Gillaspie was rushed ridiculously by the Giants. He played something like 24 minor league games before his first call up. He's bounced up and down the minors since while getting almost no playing time (like 270 plate appearances). Yeah, he's hit well in the minors, but that's not really a AAAA player, that's a guy that hasn't really been given a fair shake. Dude's a former first round pick to boot. Let's give him a shot. This could be one of those key moves that changes everything.
