Profile: Profile:  Gillaspie came through big for the Giants in the Wild Card game with a game-winning home run. Still, Gillaspie projects to be a bench player for the Giants with Eduardo Nuñez slated to start at third. Gillapsie posted a career-best isolated power, yet his .178 ISO is nothing to get very excited about as he totaled 18 extra-base hits in 205 plate appearances. That number was driven by 4 triples, which is not a career-best in volume, but his triple rate is the best he’s had in his career. Gillaspie has seen his walk percentage drop the past two seasons as he has not been above 6% during that time despite posting a career mark of 7%. In 2015, it appeared his plate approach was trending in the wrong direction as his strikeout percentage jumped up to 19%. In 2016, he improved his K% to 14% (a career-best), which is once again encouraging and still not enough to expect a breakout. There were improvements in his game last season, but it’s hard to say that these will sustain based on 205 PA and it’s doubtful he will see much more than that this season in order to make him somebody looked at beyond your deepest fantasy leagues. (Paul Kastava)

The Quick Opinion: Gillaspie saw a boost in his power and a drop in his strikeout rate in a small sample. Playing time will be tough to come by in order to see if these gains are legitimate and would make a potential impact in even deeper fantasy leagues.
