White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Settles for no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito hurled six innings against Kansas City on Wednesday, allowing one run on four hits and one walk while striking out seven. He did not factor in the decision.

The right-hander breezed through six scoreless innings before giving up back-to-back doubles that resulted in a run in the seventh. He was in line to pick up his ninth win of the season until Salvador Perez hit a game-tying home run off Liam Hendriks in the ninth frame. Giolito racked up 18 swinging strikes in the outing and appeared to regain his control after walking five batters against Milwaukee in his previous start. He'll carry a 3.67 ERA into a rematch against the Royals -- this time in Chicago -- early next week.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Hard-luck loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (8-7) allowed a run on six hits and five walks while striking out three in six innings, taking the loss versus Milwaukee on Friday.

Despite matching his season-high total for baserunners, the right-hander was able to limit the damage to just one run. Giolito kept the White Sox in it, but relievers Aaron Bummer and Ryan Burr melted down in the seventh inning. Through 119 innings, Giolito owns a 3.78 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 136:38 K:BB this year. He projects to make his next start in Kansas City next week.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Throws complete game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (8-6) earned the win over Houston on Saturday, allowing one run on three hits while striking out eight over nine innings.

Giolito was supported by five home runs, which certainly made life easy for the White Sox's ace, but he didn't need it. After allowing a first-inning double to Michael Brantley, Giolito retired 22 consecutive batters before Abraham Toro touched him for a two-out home run in the eighth. This was his first complete game since he no-hit the Pirates on Aug. 25 last season. Giolito's next turn through the rotation lines up for Friday on the road against Milwaukee.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Grinds out win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (7-6) allowed two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out nine over 5.1 innings to earn the victory in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Orioles.

Giolito needed 106 pitches to get 16 outs, but all of his pitches were working and he managed 16 swings-and-misses. He heads into the All-Star break at 7-6 with a 4.15 ERA and 10.8 K/9. While fellow starters Lance Lynn and Carlos Rodon take part in the Midsummer Classic, Giolito can rest up the next few days and could pitch the first game after the break, Friday at home against Houston.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Hit hard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (6-6) took the loss Sunday versus Detroit. He allowed six runs on 10 hits and a walk with five strikeouts in five innings.

The 10 hits were a season high for the right-hander, while the six runs were the second-highest total he's allowed this year. Sunday was also Giolito's shortest outing since May 9. The 26-year-old has a 4.20 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 116:31 K:BB across 98.2 innings this year. He'll look to limit the damage in his next start, which lines up as a favorable road matchup in Baltimore next weekend.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Collects sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (6-5) picked up the win in Tuesday's 7-6 victory over the Twins, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out one.

It wasn't a dominant performance, and Giolito looked like he might be in for a rough night after Josh Donaldson took him deep in the first inning, but the right-hander settled down and delivered his fourth straight quality start and eighth of the year. Giolito will take a 3.84 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 111:30 K:BB through 93.2 innings into his next outing.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito won't start as scheduled Monday against the Twins since the game was postponed due to rain.

The contest will be made up as part of a doubleheader July 19. According to Scott Merkin of MLB.com, Giolito will take the mound Tuesday versus Minnesota, pushing back Dylan Cease at least a day.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Strikes out seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven across six innings Tuesday against the Pirates. He did not factor into the decision.

Giolito took advantage of the soft matchup to pick up his third consecutive quality start. In that span, he's racked a 23:5 K:BB across 18 innings while surrendering only seven earned runs. Tuesday's start was highlighted by eight flyball outs, and the only major damage Giolito surrendered was a solo home run to Adam Frazier. Overall, Giolito now has a 3.80 ERA with 110 strikeouts across 87.2 frames on the campaign.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Solid in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven in six innings of Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.

The righty cruised through four innings before yielding two runs in the fifth and another in the sixth. Despite leaving the game with a 7-3 lead, Giolito did not earn a win thanks to his bullpen's failures in the ensuing innings. He has now logged a quality start in five of his last six outings. Giolito is expected to make his next start Tuesday against the Pirates, whom he no-hit a season ago.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Misses out on win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out nine over six innings in a no-decision Friday in a 5-4 extra-inning win over Detroit.

Giolito was in line for the win, but closer Liam Hendriks coughed up a two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning. It was the fourth quality start over the last five appearances of Giolito, who has a 2.38 ERA and 0.88 WHIP during that run. The right-hander is in line to next start Wednesday at home against Tampa Bay.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Handed loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (5-5) took the loss Saturday against Detroit, surrendering four runs on seven hits while striking out nine across seven innings.

The right-hander was bit by the long ball Saturday, with all of his runs coming on a pair of homers from Eric Haase and another one from Miguel Cabrera. He was still able to persevere through seven innings on 103 pitches, racking up nine strikeouts along the way. He'll look to get back in the win column and shoot for his fourth victory in a five-outing stretch when he takes the ball in a rematch against the Tigers next Friday.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Fans 12 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (5-4) allowed a run on three hits and three walks with 12 strikeouts in seven innings in a win over Baltimore on Sunday.

For the fifth time in his last six starts, Giolito limited the opposition to only one earned run. The right-hander's lone mistake Sunday was a solo shot to DJ Stewart in the third inning. After a rough start to the season, Giolito has bounced back well with a strong May. He's posted a 3.73 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 78:24 K:BB across 62.2 innings overall. He'll look to build on his three-game win streak next weekend versus Detroit.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Turns in another strong effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (4-4) allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and no walks while striking out five across six innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Giolito was given a five-run lead after two innings, and he took advantage by attacking the strike zone and avoiding walks. Both of his runs came in the third inning, though the rally was aided by a Yoan Moncada throwing error as well as an infield hit. Overall, it was another strong outing for Giolito, and he has now allowed just two earned runs across his last 14 innings of work. Giolito is projected to make his next start Sunday against Baltimore.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Fades late in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (1-2) picked up the loss against the Tigers on Tuesday, giving up four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out seven over 6.2 innings.

Giolito and the White Sox were clinging to a 2-1 lead when manager Tony La Russa let the right-hander, who had thrown 89 pitches, start the seventh inning, but it all caved in on the pitcher. The Tigers pushed across three runs, and La Russa removed Giolito after a four-pitch walk and 114 pitches. It was Giolito's second straight loss after being roughed up in Boston last week. On the plus side, there was no indication that the cut he sustained on a finger over the weekend had any effect. Chicago's ace is next scheduled to start Sunday at home against Cleveland.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Set for Tuesday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (finger) will start Tuesday against Detroit, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Giolito was pushed back from Sunday's start with a cut that he suffered on his finger. However, the injury won't keep him out long term, as he is the confirmed starter for the team's opening game of its series against Detroit.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Bumped from Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito will not start Sunday against the Rangers, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Though the move was reportedly not related to injury originally, it was later revealed that Giolito cut his finger on a bottle, according to Scott Merkin of MLB.com. It remains unclear when Giolito will take the mound next, though it could be for the first game of the team's series against Detroit on Tuesday. Michael Kopech will take the mound in Giolito's place Sunday against Texas.
