Drafted in the 36th round (1089th overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2018 (signed for $2,500)
Gillette was one of NorCal's top prep bats in the 2014 draft, and the Cardinals took a chance on him in the 23rd round. He didn't sign and headed to Oregon State, but he got just 115 at-bats there, including a 2-for-23 showing in 2016, and transferred closer to home at NAIA Menlo (Calif.). He replaced 2016 Brewers second-round pick Lucas Erceg at third base and had some struggles defensively, and he played outfield last summer in the Alaska League, where he hit .277 with power (.445 slugging). He has raw power potential, athleticism and swing-and-miss issues. He struck out 62 times in 200 at-bats and is more raw than the average college junior. He's at least an average runner.
