CONOR GILLASPIE RUMORS

Sox Find New Outfielder

Apparently the Sox have been looking for a new outfielder to increase roster flexibility, and they may have found their man. Conor Gillaspie, the dynamic third basemen who is sporting a .309/.360/.451 slash line right now, plans on getting a few looks in the outfield the rest of the season. It’s been well documented that the Sox bullpen has pitched the team out of playoff contention...

Gillaspie in Two-Hole Makes Too Much Sense

It’s been since the 2005-2006 seasons when the White Sox have had the same player bat second in the order over 100 times in consecutive seasons, when Tadahito Iguchi accomplished that. Before Iguchi, a Sox player hadn’t done that since Luis Aparicio in 1969-1970 (although Joey Cora was on his way to accomplishing such if there was no strike in 1994). You can probably imagine...

WATCH: Nick Markakis robs Conor Gillaspie of go-ahead HR

With the White Sox trailing the Orioles 3-2 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Nick Markakis robbed Conor Gillaspie of what would have been a go-ahead two run homer. Not content with taking away Chicago’s chance at tying the game, Markakis capped off a five-run eighth inning for Baltimore with a two-run homer of his own to right field with a little more lift than Gillaspie’s fly out had.

Gillaspie shows knee isn't an issue as White Sox top Red Sox

Maybe a day off wasn’t such a bad thing for Conor Gillaspie. Both the third baseman and his manager suggested 24 hours of rest could have given Gillaspie an extra boost in Tuesday night’s 8-3 White Sox victory over the Boston Red Sox in front of 35,345 at Fenway Park. Gillaspie, who missed Monday’s game with a bruised right knee, had three hits, including a go-ahead, two...

Rays select switch-hitting 1B Casey Gillaspie with 20th overall pick

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays selected first baseman Casey Gillaspie with the 20th overall pick in the 2014 draft on Thursday.

Gillaspie Over Davidson? Give me a break!

Later this month when Spring Training kicks off, the White Sox will have at least a couple positional battles underway. The fifth starter and a bullpen role or two will certainly be up for grabs, but the same can't quite be said for the third base job.

Prospect Question: Does Profile Matter?

So I have started working on my Giants top prospect list, and while doing so I have had a hard time ranking two third base prospects, Conor Gillaspie and Chris Dominguez. On my rough list I have Gillaspie at 13 and Dominguez at 15, but I am wondering if I have one or both too high, and which one should be ranked as the better prospect. Some background on these prospects: Conor Gillaspie...
