June 17, 2019
Gosselin cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
It's not particularly surprising that no team was all that excited about claiming a 30-year-old with a career 78 wRC+. Gosselin will remain as organizational utility depth for the Phillies, though he's behind Sean Rodriguez and Brad Miller in that role.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Gosselin played all over the field for the Diamondbacks in a reserve role last season. His primary position was second base, where he played 35 games, but he also made 10 appearances at third, six at first and three in the outfield. His versatility as a backup is an asset to the Diamondbacks, but it doesn't matter much in fantasy if he's not playing close to every day. Gosselin logged 220 at-bats in 2016 and slashed .277/.324/.368. The 220 at-bats were more than double the 106 he received in 2015 with Atlanta and Arizona, so the uptick in opportunities was a pleasant surprise. However, following a trade to a Pirates organization that features a multitude of other options at each position he plays, Gosselin seems unlikely to match last season's playing time.
Gosselin was acquired from Atlanta in a June trade that sent veteran pitcher Bronson Arroyo and pitching prospect Touki Toussaint to the Braves. He primarily played as a reserve infielder for the Diamondbacks, though he did make several appearances in the outfield. In his limited MLB experience over the past three seasons (261 total plate appearances), Gosselin has hit .288, so he has shown some promise at the plate. Playing time will be the key to his 2016 fantasy outlook. In a reserve role, Gosselin is of course limited, but if he is able to find his way into semi-regular playing time, Gosselin could be a decent option if he maintains his high average over more plate appearances. For now, he’s not really on the radar as a fantasy asset in most leagues.
Gosselin broke out at Triple-A Gwinnett last season, slashing .344/.379/.487 with five homers and six steals in 96 games, earning a promotion to the big club shortly after the All-Star break. He was used sparingly at first, but as he continued to hit in a limited role and Tommy La Stella continued to struggle, the decision was made to give Gosselin an audition in the starting role in September. While Gosselin failed to do much with the extending playing time, notching just three extra-base hits in the month, it looks like he may get an opportunity to start at second base to begin 2015, with La Stella since shipped to the Cubs. The 26-year-old Gosselin will likely prove little more than a placeholder for 20-year-old Jose Peraza, who's considered by many to be the long-term solution at second base for the Braves, and Gosselin's lack of a track record at the major league level will put him outside of fantasy consideration outside the deepest of leagues come draft day.
