White Sox | Conor Gillaspie to compete at 3B

Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura said 3B Conor Gillaspie will compete for a spot at third base this spring with 3B Brent Morel. 3B Jeff Keppinger (shoulder) is the front-runner at the hot corner, but the team may prefer to move him across the infield. Keppinger will sit out the spring opener Saturday, Feb. 23, partly because of soreness in his right shoulder. His arm isn't up to normal strength because he didn't throw much in the offseason after he was recovering from a broken right fibula. Morel looks completely healthy this spring and has impressed Ventura, but Gillaspie could easily break camp with the team as a bench option.
