Date:

Blue Jays sent OF Cole Gillespie outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Gillaspie has been sidelined since early July with a strained oblique. The 30-year-old is hitting .243/.300/.311 with a homer and five RBI in 35 games at the big league level this season.
Aug 3 - 7:24 PM

Blue Jays placed OF Cole Gillespie on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 7, with a strained oblique.

The injury comes at a bad time, as the Blue Jays were planning to use Gillespie regularly in the DH spot versus lefties. He figures to be sidelined through the end of July.
Jul 9 - 1:34 AM

Cole Gillespie is not in Tuesday's lineup due to a rib cage issue.

It's poor timing for Gillespie, as the Blue Jays were planning to use him regularly in the DH spot versus lefties. There's no word yet on how long he might be out. Dioner Navarro will be the DH instead Tuesday.
Jul 8 - 8:07 PM

Blue Jays claimed OF Cole Gillespie off waivers from the Mariners.

The 30-year-old outfielder hit .254/.312/.324 with a homer and five RBI in his 71 at-bats with the Mariners. He's expected to function in a reserve outfielder role for the Blue Jays.
Jul 5 - 2:37 PM

Mariners designated OF Cole Gillespie for assignment.

Gillespie has hit .254/.312/.324 with one homer over 78 plate appearances in the majors this season. The 30-year-old hasn't done much in his chances at the big league level but has a nice minor league track record, so it's possible he'll draw interest on waivers.
Jul 4 - 11:51 AM

Mariners purchased the contract of OF Cole Gillespie from Triple-A Tacoma.

Gillespie was off to a scorching start this season at the Triple-A level, hitting .362/.456/.741 with five home runs, 14 RBI, and two stolen bases in 16 games. But the 29-year-old outfielder is not a great fantasy bet.
Apr 24 - 1:43 PM

Mariners reassigned OF Cole Gillespie to minor league camp.

The Mariners now have 39 players in camp. Gillespie batted just .203/.294/.237 in 28 games last season between the Giants and Cubs and stood little chance of claiming an Opening Day roster spot this spring with Seattle.
Mar 18 - 5:18 PM

Mariners signed OF Cole Gillespie to a minor league contract.

The deal figures to include an invitation to spring training. Gillespie played 28 games for the Giants and Cubs last season, batting just .203/.294/.237. He'll function as organizational depth for the Mariners.

Cubs sent OF Cole Gillespie outright to Triple-A Iowa.

He's cleared waivers after being designated for assignment Wednesday. Gillespie has batted 240/.328/.280 over 59 plate appearances in the majors this season.

Cubs designated OF Cole Gillespie for assignment.

Claimed off waivers in July from the Giants, Gillespie slashed .240/.328/.280 over 59 plate appearances. The 29-year-old is likely to pass through waivers and get outrighted to Triple-A Iowa.
Wed, Sep 4, 2013 01:55:00 PM

Cole Gillespie went 3-for-5 with a couple of doubles and an RBI against the Dodgers on Friday.

Gillespie was hoping for a Nate Schierholtz trade to show what he can do. As is, most of his at-bats will come against lefties, so he's probably not going to have any NL-only value. His RBI today was his first since the Cubs picked him up at the All-Star break.
Fri, Aug 2, 2013 08:51:00 PM

Cole Gillespie will join the Cubs' roster on Sunday.

Claimed off waivers on Saturday from the Giants, Gillespie will bolster the depth of a thin Chicago outfield unit. He may even steal sporadic at-bats with David DeJesus sidelined and Nate Schierholtz banged up.
Sat, Jul 13, 2013 04:44:00 PM

Cubs claimed OF Cole Gillespie off waivers from the Giants.

Gillespie was designated for assignment earlier this week and appeared in just three games with the Giants, but batted .277/.361/.455 with nine home runs, 31 RBI, and seven stolen bases at the Triple-A level. With David DeJesus sidelined, Gillespie will provide outfield depth.
Sat, Jul 13, 2013 02:45:00 PM

Giants designated OF Cole Gillespie for assignment.

Gillespie was hitless in nine at-bats during his brief stint with the big club. He's replaced on the roster by Kensuke Tanaka.
