Giants general manager Bobby Evans on Thursday would not commit to tendering Conor Gillaspie a contract this offseason.
Gillaspie is due a raise via arbitration this winter, with projecting him to earn a very reasonable $900,000. On the surface it would seem like giving the postseason hero that much would be a no-brainer, but the reality is that Gillaspie hit a pedestrian .262/.307/.440 in 2016, which falls right in line with his career .256/.309/.397 line. However, it would ultimately be hard to see the Giants letting Gillaspie walk away when they can keep him cheaply, even if they do have Eduardo Nunez pegged as their everyday third baseman in 2017.

Conor Gillaspie finished 4-for-4 in the Giants' NLDS Game 4 loss to the Cubs.

Gillaspie singled in the second, fourth, fifth, and eighth, driving in a run and scoring one of his own, but the San Francisco bullpen blew a three-run lead in the top of the ninth as the Giants were eliminated from the 2016 postseason. Gillaspie batted .421 with a 1.105 OPS in 19 at-bats between the Wild Card Game and Tuesday night's NLDS Game 4 defeat, possibly positioning himself for a slightly better payout in his first offseason of arbitration eligibility.

Conor Gillaspie socked a go-ahead, two-run triple off of Aroldis Chapman in the eighth inning of the Giants' extra-innings win over the Cubs.

Gillaspie somehow managed to get on top of a 101 mph fastball from Chapman and drove it into the right-center field gap at AT&T Park to push the Giants ahead. Sergio Romo then proceeded to blow a save in the ninth with a leadoff walk and then game-tying homer off of Kris Bryant. Joe Panik eventually saved the day with his RBI double in the bottom of the 13th. Gillaspie has now delivered each of the biggest two hits for the Giants this postseason.

Conor Gillaspie is starting at third base and batting eighth for the Giants in Monday's NLDS Game 3 versus the Cubs.

Eduardo Nunez has appeared as a pinch-hitter in the first two games as he comes back from a hamstring injury, but Gillaspie will continue to start at third base. The Giants' full lineup looks like this: Denard Span CF, Brandon Belt 1B, Buster Posey C, Hunter Pence RF, Brandon Crawford SS, Angel Pagan LF, Joe Panik 2B, Gillaspie 3B, Madison Bumgarner P.
Oct 10 - 5:08 PM

Conor Gillaspie snapped a scoreless tie with a three-run home run in the ninth inning of Wednesday's 3-0 Wild Card Game win over the Mets.

In what was as much of a pitching clinic as there has been in the majors in 2016, Gillaspie's home run struck like a bolt of lightning. He hit it off of Mets closer Jeurys Familia with one out in the ninth inning to jump the Giants to a 3-0 lead. The dinger is made all the more remarkable for the fact that Gillaspie only had the opportunity due to the fact that Eduardo Nunez is dealing with a hamstring injury. The Giants now advance to the NLDS, where they will face off with Jon Lester and the Cubs in Game 1 on Friday.
Oct 5 - 11:39 PM

Conor Gillaspie will start at third base in Wednesday's NL Wild Card game against the Mets.

Gillaspie will fill in for Eduardo Nunez, who was left off the Wild Card roster due to a lingering hamstring injury. Gillaspie batted .262 with six homers and a .747 OPS over 205 plate appearances during the regular season. The full lineup against Noah Syndergaard: Denard Span CF, Brandon Belt 1B, Buster Posey C, Hunter Pence RF, Brandon Crawford SS, Angel Pagan LF, Joe Panik 2B, Gillaspie 3B, Madison Bumgarner SP.
Oct 5 - 3:34 PM

Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

The Giants could only find five hits as a team against a locked in Tanner Roark. Gillaspie had himself two of those. He also picked up an RBI on a second-inning ground out. That makes three consecutive games in which he has driven in a run. Despite his recent quiet success, there is no true fantasy intrigue here. Gillaspie has just four home runs and 17 RBI for the season as a whole.
Jul 29 - 1:57 AM

Conor Gillaspie went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

Gillaspie connected for a solo home run off Dan Straily in the third inning. That would stand as the Giants' only run of the contest. It was Gillaspie's fourth dinger of the 2016 campaign. In addition to that quartet of taters, the 29-year-old third baseman is slashing .250/.298/.405 and has driven in 16 runs in 116 at-bats. He holds no fantasy value.
Jul 27 - 7:17 PM

Conor Gillaspie blasted a three-run home run on Sunday, but it wasn't enough for the Giants to overcome the Padres.

Gillaspie's three-run shot in the seventh inning was the Giants first hit against Edwin Jackson, and pulled the Padres to within a run at 4-3, but that would be as close as they would come. He has done a decent job filling in for Matt Duffy, slashing .260/.311/.417 with three homers and 14 RBI.
Jul 17 - 11:04 PM

Conor Gillaspie went 3-for-4 with a triple and a double in leading the Giants to a 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

With a .783 OPS in 80 at-bats, Gillaspie has done a really nice job while filling in for Matt Duffy at third base. He shouldn't have much of a role when Duffy returns, however.
Jul 2 - 12:43 AM

Conor Gillaspie hit a walkoff RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Giants beat the Phillies 8-7 on Sunday afternoon in San Francisco.

Gillaspie drove in Ramiro Pena, who had slapped a one-out double a couple pitches before. Gillaspie also had a single and he got hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the third, finishing the day 2-for-4 with two big RBI. He will continue to get regular playing time while Matt Duffy recovers from an Achilles strain and is worth consideration in NL-only fantasy formats.
Jun 26 - 7:51 PM

Conor Gillaspie went 4-for-5 with a homer and four RBI as the Giants throttled the Pirates 15-4 in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

Gillaspie connected on a two-run homer off Pirates starter Wilfredo Boscan, capping off a seven-run rally in the fourth inning. He added on RBI singles in the fifth and eighth innings. The veteran infielder has struggled in his limited action with the Giants, slashing .224/.296/.388 with two homers and seven RBI.
Jun 22 - 12:06 AM

Giants purchased the contract of INF Conor Gillaspie from Triple-A Sacramento.

He's now made it back to the majors with the club that originally drafted him. Gillaspie will back up at the corner infield spots
Apr 22 - 2:11 PM

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.
