Giants sent INF Conor Gillaspie outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Gillaspie cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. Refusing an outright assignment would've meant forfeiting what remains of his $1.4 million salary this season, so it's no surprise he's chosen to stick around.

Giants designated INF Conor Gillaspie for assignment.

Gillaspie had posted an awful .163/.218/.288 batting line in 44 games this season for San Francisco and is now off the 40-man roster. Ryder Jones appears poised to take over as the Giants' everyday third baseman, though Pablo Sandoval could see some action down the stretch as well. Christian Arroyo is likely done for the season with a fractured left hand.

Conor Gillaspie belted a go-ahead solo homer in the eighth inning on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Giants to victory over the Dodgers.

As a pinch-hitter, Gillaspie broke a scoreless tie when he lined a Josh Fields offering over the wall in right field. He finished the night 1-for-2 and is now hitting .171/.229/.303 with two homers and eight RBI on the season.

Giants activated INF Conor Gillaspie from the 10-day disabled list.

Gillaspie returned to the disabled list last week due to a recurring back issue, but he came out of a brief minor league rehab assignment without incident. The 29-year-old has been limited to 28 games with the Giants this season while batting just .137/.224/.176 in 58 plate appearances.

Giants placed 3B Conor Gillaspie on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 26, with back spasms.

Gillaspie just returned last week from a six-week absence with back issues, but obviously he's still not healthy. It's unclear how long he'll be out this time around.

Conor Gillaspie (back) will be placed on the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game.

Gillaspie just returned last week from a six-week absence with a back issue and he's apparently still not 100 percent. Jae-gyun Hwang will replace him on the roster.

Giants activated INF Conor Gillaspie from the 10-day disabled list.

Gillaspie is starting at the hot corner and batting second for the Giants on Friday. Before landing on the DL with back spasms, he was hitting just .133/.216/.156 in his first 45 at-bats.
Fri, Jun 23, 2017 08:40:00 PM

Conor Gillaspie (back) underwent an MRI on Saturday after suffering a setback during his minor league rehab assignment.

Gillaspie hasn't played since aggravating his back injury Tuesday in a rehab game for Triple-A Sacramento. His MRI results will determine the next step in his recovery process. Gillespie was only hitting .133 when he landed on the DL with back spasms earlier this month.
Sat, May 27, 2017 07:53:00 PM

Conor Gillaspie (back) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Fresno on Friday.

Gillaspie is no longer experiencing back spasms and could be ready to return from the 10-day disabled list when first eligible early next week, though he doesn't have a clear path to playing time in San Francisco with top prospect Christian Arroyo now manning third base.
Tue, May 16, 2017 08:03:00 PM

Giants placed 3B Conor Gillaspie on the 10-day disabled list with back spasms.

Gillaspie has played sparingly since Christian Arroyo's call-up last month and has only hit .133 in his 45 at-bats this year. Arroyo will continue to hold down the hot corner with Eduardo Nunez mostly playing left field.
Thu, May 11, 2017 08:31:00 PM

Conor Gillaspie finished 2-for-3 with a double, walk and two runs scored in Saturday's loss against the Padres.

Gillaspie accounted for the team's only extra-base hit in a lopsided loss at home. The former Wichita State standout is showing some signs of life at the plate after a terrible start. He remains useful only in the deepest of NL-only fantasy formats until this type of production becomes the norm.

Conor Gillaspie (arm) is on the lineup sheet for Wednesday's exhibition game against Puerto Rico.

Gillaspie was scratched from Saturday's Cactus League game due to soreness in his arm, but this suggests that he's over the issue. The 29-year-old is in the mix for a bench spot this spring.

Conor Gillaspie was scratched from Saturday's Cactus League game due to soreness in his arm.

The injury sounds minor and Gillaspie is listed as day-to-day. The 29-year-old slashed .262/.307/.440 with six homers and 25 RBI in 191 at-bats for the Giants in 2016. He's facing considerable competition for a bench spot on the Opening Day roster.
Sat, Mar 4, 2017 03:08:00 PM

Giants and 3B Conor Gillaspie avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.4 million contract.

Gillaspie saw the field in 101 games this past season, slashing .262/.307/.440 with six homers and 25 RBI during the regular season. He proceeded to play brilliantly in the postseason, posting a .421 batting average and 1.105 OPS in 19 Wild Card Game and NLDS at-bats. The 29-year-old third baseman has not seen more than 240 at-bats since the 2014 campaign and figures to play in a part-time role once again in 2017. Eduardo Nunez is expected to serve as the Giants' starting third baseman this coming season.
