Conor Gillaspie homered Wednesday in the Giants' Cactus League opener against the Angels.

It was a third-inning solo shot off Angels right-hander Matt Shoemaker. Gillaspie signed a minor league contract with the Giants in early February and is trying to earn a spot on the San Francisco bench this spring. He got off to a nice start on Wednesday.
Mar 2 - 5:56 PM

Giants signed INF Conor Gillaspie to a minor league contract.

The deal will presumably include an invitation to major league spring training as well. The 28-year-old had a rough go of things in 2015, slashing .228/.269/.359 with four homers and 24 RBI in 75 games between the White Sox and Angels. He'll compete for a bench spot with the Giants.
Feb 5 - 10:21 PM

Angels sent INF Conor Gillaspie outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Gillaspie cleared waivers after being designated for assignment. He's hit just .228/.269/.359 for the White Sox and Angels this season.

Angels designated INF Conor Gillaspie for assignment.

Gillaspie hit just .203/.250/.344 in 68 plate appearances with Anaheim. He opened the 2015 season as the White Sox's starting third baseman, but the 28-year-old is now a nomad. Kaleb Cowart was called up by the Angels in a corresponding roster move.

Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in a loss to the Astros on Tuesday.

Gillaspie had an RBI double in the first inning before adding an RBI single an inning later. He's enjoyed his new digs through three games, going 5-for-12 with two doubles, three RBI and three runs scored as a member of the Angels. Gillaspie is hitting .249/.288/.378 on the year after being designated for assignment by the White Sox earlier in July.

Angels acquired 3B Conor Gillaspie from the White Sox in exchange for cash considerations.

Gillaspie had been designated for assignment last weekend after hitting just .237/.276/.364 this season. Although he's been a disappointment in 2015, Gillaspie isn't a bad option to fill in for the injured David Freese (finger) for the next few weeks at third base.

White Sox designated 3B Conor Gillaspie for assignment.

Gillaspie has had an awful season, batting just .237/.276/.364, and has been on the bench mostly of late with the White Sox going with Tyler Saladino and Gordon Beckham at third base. It's possible he'll draw some interest on waivers from a team in need of corner infield help, but Gillaspie really isn't starting material.
Sun, Jul 19, 2015 10:59:00 AM

Conor Gillaspie is not in the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

Tyler Saladino is once again getting a start at the hot corner and will bat second against Jeremy Guthrie and the Royals. Gillaspie has been a major disappointment this season, slashing just .237/.276/.364 with three homers and 15 RBI in 58 contests.
Sat, Jul 18, 2015 12:31:00 PM

Conor Gillaspie (foot) will start the second half of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

Gillaspie was held out of action Monday-Wednesday in Toronto for fear that the Rogers Centre turf would aggravate his lingering plantar fasciitis. Gordon Beckham is at third base for the White Sox in the first game Thursday at Camden Yards, but Gillaspie will man the hot corner in the nightcap.
Thu, May 28, 2015 11:33:00 AM

Conor Gillaspie is expected back in the White Sox' lineup Thursday.

Gillaspie didn't start any of the team's games in Toronto for fear of the turf's effect on his plantar fasciitis. There doesn't appear to be any recurrence, though, so he should be fine moving forward.
Wed, May 27, 2015 07:19:00 PM

Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-4 with a homer against the Indians on Wednesday.

Home run power isn't a part of Gillaspie's game -- he has two this year after hitting seven last season -- but he's gotten the bat going these last couple of weeks. He's at .341 in 41 at-bats in May after hitting .196 in 51 at-bats in April.
Wed, May 20, 2015 11:43:00 PM

Conor Gillaspie sat out on Thursday and Friday due to plantar fasciitis.

It has been an ongoing issue for Gillaspie throughout the young season, and White Sox manager Robin Ventura will continue to rest him on occasion to keep him fresh. He's hitting .242/.288/.419 with one homer and seven RBI in 20 games on the season.
Fri, May 8, 2015 09:07:00 PM

Conor Gillaspie is not in the White Sox starting lineup Thursday afternoon versus the Tigers.

It's just a day of maintenance for Gillaspie, who's batting .242/.288/.419 with one home run and seven RBI in 20 games played this year. Gordon Beckham is starting at third base in Thursday's matinee with Detroit.
Thu, May 7, 2015 11:02:00 AM

Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-3 with a two-run triple in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Gillaspie's triple was his first of the season after hitting five last year. Multi-hits have been hard to come by for Gillaspie this year, as Tuesday's was just his second overall and his first since April 11. His struggles have led to a .237/.274/.373 line thus far.
