White Sox infielder Conor Gillaspie starting to find a rhythm


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) White Sox infielder Conor Gillaspie is swinging a hot bat as of late. Gillaspie is hitting .429 in his last three games with a triple and a home run. Gillaspie has found a groove despite an off schedule with four off days built into the schedule.

"We haven't really played consistent games, it seems like, so I can't really answer that truthfully," Gillaspie said. "The more you play, traditionally, the better you feel as a player.

"It's been kind of a weird spring, as far as we've had so many rainouts and days off and practice days. It's just been kind of crazy so far. I don't think it's fair to make an assessment quite yet."

Gillaspie noted he's been pulling the ball more this year than in the past.

"Obviously, this spring and the first part of the season I've pulled more balls than I traditionally do," Gillaspie said. "But part of that is getting timing down. Part of it is getting more experience and at-bats. The further we go along, the better off I'll be at hitting balls to all fields like I've done in the past -- or at least tried to do.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie says plantar fasciitis is not an issue


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) After initially being bothered by plantar fasciitis at the beginning of spring training, White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie said he is over the injury, reports MLB.com.

"It's fine," Gillaspie said. "First thing [in the morning] and last thing at night, it's kind of sore, but as far as affecting me playing, it doesn't. It did a little bit when I first got here, but it has gone away. Credit to [White Sox head athletic trainer] Herm [Schneider] for working hard with me every day on that."

While Gillaspie will likely be dealing with discomfort in his foot for most of the season, he said it's nothing he can't manage.

"The workload lessens as you get into the season as far as practice hours go. Obviously, I'm hoping that calms it down a bit, having a little less to do," Gillaspie said. "It's not a big issue."


White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie battling plantar fasciitis


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) White Sox starting third baseman Conor Gillaspie has played through plantar fasciitis for the better part of spring training, manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday per ESPN.com.

Gillaspie has not missed a day of action with the injury, although he was given the day off Tuesday after participating in workouts in the morning. He was first noticeably dealing with the issue March 3, when he was gingerly rounding bases.

"Conor has had some foot issues early in camp where I don't think he's where he's going to be (later in the season)," Ventura said. "It's going to improve. He looks better with his glove work but his range, with plantar fasciitis early, he's getting over it. Once he gets over that he'll have better range."

Gillaspie declined to say if he was dealing with any discomfort.


White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie bulks up


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/25/2015) White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie says his offseason weight training program has enabled him to add 15-20 pounds of muscle, "which should translate into driving the ball harder," reports ESPN.com.

“Honestly I’m hoping that by taking the same swing that I did last year, because I’m stronger, I’m hoping that translates into more power,” Gillaspie said, per the website. “It may or may not. We have enough guys that do hit for power on this team now. There are quite a few of them, so truthfully, I think I might be just as valuable getting on base, drawing walks, moving runners.” 

Gillaspie hit .282 with seven homers and 57 RBI in 130 games last year.

Hitters to start in Week 17


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/20/2014) Looking for a sleeper for Fantasy Week 17 (July 21-27)? You might want to give a second look to Kurt Suzuki, Mark Teixeira, Scooter Gennett, Conor Gillaspie, Jed Lowrie and Corey Dickerson.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Conor Gillaspie making up for lost homers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) If you're one of the many who need help at third base and typically go for hot hand on the waiver wire, you've probably gravitated toward Conor Gillaspie over the last couple weeks. He's been the highest-scoring third baseman in July, piling up 55 Head-to-Head points.

Of course, he's already hit four home runs this month, which you could say is out of character for him. They're the only four he's hit all season.

So while on the one hand, his performance this month is too good to be true (which could probably go without saying), on the other hand, he's still behind pace after hitting 13 home runs as a rookie last year. That's not to say anyone was counting on him to hit 25 homers or anything, but between the majors and minors, he has demonstrated he can hit 12-15 when given the at-bats.

More than anything, this power surge has highlighted how good he's been otherwise, hitting .326 for the season. And while his .370 BABIP is reason for skepticism, his low strikeout rate, which would rank 42nd among hitters if he had the at-bats to quality, and high line drive rate, which would rank 12th, suggest he should continue to help in batting average.

Part of the reason he doesn't qualify, though, is because the White Sox don't care to play him every day, which certainly hurts his Head-to-Head value, but he is sort of a poor man's Lonnie Chisenhall if you play in the sort of league where dropping Chisenhall would be something akin to lunacy. 


Conor Gillaspie misses out on a cycle Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie missed out on a cycle Tuesday against the Red Sox. 

Gillaspie was locked in to begin the game. He singled in his first at-bat, and then followed that up with a double his second time up. In his third at-bat, Gillaspie unleashed a two run homer to right field. Gillaspie had one chance at a triple, but wound up striking out his last time up. 

He's hitting .317/.367/.449 over 243 at-bats.
