Cole Gillespie went 2-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Gillespie was the only Marlin to notch a multi-hit game on Friday. With the two singles, he's now batting .317/.364/.455 with a homer and nine RBI over 101 at-bats. He's proven to be a productive player when he's in the lineup this season, though he shouldn't be relied on for fantasy purposes.

Cole Gillespie went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Gillespie notched his RBI with a double in the second inning and an infield single in the third. The Marlins failed to crack the scoring column beyond those two hits. Over 84 at-bats this season, the 31-year-old outfielder is hitting .274/.319/.429 with one home run, nine RBI and three steals. He doesn't see enough playing time for fantasy relevance, but the numbers are respectable enough when he's in the lineup.

Marlins purchased the contract of OF Cole Gillespie from Triple-A New Orleans.

The 31-year-old will provide the Marlins with additional depth in the outfield with Giancarlo Stanton on the disabled list. He owns an uninspiring .230/.295/.329 slash line over 243 career at-bats at the big league level.
Jun 27 - 12:30 PM

Marlins sent OF Cole Gillespie outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

Gillespie could have elected free agency but has decided to remain in the organization. He's hit .230/.295/.329 over parts of four seasons in the minors.
Apr 3 - 1:26 PM

Marlins signed OF Cole Gillespie to a minor league contract.

Gillespie had a cup of coffee with the Blue Jays this past season, batting .357/.436/.584 across four minor league levels between the Jays and the Mariners. The former third-round pick has struggled to gain much traction in the majors, but he could get a shot with the Marlins.

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.
Sun, Aug 3, 2014 07:24:00 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.

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.

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.
Sat, Jul 5, 2014 02:37:00 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.
Fri, Jul 4, 2014 11:51:00 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.
Thu, Apr 24, 2014 01:43:00 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.
Tue, Mar 18, 2014 05:18:00 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.
