White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Strikes out nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito allowed one run on seven hits with one walk and nine strikeouts across 6.2 innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Saturday.

The 25-year-old couldn't quite record the last out of the seventh, and because of the solo shot he yielded in that frame, Giolito was in line for the loss when he departed. James McCann's homer in the ninth tied the game and prevented that from happening. Giolito is 11-4 with a 3.12 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 134 strikeouts in 112.2 innings. He is due to start next at home against the Twins on Thursday.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Strikes out five in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (11-4) gave up three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five through six innings to take the loss against the Royals on Monday.

Giolito gathered 10 swinging strikes as he delivered a quality start in the hard-luck loss. The 25-year-old had dominated the Royals in his career, posting a 6-0 record with a 2.13 ERA coming into this contest. Even with the loss, this was a nice bounce-back outing for Giolito after giving up six runs in his previous start against the Cubs. Giolito has an 11-4 record with a 3.23 ERA, a 10.6 K/9 and a 3.3 BB/9 through 18 starts this season. Giolito will make his next start Saturday against the Rays at Tropicana Field.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Struggles versus Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (11-3) was dealt the loss Saturday against the Cubs after surrendering six runs on four hits and five walks across four innings. He had five strikeouts.

Giolito has allowed more than three runs only twice in his last 14 starts, both of which have been against the White Sox's crosstown rivals. The 24-year-old couldn't find his command Saturday, with the five walks setting a season high. Giolito still finishes a quality first half of the season with a 3.15 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 120:38 K:BB through 100 innings.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Snags 11th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (11-2) secured the victory after allowing one hit and striking out four over five scoreless innings against the Twins on Sunday.

Giolito was nearly untouchable, though his outing was cut short by a rain delay. He tossed 46 of 68 pitches for strikes prior to being lifted. The 24-year-old right-hander continues to throw the ball well this season, posting a 2.72 ERA and 1.02 WHIP with 115 strikeouts across 96 innings.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Walks four in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito yielded three runs on six hits and four walks across 5.2 innings Monday, striking out seven and taking a no-decision in the loss to Boston.

Giolito looked solid through the first four innings, issuing just one walk and allowing three hits, including a solo homer to Jackie Bradley Jr. Between the fifth and sixth frames, he'd give up three hits and three walks, with a bases-loaded, two-out walk to Michael Chavis ending his evening. The 24-year-old righty has been pretty successful this season with his command after leading the AL with 90 walks in 2018. However, he's walked 11 batters over his last three outings and his ERA has jumped from 2.28 to 2.87 during that span. Gioltio will get another tough matchup at home Sunday against Minnesota.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Surrenders six earned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (10-2) allowed six earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out nine across 4.1 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Cubs.

Giolito was doomed by the long ball, as he surrendered three home runs -- two to Willson Contreras -- including a grand slam in the first frame. Despite clearly lacking his best stuff, Giolito still generated nine strikeouts on 21 swinging strikes and also managed to work into the fifth inning. He's been excellent for the majority of the season, illustrated by the fact that he still has a 2.74 ERA and 1.02 WHIP after this shaky effort, and that he'd allowed more than one earned run only twice in his last nine starts entering Wednesday. Giolito will look to get back on track during his next start, which comes in the form of another tough matchup Monday at Boston.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Cruises to ninth straight win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (10-1) struck out six and picked up the win Friday in a 10-2 victory over the Yankees, allowing one run on four hits and four walks over six innings.

The right-hander has won eight straight starts and nine straight decisions, and Giolito hasn't given up more than three runs in a start since April 6. He'll carry a 2.22 ERA and 95:26 K:BB through 81 innings into his next outing Wednesday, on the road against the Cubs.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Throws another gem
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito improved to 9-1 on the season after throwing 7.2 scoreless innings Saturday against the Royals, allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out 11.

The impressive showing continued Giolito's remarkable breakout season, shrinking his ERA to 2.28. He's been especially excellent over his last four outings, allowing just three runs in 32 innings while recording a 39:4 K:BB. He'll look to keep the momentum going next Friday against the Yankees.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Wins seventh straight decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (8-1) allowed five hits and struck out nine over 7.1 scoreless innings to earn the win in Sunday's 2-0 victory over the Indians.

Giolito continued a strong stretch of pitching during which he's won six straight starts and seven straight decisions. The 24-year-old right-hander has posted a 1.03 ERA during his six-start winning streak. He controlled the zone once again, throwing 68 strikes among his 103 offerings. Walks used to be an issue for Giolito, who handed out 90 free passes in 2018 (4.7 BB/9), but he's walked just eight over his last 43.2 innings (1.6 BB/9). Giolito is in line to make his next start Friday on the road in Kansas City; however, the White Sox have a couple of off days this week and could opt to give him an extra day of rest.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Fans 10 in seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (7-1) picked up the win in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over the Royals, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk over eight innings while striking out 10.

