Triple-A line is .289/.368/.447

LH bat off the bench, depth at 3B. I like it. He's out of options though.

Yeah, as the article said, they'll have to waive him if he doesn't make the big league club.

Hahn seems to like other teams' busted prospects

Josh Bell is a switch hitter with better minor league power then all 3B candidates. Anyone know details on him? Any good defensively?

Now that we have Gilaspie along with Morel I don't think we would be looking for another 3B.

It seems like he'd have to be awful in spring to not break camp with the Sox.

He's already on the team and part of the competition to claim 3B. Just looking at minor league, he looks like he has the most power potential of anyone.

If we are banking on those two we've got problems. The more competition the merrier.

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.

At least we didn't give up much for this failed prospect.
Better than trading Edwin Jackson, Carlos Quentin and Santos for declining prospects.
