Date:

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.

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.
May 20 - 11:43 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.
May 8 - 9:07 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.
May 7 - 11:02 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.
May 5 - 11:24 PM

Conor Gillaspie went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Thursday, dropping his average to .195.

Gillaspie was a nice platoon player for the White Sox last season, but he's yet to get it going this year, with just two RBI and two walks to go along with his subpar average. Maybe it has something to do with the plantar fasciitis he was diagnosed with this spring. If he continues to slump, the White Sox could give more time at third base to Gordon Beckham.
Apr 24 - 12:41 AM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura admitted Tuesday that Conor Gillaspie has been battling plantar fascitis throughout spring training.

The issue could be partially to blame for Gillaspie's struggles in Cactus League play, as he's hitting just .242/.265/.303 with no homers and two RBI. While the issue hasn't been serious enough to cause him to miss time, it is making his regular baseball activities much more painful.

Conor Gillaspie bulked up over the offseason and quit chewing tobacco in an effort to get stronger and help get through the grind of the long season.

Gillaspie added 15-20 pounds of muscle to prevent the late-season swoon that he endured in 2014, where he slashed just .208/.259/.333 with three homers over his final 47 contests. He's expected to bat sixth in a much-improved White Sox lineup, which should provide plenty of RBI chances.

Conor Gillaspie had a forgettable night at the plate in a win over the Rays on Friday, going hitless in five at-bats and leaving seven men stranded.

Hitting in the cleanup spot in manager Robin Ventura's lineup, he needs to do a much better job capitalizing in run-producing situations. He's enjoying a nice season overall though, hitting .287/.339/.424 with seven homers and 57 RBI.

Conor Gillaspie hit a three-run triple in the seventh inning, and the White Sox held on to beat the Royals 7-5 on Tuesday.

With one out and runners on the corners, the Royals opted to walk Jose Abreu to bring up Gillaspie. The 27-year-old made them pay for that decision, ripping a triple into the gap to clear the bases and give the White Sox the lead. The triple was surprisingly his fifth of the season, giving him 57 RBI. Gillaspie finished 2-for-5 in the game to raise his season line to a strong .293/.345/.433.

Conor Gillaspie went hitless in Friday's loss to the Tigers, finishing 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout.

Gillaspie has swung a productive bat for the White Sox this season, slashing .302/.355/.444 with six homers and 48 RBI in 394 at-bats. There have been talks of utilizing him more in the outfield in an effort to keep his bat in the lineup on an everyday basis.

The White Sox are considering giving Conor Gillaspie some playing time in the outfield.

The idea is geared more towards next season as the Sox try to find out how versatile Gillaspie can be. The 27-year-old sports a nice .309/.360/.451 batting line as the club's starting third baseman next season, but the Pale Hose would be better off in the long haul if they're not counting on Gillaspie to be more than a backup. "I will,’’ Gillaspie said when asked about if he'd be willing to play the outfield. "I’m sure I could get the hang of it. If not this year, then for sure in the spring. Whatever it is they want me to do. If it means I can stay here and play, I’ll do whatever they ask.’’

Conor Gillaspie walked and hit a grand slam in four trips to the plate as the White Sox held on to defeat the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Gillaspie smoked a grand slam off of Drew Hutchison in the first inning, providing the first four runs in what turned out to be a six-run frame. Gillaspie has been a good find for the White Sox, as he has five home runs, 46 RBI, and an impressive .311/.363/.456 slash line on the season.

Conor Gillaspie singled three times in five at-bats, scoring once and driving in a run, as the White Sox enjoyed an easy 11-4 victory over the Tigers on Tuesday.

It's Gillaspie's fourth multi-hit game in his last five games. The third baseman has done nothing but hit all season, enjoying a .327/.379/.467 slash line with four home runs and 38 RBI.
