I don't know if Gillaspie was a busted prospect. He really didn't fit into the Giants' plans going into a season when he was out of options and never got a chance. The infield is set with Sandoval, Crawford and Scuataro, who were are key to the team's success last year either offensively or defensively. He wasn't going to beat out Arias in the bench role he could have with the White Sox after the way Arias contributed last year.

Gillaspie looks like he could be a good contact hitter, something the White Sox don't have enough of, but he hasn't been given much of a chance at the major league level. He is going to have to show something in Arizona to make the White Sox, but it wouldn't surprise me if he plays this season for some other team's AAA affiliate.
