2 of the wild card series against the Tampa Bay Rays, Saturday, Aug October 2022, in Cleveland.

The Guardians have tendered non-tendered relief pitcher Anthony Gose and catcher Luke Maile to seven arbitration-eligible players before Friday night’s deadline.

Gose is recovering from surgery on Tommy John and was scheduled for deployment last week. He struggled to continue a positive, albeit brief, performance in 2021 (1.26 ERA in 14⅓ innings), posting a 4.71 ERA in 21 innings before going down with the injury.

Maile served as the club’s backup to Austin Hedges at the catcher for most of the year, hitting .221 with a .627 OPS in 206 plate appearances. Both are known for their defensive skills behind the plate and both are now free agents. Hedges became a free agent at the end of the World Series. At least one could return as the only catchers in the club’s 40-man squad are rookies Bo Naylor and Bryan Lavastida.
