DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Tigers have demoted outfielder Anthony Gose to Double-A Erie after he was in an altercation with Triple-A manager Lloyd McClendon during a game over the weekend.

The Tigers announced Wednesday that the 25-year-old Gose had his option transferred from Triple-A Toledo to Erie. They also said he'd been on the suspended list from Sunday until Wednesday. The Mud Hens have been off from Monday through Wednesday for their All-Star break.

Gose got in an argument with McClendon on Saturday and was removed from that game.

Gose has hit .209 in 30 games with the Tigers this season, and he was sent down to Toledo in May.
