Gillaspie began the year as the White Sox’s starting third baseman, but rookie Tyler Saladino has since taken over at the hot corner. The 28-year-old has not been producing at the plate in 2015. So far this year, he owns a .237/.276/.364 slash line in 185 plate appearances. Last season, Gillaspie hit .282/.336/.416 in 130 games. For his career, Gillaspie owns a .258 .312 .393 slash line in parts of six MLB seasons. Although he has seen the bulk of his major league time with the White Sox, he did make varsity squad cameos with the Giants in 2008, 2011, and 2012.
As MLBTR’s DFA Tracker shows, Gillaspie is currently the only player in DFA limbo.
