2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Anyone who can hit 25-30 home runs in their prime seasons is worth keeping an eye on in dynasty leagues, and while Gillaspie fits the bill, he has a long way to go. He will be 23 this season but has just 45 plate appearances above Low-A, so it is hard to properly evaluate his performances thus far, as he has been older than most of the pitchers he has faced. Gillaspie cracked an .888 OPS in 64 games at Low-A Bowling Green, earning a promotion to High-A Charlotte and then quickly suffering a wrist injury that kept him out for most of the second half. His upside is probably that of a useful corner infield option in mixed leagues, but that will hinge on his hitting at least .250 or .260, which is not a lock. He will begin his age-23 season back at High-A, but could be pushed aggressively if he handles that assignment.

2015

Gillaspie was taken in the first round of the 2014 draft as a college first baseman, suggesting he has the potential to advance quickly through the minor leagues. While he did not fully showcase his power after getting drafted, his .262/.364/.411 slash line in 308 plate appearances in short season ball suggests his approach is advanced enough to handle more of a challenge in 2015. He has big league bloodlines, as his older brother, Conor, who was a supplemental pick in 2008, has developed into a serviceable major league third baseman. The Rays are unlikely to have anyone blocking Gillaspie at first base in the foreseeable future, so his play will dictate how fast he is pushed through the system. As a big leaguer, his floor is that of a second division starter, with the ceiling to hit .275 with 25 home runs from the left side in his prime.
