Angels DFA Conor Gillaspie; Kaleb Cowart promoted from Triple-A
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/18/15) The Angels have designated infielder Conor Gillaspie for assignment. Gillaspie was acquired from the White Sox at the end of July, and went 13 for 64 with a home run and nine RBI in 17 games for the Halos.
In a corresponding move, infielder Kaleb Cowart was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake City. Cowart was a first-round pick (18th overall) by the Angels in 2010. He slashed .285/..363/.442 in 113 games in the Angels' farm system this season.
The 23-year-old will be making his Major League debut on Tuesday, as he is in the starting lineup against the White Sox. He will play third base and bat ninth.

|(7/25/15) Third baseman Conor Gillaspie will make his debut with the Angels on Saturday, as he is in the team's lineup for their game against the Rangers.
Gillaspie, who was traded to Los Angeles from the White Sox on Friday, will bat out of the seventh spot in the lineup.
Angels acquire 3B Conor Gillaspie from White Sox
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/24/15) The Angels acquired third baseman Conor Gillaspie from the White Sox for cash considerations on Friday, according to MLB.com.
Gillaspie was designated for assignment by Chicago earlier this week. He will look to fill the void at third base left by the injured David Freese for the Angels.
Gillaspie hit .237 with three home runs and 15 RBI in 173 at-bats.
White Sox designate 3B Conor Gillaspie for assignment Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/19/15) White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie was designated for assignment Sunday in order to clear a spot on the roster for reliever Matt Albers, who was taken off the 15-day disabled list.
Gillaspie was the White Sox's starting third baseman in 2013 and 2014. He opened the year as the team's primary third baseman, but saw his playing time begin to decline in late May and only started once in the last 10 games before Sunday's transaction.
He hit .237 with three home runs and 15 RBI in 58 games.
|2014 summary: In his second year as the White Sox's primary third baseman, Conor Gillaspie gained some notoriety for his hot start. Through June 9, Gillaspie was hitting .353, but because he had yet to hit a homer, he ranked outside the top 25 third basemen in Fantasy value. He hit for some power the rest of the way, launching seven home runs over 88 games, but he limped to the finish line with a .248 batting average over that stretch.|
Playing time status: Gillaspie is no sure thing to play regularly this season, but then again, that was true for the last two seasons, and he wound up being a regular.
2015 outlook: The only thing Gillaspie brought to the table for Fantasy owners last season was his .282 batting average, and a repeat of that mark is highly unlikely. Gillaspie hit .304 on ground balls, and he is pull-heavy and not especially speedy, so that doesn't bode well for a similar average this season. He is strictly an AL-only option, and that's only if he gets regular playing time.
