  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Struggles with command Friday

    Giolito allowed four runs on three hits and five walks while striking out four in 4.1 innings during Friday's loss to the Astros in Game 2 of the ALDS. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Giolito finished the regular season on a high note with a 1.10 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in 16.1 innings across his final three regular-season starts. However, he was unable to replicate that success Friday, as he threw just 52 of his 90 pitches for strikes. The right-hander's five walks matched his highest total of the season, and his next appearance depends on whether the White Sox can win three consecutive games to advance to the ALCS.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Starting Game 2

    Giolito will start Game 2 of the ALDS against the Astros on Friday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

    Giolito lasted at least five innings in each of his final three starts of the regular season, and he recorded a 1.10 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in 16.1 innings during that time. The right-hander will be on full rest in Friday's postseason start.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Settles for no-decision

    Giolito didn't factor in the decision against Detroit on Saturday, pitching five innings and allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out three.

    Giolito was effective in his final start of the regular season, as the Tigers were held to a lone run and didn't produce any extra-base hits against the hurler. He was outdueled by Detroit starter Matt Manning, who pitched five scoreless frames and also gave up only a pair of hits, though a late-game comeback by Chicago resulted in both pitchers notching a no-decision. Giolito finishes the regular season with a 3.53 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 201 strikeouts across 178.2 innings. His next outing will likely come in the ALDS.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Fires six shutout innings

    Giolito (11-9) allowed five hits and a walk over six scoreless frames Sunday, striking out six and earning a win over Cleveland.

    Giolito threw 62 of 100 pitches for strikes and never faced a serious threat in his second straight win, allowing just one extra-base hit. The 27-year-old righty is 3-1 over his last eight outings with a 2.42 ERA. Sunday marked his first time completing at least six innings since Aug. 25 and he lowered his season ERA to 3.58 through 173.2 frames. Giolito is lined up to face Detroit at home next weekend, although the White Sox could always reshuffle their rotation ahead of the postseason.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Earns 10th win

    Giolito (10-9) allowed one earned run on six hits and one walk while striking out four across 5.1 innings, earning the win over the Rangers on Sunday.

    Giolito allowed three hits in the fifth inning, leading to the only run he allowed. His four punchouts were his lowest in his last seven starts. The 26-year-old has a 3.70 ERA and 1.12 WHIP with a 10.3 K/9 in 167.2 innings this season. His next start is scheduled for Friday in Cleveland.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Whiffs eight in no-decision

    Giolito tossed four innings against the Angels on Tuesday, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out eight. He did not factor in the decision.

    A pair of Angels long balls were responsible for all three runs Giolito surrendered, though he allowed only one additional hit outside of the homers. The right-hander flashed his dominant arsenal by inducing 18 swinging strikes and racking up eight punchouts in only four frames; however, the White Sox elected to pull him after 87 pitches, likely in deference to the fact that he hadn't pitched in two weeks due to a hamstring injury. Giolito is tentatively scheduled to make his next start at Detroit on Monday.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Activated ahead of start

    Giolito (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Angels.

    Giolito's hamstring strain wound up costing him two turns in the rotation. His final start of August, in which he suffered the injury, wasn't his best, as he walked four batters in 4.1 innings of work while allowing a pair of runs, but that followed a four-start stretch in which he cruised to a 2.16 ERA and 0.80 WHIP.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Could return Tuesday

    Manager Tony La Russa is hopeful that Giolito (hamstring) will be able to start Tuesday's series opener against the Angels, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

    The White Sox have several starting pitchers on the brink of rejoining the starting rotation, and Giolito is in contention to return after a fairly minimal stay on the 10-day IL. The right-hander threw at max effort Tuesday and is expected to throw a bullpen session in the coming days, and he should return to game action next week if his upcoming throwing sessions go well.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Throws at max effort

    Giolito (hamstring) threw at max effort Tuesday and is expected to throw a bullpen session in the next couple days, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander landed on the injured list Friday with a strained left hamstring, and his quick return to throwing with no limitations confirms the injury as a minor concern. Giolito is expected to require two bullpen sessions before being activated, and he could be in the mix to rejoin the starting rotation next week.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Making progress

    Giolito (hamstring) began playing catch and could throw a bullpen session Wednesday in Oakland, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Giolito, who left Tuesday's start during the fifth inning with a strained left hamstring, was able to play catch by Thursday. He reported feeling much better Friday during his session on the field, which also included a "calculated" running program.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Officially lands on IL

    Giolito was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a strained left hamstring.

    It already seemed likely that Giolito would miss around 10 days at minimum, but the White Sox made the move official and called up Ryan Burr from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Giolito is eligible to return Sept. 11 against Boston, but it's unclear if he will need more time than that. He'll throw a bullpen Sept. 8 to help evaluate his progress, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Won't make next start

    White Sox manager Tony La Russa said Giolito won't be available to make his next turn through the rotation Sept. 7 in Oakland after the right-hander was diagnosed with a strained left hamstring following an exam Wednesday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

    Even though a pair of upcoming off days would allow the White Sox to reshuffle their rotation to compensate for Giolito's absence, La Russa suggested that the team would use a spot starter in the 27-year-old's place in Oakland or go with a bullpen game. Because of the flexibility afforded by the two off days and the roster expanding from 26 to 28 men Wednesday, the White Sox aren't expected to immediately place Giolito on the injured list, even though his next start looks like it'll be more than a week from now.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Dealing with tight hamstring

    Giolito was removed from Tuesday's start against the Pirates with tightness in his left hamstring.

    Giolito appeared to suffer the injury during the fifth inning while attempting to field an infield single, leading to his exit. The 27-year-old won't factor in the decision since he pitched 4.1 innings, and he gave up two runs on three hits with five strikeouts and four walks. The White Sox lost Lance Lynn (knee) to the injured list earlier Tuesday, and it's unclear whether Giolito will also require a trip to the shelf.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Exits with apparent injury

    Giolito was removed from Tuesday's game against the Pirates with an apparent leg injury, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Giolito appeared to tweak something in his leg while attempting to field an infield single during the fifth inning, and he was pulled after throwing a test pitch. He allowed two runs on three hits with five strikeouts and four walks across 4.1 innings before being removed. The White Sox have scheduled off days Thursday and Monday, so the rotation could be shuffled to provide Giolito some extra rest if he doesn't require a stint on the injured list.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Whiffs six in no-decision

    Giolito allowed a run on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts across six innings in a no-decision versus Toronto on Wednesday.

    The right-hander's lone run conceded came on a Corey Dickerson RBI triple in the fourth inning. Giolito has had a couple of short outings lately, but he's turned in quality starts in three of his last four trips to the mound. The 27-year-old has a 3.68 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 175:43 K:BB through 154 innings overall. He carries a 9-9 record into a projected home start versus Pittsburgh next week.
