Chicago White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie has spent the last two years as the team's starting third baseman, but this year he'll likely serve in a platoon role with INF Emilio Bonifacio. Gillaspie hit a career-high .282 last season, but he struggled against lefties (.221/.248/.317) compared to .300/.360/.444 against right-handers. Bonifacio is much better from the right side while facing lefties. Gillaspie is willing to fill whatever role the team needs, and he gained roughly 15 pounds in the offseason so he can be more of a power threat.
