White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Rick Renteria said Giolito will not make another start this season, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

Giolito racked up a combined 174 innings this season -- up from his 136 innings in 2016 -- prompting the White Sox to cut his season short in an effort to preserve his arm. The 23-year-old bounced back after struggling to a 6.75 ERA in his first taste of the majors last season, compiling an impressive 2.38 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in 45.1 innings for the White Sox this year. After displaying flashes of why he was once a top pitching prospect, Giolito could be poised for a breakout campaign in 2018. He should be on track to toss around 200 innings next season.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Gets third win with seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (3-3) allowed just one run on five hits while striking out five without a walk over seven strong innings to pick up the win over Kansas City on Sunday.

Giolito's only blemish was a third-inning solo homer by Lorenzo Cain, as the 23-year-old righty cruised to an 8-1 win while staying under the 100-pitch mark at 98. Despite decreased fastball velocity due to fatigue, Giolito has confounded opposing offenses since being called up to Chicago with quality starts in five of seven outings. He's scheduled to take the mound for the final time this season Friday in Cleveland.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Overcomes decreased fastball velo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito was able to overcome lower-than normal fastball velocity with a stellar changeup in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Astros, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

Giolito has thrown a season-high 167 innings this season, so reduced fastball velocity is to be expected. He overcame that with a changeup he threw 18 times with 11 going for strikes. "The changeup was a good pitch for me aside from a few I left up in the zone," Giolito said. "I had a lot of confidence in it and that was probably the offspeed pitch I was most comfortable going to in situations." This was another test for the young pitcher, being able to squelch a dangerous lineup without his best stuff. He's thrown four quality starts in six outings since his callup to Chicago and has been a much better this season than during his introduction to MLB in 2016 while with the Nationals.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Tosses quality start against Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (2-3) allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk over 6.2 innings Tuesday against the Astros. He struck out three and was saddled with the loss.

Giolito pitched well Tuesday but was stuck with the loss after the White Sox's offense was only able to muster up one run on the night. After appearing overmatched at the big-league level with the Nationals last season (6.75 ERA over 21.1 IP), the young righty has looked much more composed with his new organization in 2017, as he now holds a 2.58 ERA in his six starts since being recalled on Aug. 22. He lines up for a start against the Royals on Sunday.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Grinds through start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito was pleased to be able to grind out a quality start Wednesday while not being at his best, the Chicago Tribune reports. "To come out and pitch on the road and not have your best stuff working from the get-go and then just keep grinding through to try and get ahead of batters to the best of my ability (was good)," Giolito said.

Giolito, who threw only 11 first-pitch strikes over 27 batters faced, didn't author a clean inning until the fifth. This was more than just a quality start; it was part of his on-the-job learning process as a pitcher in the majors. The young right-hander acknowledged he still has some work to do, particularly in the area of throwing strike one, but emerged from the start with more confidence. Through five MLB starts, Giolito is 2-2 with a 2.56 ERA.
