Latest Update Conor Gillaspie is not in the White Sox starting lineup on Tuesday. Tue Sep, 02, 05:51 PM
Has a good approach at the plate, the potential to hit for a great batting average and a keen batting eye. Makes contact consistently well.
Flaws: : Needs to make more strides with the glove in order to maximize his major-league potential. Doesn't have huge power potential.
Didn't realize Gillaspie being out of the lineup is actual news because he's not thing good and doesn't play everyday.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
The only thing better than Gillaspie hitting a grand slam is if you were actually using him for your starting lineup when it happened. He's hitting for a solid .311 average, but his lack of power tends to leave fantasy owners lukewarm on using him as their corner infielder or third baseman. He's more of an AL-only or deep mixed league choice and even then, you still might be thinking in another direction due to the lack of overall production. He's probably best as a plug-and -play option should you just be looking to supplement the batting average but even then, that's a stretch. Analyst: Howard Bender
After going homerless through his first 59 games of the season, Gillapsie has found his power stroke, having gone yard four times over his last eight games, including in each of his last three contests. Like most visitors to Fenway Park, Gillaspie had himself a great stretch of games, going 6-for-9 with three home runs, two doubles and five RBI in three games. However, it is unlikely his recent power surge will be long-lasting, although his ..323 batting average is a nice constellation prize. Analyst: Matthew Beck
With lefty Jon Lester on the mound for Boston, the White Sox are stacking as many right-handed bats as they can. Switch-hitting Leury Garcia will start at third in place of Gillaspie on Thursday.Analyst: Howard Bender
