Gillaspie, to me, just there for options, possibly trade options.
I don't know how Gillaspie hits lefties, but if he is anywhere near passable he'd be an upgrade over Dunn. Many left handed spray/slap hitters actually hit lefties better, Ichiro and Juan Pierre for example. Could DH Konerko vs. lefties, move Keppinger to first and Gillaspie at third
