  • White Sox's Casey Gillaspie: Outrighted from 40-man roster

    Gillaspie was sent off the 40-man roster and outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday.

    Gillaspie is hitting .214/.263/.229 with one extra-base hit and five RBI in 18 games for Charlotte this season. This move further illustrates that Gillaspie is still far away from earning a call up to the major-league level.

  • White Sox's Casey Gillaspie: Returns to Triple-A

    The White Sox optioned Gillaspie to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

    The move isn't surprising as Gillaspie struggled this spring with a .189 batting average and .514 OPS. The 2014 first-round pick will likely need to improve upon his 2017 slash line of .223/.297/.373 at Triple-A if he is to earn a major-league opportunity this season.

  • White Sox's Casey Gillaspie: Added to 40-man roster

    Gillaspie was added to the White Sox's 40-man roster on Monday to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.

    Gillaspie was traded from Tampa Bay in exchange for reliever Dan Jennings this past season. It's hard to envision Gillaspie turning into a useful fantasy piece at this point, as few players hurt their stock more in 2017 than the 24-year-old first baseman. He has plus power, but has not been able to hit for a high average of late. The White Sox will likely be able to find playing time for him at some point in 2017, however, and his power could be of use in really deep leagues.

  • White Sox's Casey Gillaspie: Activated from disabled list

    Gillaspie (toe) was activated from the 7-day DL at Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

    A first-round pick in 2014 (20th overall), Gillaspie saw his stock crash after batting .227/.296/.357 at Triple-A Durham this season as a 24-year-old. He was shipped out by the Rays in exchange for reliever Dan Jennings prior to the trade deadline. Those in dynasty leagues would be wise not to bet on this reclamation project panning out.

  • White Sox's Casey Gillaspie: Headed to White Sox

    The White Sox acquired Gillaspie from the Rays for relief pitcher Dan Jennings, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    As a decently hyped corner-infield prospect, Gillaspie has had a steady climb up the minors in the last four years. He's taken a step back at Triple-A Durham this year, though, compared to 2016. The 24-year-old's .227/.296/.357 line is at least accompanied by nine home runs in 395 plate appearances, so maybe he'll show more thump in time. With Jose Abreu at first base, however, Gillaspie merely profiles as mildly intriguing insurance this year, unless Chicago is going to bring him up to the majors immediately as it tries out its young players. Maybe the switch hitter can snag at-bats as designated hitter in the short term. Either way, this isn't a bad chance for the White Sox to take.

  • White Sox's Casey Gillaspie: To miss 1-2 weeks

    Gillaspie broke a toe during his Tuesday game with Triple-A Durham and will miss 1-to-2 weeks, so he'll start his White Sox career with Triple-A Charlotte, Chuck Garfien of CSN Chicago reports.

    This will delay any shot of him joining the big club in the near future. Gillaspie is batting .227/.296/.357 with nine home runs, 44 RBI and 45 runs scored in 395 plate appearances this season.

  • Rays' Casey Gillaspie: Showing strong plate discipline at Triple-A

    Gillaspie, 24, has slashed .258/.333/.419 across 36 plate appearances with Triple-A Durham this season.

    Gillaspie, a first-round pick in 2014, has shown excellent plate discipline throughout every stop of the minors, but since he can only play first base, the Rays will probably need him to flash more power in the upper minors before giving him his first taste of the big leagues. With the Rays currently deploying a low-ceiling platoon at first base of Logan Morrison and Rickie Weeks, it's not hard to envision Gillaspie eventually finding steady at-bats once he's promoted.

  • Rays' Casey Gillaspie: Reassigned to minor league camp

    Gillaspie was reassigned to minor league camp Thursday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Gillaspie smacked three homers over 40 spring at-bats but hit only .200 and counted two doubles as his only other extra-base hits over that span. The 2014 first-round pick will look to improve on what was an excellent 203-plate appearance stint at Triple-A Durham in 2016 that included a .307/.389/.520 line.

  • Rays' Casey Gillaspie: Third homer of spring Wednesday

    Gillaspie went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 3-3 Grapefruit League tie with the Red Sox.

    The 2014 first-round draft pick blasted his third round-tripper over the last four games when he took reliever Marcus Walden deep in the sixth. Gillaspie has had mixed results at the plate this spring (.241/.290/.552), but the power he's displayed in recent games has certainly been a highlight.

  • Rays' Casey Gillaspie: Smacks pair of homers Sunday

    Gillaspie went 2-for-2 with a pair of homers and three RBI in Sunday's 8-2 Grapefruit League win over the Blue Jays.

    The switch-hitting 24-year-old blasted his first two homers of spring, one from either side of the plate. The first shot, which he hit right-handed, cleared the boardwalk in left-center, while the second, launched from the left side, landed over the right-field fence. Gillaspie, who has been focusing on increasing his power from the right side, is slashing .263/.333/.632 with a double, Sunday's pair of homers, six RBI, two walks and four runs over 19 spring at-bats.

  • Rays' Casey Gillaspie: Draws start at first in Monday win

    Gillaspie, the Rays' 2014 first-round pick, went 1-for-3 with a two-RBI double in Monday's 7-2 Grapefruit League win over the Phillies.

    Gillaspie's line-drive two-bagger to center in the third snapped a 1-1 tie and brought home Dayron Varona and Nick Franklin. The 24-year-old, who's enjoyed a fairly rapid ascension through the Rays organization, slashed an impressive .307/.389/.520 with 13 doubles, two triples, seven homers and 23 RBI over 203 plate appearances at Triple-A Durham in 2016. Gillaspie is currently the organization's seventh-ranked prospect and could certainly lay the groundwork for a call-up later in 2017 with a strong spring and continued improvement at the minor league level.

  • Rays' Casey Gillaspie: Gets promoted to Triple-A ball

    Gillaspie was promoted to Triple-A Durham on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Gillaspie will make his first appearance at Triple-A as he begins a stint with the Durham Bulls. The 23-year-old slashed .270/.387/.454 with 51 runs and 41 RBI over 85 games for Double-A Montgomery this season.

  • Rays' Casey Gillaspie: Holding steady at Double-A

    Gillaspie, 23, is slashing .269/.387/.455 with 11 home runs, 40 RBI and four steals through 83 games at Double-A Montgomery.

    Gillaspie's best asset is his plate discipline, as he has drawn 57 walks thus far in 2016. However, he is also tied for fourth in the Southern League in home runs. The Rays are notoriously cautious with their top prospects, so it is unlikely Gillaspie sees the big leagues before 2017.

  • Rays' Casey Gillaspie: Showing excellent plate discipline

    Gillaspie, 23, is slashing .276/.408/.534 with three home runs and eight RBI through 17 games for Double-A Montgomery.

    Gillaspie has tallied almost as many walks (13) as strikeouts (15). He also hit 17 home runs in 79 games in an injury-shortened 2015 campaign, so he has some pop.
