White Sox trade Jennings to Rays
(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.
