The Star Democrat - - SPORTS -

(TNS) — The White Sox made their fourth trade in 15 days Thurs­day when they sent left-handed re­liever Dan Jen­nings to the Rays for mi­nor-league first base­man Casey Gil­laspie.

Gil­laspie, 24, was ranked the 10th-best prospect in the Rays or­ga­ni­za­tion by MLB.com and started the year as Base­ball Amer­ica’s No. 74 over­all prospect. The brother of for­mer Sox third base­man Conor Gil­laspie was a first-round draft pick in 2014.

He was hit­ting .227 with 15 dou­bles, nine home runs, 44 RBIs and 45 runs scored in 95 games this sea­son with Triple-A Durham. He will be placed on the dis­abled list at Triple-A Charlotte with a bro­ken right big toe suf­fered Tues­day when he fouled a ball off the foot and is ex­pected to miss one or two weeks.
