White Sox trade Conor Gillaspie to Angels

12 Comments

In the market for third base help in the wake of David Freese’s fractured finger, the Angels have acquired Conor Gillaspie from the White Sox in exchange for cash considerations.

Gillaspie was designated for assignment by the White Sox earlier this week after hitting just .237 with a .640 OPS this season, but he batted .282 with a .752 OPS last year and the Angels were basically just looking for someone decent to fill in for 3-4 weeks.

Assuming that Freese returns at some point next month the Angels could shift Gillaspie into a left-handed bench bat role.
