"Strike out and next thing you know you're going to the big leagues," Gose said, adding that he had a hard time sleeping on his red-eye flight across the country. "Exciting, nerve-racking. The feeling's indescribable. ... I still don't know what to think right now."
But he has a simple plan for his first stint in the big leagues.
"Put the bat on the ball and run fast," Gose said. "From where I started to where I am now, it's night and day."
Gose was hitting .292 at Las Vegas and leading the Pacific Coast League with 29 stolen bases. He had five homers, 10 triples and 41 RBIs. He was acquired by the Blue Jays from Houston in July 2010 for first baseman Brett Wallace.
Farrell said Gose will likely play right field against righties and could be in the leadoff spot Wednesday.
To make room for him on the 40-man roster, the Blue Jays transferred right-hander Brandon Morrow from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL.
