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.
