CHICAGO - Prior to the first game of today's doubleheader vs. Cleveland, the Chicago White Sox reinstated third baseman Conor Gillaspie from the Paternity Leave List.
Gillaspie, 25, was placed on the Paternity Leave List on Wednesday for the birth of his first child. He is batting .246 (48-195) with five home runs and 18 RBI this season, his first with the White Sox after being acquired from San Francisco on February 22.
