RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Gillaspie spent most of 2012 season in Triple-A where he hit .281/.345/.441 with 14 home runs, and appeared in six games with the Giants in May. He has shown a strong ability to make contact during his minor league career (13.2 percent strikeout rate), but his defense is below average. Additionally, Gillaspie's power does not project well at the position considering his .160 ISO at Triple-A was a career best. There is not a consistent place for him to play in San Francisco, but there might be a spot on the bench for him in 2013.

2012

Gillaspie saw brief action with the Giants in September last year, his first since 2008 (the same year he was drafted). He’s totaled just 24 at-bats in the majors, and his career line of .288/.361/.453 in the minors is OK but certainly doesn’t project for him to be an everyday player in the bigs, although he has improved every year since being drafted. Entering his age-25 season, this will be something of a make-or-break campaign for Gillaspie, who right now doesn’t look like a major league option.

2011

Gillaspie moved to Double-A last year, posting a .287/.335/.420 line over 491 at-bats. While no one expected him to hit many homers at the big league level, Gillaspie's modest average and lack of doubles have been a disappointment, as the former early-round draft pick has failed to impress. He's nowhere near contributing at San Francisco even after showing a little bit of pop in the hitter-friendly Arizona Fall League.

2009

The 37th pick in the 2008 draft made the fastest ascent to the majors in franchise history last year. The promotion was premature, since Gillaspie hit only .269 with zero homers and 15 RBI in 24 games for the Giants' rookie-level and Short-A affiliates. He doesn’t have a ton of power, but he’s a good gap hitter who should fit in well in spacious AT&T Park. He’ll need another year of seasoning in the minors, but Gillaspie is clearly the organization’s future at third base. He should be starting by 2010.
