|Conor Gillaspie leading third-base competition for ChiSox |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/10/14) If the season were to start tomorrow, it appears the White Sox would go with Conor Gillaspie as the starting third baseman over challengers Matt Davidson, Marcus Semien and Jeff Keppinger.
Gillaspie entered play Monday batting .278 (5 for 18) with a .500 slugging percentage, one double, one home run and three RBI in seven games.
"To me, he’s just in a better spot this year confidence-wise, knowledge-wise on what he needs to do to play, offensively, defensively," manager Robin Ventura told reporters in Arizona, per ESPN. "He actually had one game that wasn’t very good, but everybody has those and you have to be able to get over that and still have the confidence, and he’s done that."

(9/16/13) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien, one of the team's September call-ups, was out of the lineup for the first time in six games Monday against the Twins.
Though primarily a shortstop in the minors, he has played mostly third base for the White Sox, also getting a start at second. The 23-year-old is hitting .346 with a double and a steal in 26 at-bats after hitting .284 with 32 doubles, 19 homers, 24 steals and 98 walks in 518 at-bats between Double- and Triple-A.

2014 Draft Prep: Top 50 Fantasy prospects
Which top prospects stand the best chance of helping owners to a Fantasy title in 2014? Our Scott White shares his top 50 for the upcoming season, balancing talent with opportunity.
|Marcus Semien's 2013 numbers probably exaggerate his prospect appeal, but he emerged as a legitimate part of the White Sox's future with the breakthrough performance. And they offered a glimpse of that future down the stretch, shifting him between third base, second base and shortstop while giving him everyday at-bats. Unfortunately, his most trustworthy attribute, his on-base ability, abandoned him in the majors. After having a walk for every strikeout between Double- and Triple-A, his ratio was quite literally 1-to-22 in the majors, which simply won't do. Hopefully, it was just a product of inexperience or small sample size, because Semien's moderate power and speed (think Brian Dozier level) probably won't be enough to carry him. Even with the rocky transition, Semien did show some encouraging signs during his late-season trial. Were they enough to earn him a regular job at one of those positions -- or perhaps a part-time role at all three? In a rebuilding year, possibly. If that's the case, he's well worth drafting in AL-only leagues. Otherwise, you can wait until he does something notable.
