Unfortunately, everyone saw this coming months ago with the Paulie situation. You're carrying an extra DH right now, so the sacrifice has to be either the 7th bullpen pitcher or a utility middle infielder that could play two or three positions. Gillaspie's not a real backup at SS or 2B; Beckham's not a real backup at SS (which would put Gillaspie at 2B out of position).

The other option would be to let Gillaspie go and bring Davidson and Semien up for Opening Day.
