Conor Gillaspie had another nice game Wednesday against the Red Sox, delivering his third homer and his 21st double of the season.
It's bizarre how Gillaspie has gone from hitting third at the beginning of the year, when he seemed like a pretty lousy bet, to sixth now, even though he's batting .320. He didn't have a homer until July, but now he has three in seven games. Maybe it'll get him moved back up in the order. Jul 9 - 10:18 PM

Conor Gillaspie singled, doubled, and belted a two-run home run as the White Sox defeated the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Gillaspie missed Monday's game with a sore knee, but returned with a vengeance on Tuesday. The 26-year-old doubled and scored in the fourth, then went yard for a two-run home run in the sixth inning, breaking a 3-3 tie. Gillaspie has been a nice surprise for the White Sox, as he is slashing .317/.367/.449 with two home runs and 32 RBI.
Jul 8 - 10:30 PM

Conor Gillaspie (knee) is hoping to return to the lineup Tuesday.

Gillaspie isn't playing Monday after exiting Sunday's contest when he was hit on the right knee by a pitch. X-rays came back negative, but he remains sore. "It's not pleasant," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Monday. "Hopefully, by tomorrow he should be fine. By the miracle of [White Sox head athletic trainer] Herm [Schneider], he might be able to pinch-hit tonight. He probably could. I don't know if he'd stay in there, but he might be able to pinch-hit."
Jul 7 - 8:42 PM

Conor Gillaspie was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Mariners with a bruised right knee.

Gillaspie was drilled by a pitch and appeared to be in obvious pain as he was helped off the field. While he should avoid the DL, it wouldn't be surprising to see him rest a game or two before returning.
Jul 6 - 4:02 PM

Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-3 with his first home run of the season in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Angels.

Gillaspie hit the two-run shot off Jered Weaver in the second inning, and he later added an RBI single and a run scored as well. For as good as Gillaspie has been this year -- he's batting .317/.360/.432 in 60 games -- the lack of power has made him difficult to start in most standard mixed leagues. Perhaps now that he's got one under his belt the next one will come in fewer than 227 at-bats.
Jul 2 - 12:21 AM

Conor Gillaspie is not in the White Sox starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.

After a rough night at the dish on Friday, Gillaspie will take a seat against opposing southpaw Danny Duffy. Leury Garcia will draw the start at third base in his place and bat ninth for the White Sox.
Jun 14 - 11:05 AM

Conor Gillaspie had a night to forget in Friday's loss to the Royals, going 0-for-4 and leaving seven men stranded on base.

He came to the plate with two men on and no outs in the first inning and couldn't get anything done, then flew out to center field with the bases loaded his next time up and the White Sox trailing 6-2. Everyone is allowed to have an off night and even with the hitless effort, Gillaspie is slashing a tremendous .331/.380/.434 on the season.
Jun 13 - 11:51 PM

Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored Friday in a loss to the Padres.

He's not slowing down. Gillaspie has hit safely in six straight games and now owns a surprising .356/.397/.470 batting line through 35 games. His .400-plus BABIP has certainly helped matters, but the 26-year-old has been an excellent find for the White Sox.
May 30 - 11:35 PM

Conor Gillaspie stayed hot Monday against the Indians, as he went 4-for-4 with three doubles, an RBI, and two runs scored.

The four hits were a career-high. Gillaspie has hit safely in 11 out of his last 12 games and is now hitting .352 through 32 games. The 26-year-old has yet to hit a homer this season, but he's worth a look in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
May 26 - 5:41 PM

Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Gillaspie broke through for what was the White Sox' only run of the game against Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka, bringing in a run with a single in the sixth inning. He continues to be a pleasant surprise at the dish, hitting .331/.369/.424 in 31 games. His ability to hit for average alone makes him rosterable in deep mixed leagues right now.
May 25 - 7:04 PM

Conor Gillaspie went 3-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored to help the White Sox hold off the Royals 7-6 on Tuesday.

Gillaspie has been on fire at the dish since being activated from the disabled list, going 16-for-38 (.421) with six runs scored in those 11 games. His seven-game hitting streak has his season line up to .347/.389/.455. It's hard to get too excited about a guy with a career .257/.315/.388 line, but fantasy owners could do worse than the 26-year-old when he's tearing it up like this.
May 21 - 1:14 AM

White Sox activated 3B Conor Gillaspie from the 15-day disabled list.

Gillaspie was cleared to return after getting through three rehab games with no issues. Marcus Semien is sticking around, so Gillaspie figures to cede all starts versus lefties and some versus righties to Semien.
May 7 - 3:53 PM

Conor Gillaspie (hand) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte Sunday.

Gillaspie is expected to play three games for Charlotte before being activated if all goes well. The 26-year-old faces an uncertain playing time situation once he returns, as the White Sox have three players (Gillaspie, Marcus Semien and Gordon Beckham) for two spots (second and third base).
May 4 - 9:02 AM

Conor Gillaspie (hand) is feeling much better and is expected back from the disabled list next week.

Gillaspie missed nearly a week of action with a sore left hand before finally being placed on the DL on Monday. However, it sounds like he'll be back on May 7, the first day he's eligible. White Sox manager Robin Ventura will have some lineup decisions to make when Gillaspie returns, as he's committed to Gordon Beckham but Gillaspie and Marcus Semien have both played well.
Apr 30 - 11:28 AM

White Sox placed 3B Conor Gillaspie on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 22, due to soreness in his left hand.

Gillaspie hasn't played since Monday due to the injury. With Gordon Beckham back and able to man second base, Marcus Semien will continue to cover third base in Gillaspie's absence.
