Former Clemson pitcher Daniel Gossett was called back up from Triple-A Nashville to the Oakland A’s Wednesday.
Gossett is set to start in a 3:05 p.m. ET game in Baltimore versus the Orioles. This is the Spartanburg native’s second time around with the club this season after making 10 starts from June 14-August 2.
The Byrnes product finished his last major league stint on a strong note, allowing one run in seven innings in a win over Bay Area rival San Francisco. Gossett is 3-6 on the season with a 5.17 ERA and 1.39 WHIP.
At the AAA level this season, Gossett holds a 3.66 ERA and 4-4 record, posting 71 strikeouts to 24 walks. In his last two outings, he scattered 14 hits with 16 strikeouts, going 1-1.
In his final campaign as a Tiger, Gossett went 7-2 with a 1.93 ERA, earning second-team All-America honors and first-team All-ACC. He was drafted in the second round (No. 65 overall pick) by the Athletics in 2014.