The two teams completed Monday's suspended contest earlier in the afternoon Tuesday, and as a result Giolito's usual pre-game routine got disrupted. After serving up a three-run homer to Alex Gordon in the first inning, however, the right-hander slipped into gear and wound up tying his career high in strikeouts en route to his fifth straight win. The 24-year-old is starting to look like a bona fide ace for the White Sox, and he'll take a 2.85 ERA and 69:20 K:BB through 60 innings into his next start Sunday, at home against Cleveland.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Tosses four-hit shutout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (6-1) dominated with a four-hit, complete-game shutout against the Astros on Thursday, walking one batter while punching out nine.

Not only was it Giolito's first complete-game shutout, but it was also the first time in his career to earn four consecutive wins. The only four hits Giolito allowed were singles as the right-hander fanned a season-high nine batters and threw 87 of 107 pitches for strikes. It was quite the feat against a top-ranked Houston offense. The right-hander will carry a 2.77 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 59:19 K:BB into a favorable showdown with Kansas City on Tuesday.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Earns fifth victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (5-1) won his third straight start by pitching five innings Saturday against the Blue Jays, allowing just one run on three hits with four strikeouts and two walks.

Giolito was credited with the win after the game was called in the middle of the fifth inning. He was nicked for the Blue Jays' only run in the second inning on a single, a double and an RBI groundout by Brandon Drury. Over his last three starts, the 24-year-old has allowed only two runs, 10 hits and six walks while striking out 20 batters over 19.1 innings, lowering his ERA to 3.35 and WHIP to 1.16.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Earns fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (4-1) allowed one run on four hits with eight strikeouts and one walk across seven innings to earn a victory against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

The numbers are just beginning to show it, but Giolito has been an excellent starter over the last month. Since April 17, he has yielded four runs in 22 innings (1.64 ERA) and earned a pair of victories. He could still cut back on the walks, but Giolito has struck out 28 during that stretch. Overall, he's 4-1 with a 3.55 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 46 strikeouts in 38 innings this season. Giolito will work at home against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Tosses 7.1 scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (3-1) pitched 7.1 shutout innings while allowing just three hits with three walks and eight strikeouts in a victory against the Indians on Tuesday.

The Indians had baserunners in five of the seven complete innings Giolito pitched, but he permitted a runner to reach third base just once. The victory improved Giolito to 3-1, and in his last three starts, Giolito owns a 1.80 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 15 innings. Overall, he has submitted a 4.06 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 38 strikeouts across 31 innings this year. Giolito will look to keep this hot streak going on the road against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: No-decision in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito threw five innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Thursday, giving up three earned runs on seven hits over five innings, striking out seven and walking two as the White Sox won 6-4.

The right-hander made it through five frames in his first start after his activation from the injured list from a hamstring injury, throwing 98 pitches before exiting the contest and settling for a no-decision. He'll carry a 5.44 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP through 23.2 innings into his next start, which will see him take on the Indians in a Tuesday road matchup.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (hamstring) was activated ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Red Sox.

As expected, Giolito has been cleared to rejoin the starting rotation ahead of Thursday's series opener after spending two weeks on the injured list with a left hamstring strain. Prior to landing on the shelf, the right-hander notched a 5.30 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 23:10 K:BB across four starts (18.2 innings). Carlos Rodon was (elbow) sent to the injured list in a corresponding move.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Expected to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Thursday against the Red Sox, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Giolito has been sidelined for almost two weeks due to a left hamstring strain, but it sounds like he's finally ready to rejoin the big-league rotation after completing a 50-pitch bullpen session with no issues earlier in the week. Prior to landing on the shelf, the right-hander compiled a 5.30 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 23:10 K:BB through four starts (18.2 innings).

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Throws successful side session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (hamstring) felt good after a 50-pitch bullpen session Monday.

Giolito left his previous start April 17 against the Royals with left hamstring tightness, but his stay on the injured list appears unlikely to last much longer than the minimum 10 days. He's already eligible to return, though the White Sox have yet to announce when he'll be activated.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Testing hamstring Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito will test his strained hamstring with another side session Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Giolito is already eligible to return from the injured list but will need at least a few more days. His exact return date should become clearer following Monday's session.

White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Nearing return to rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giolito (hamstring) is expected to pitch on the White Sox's current homestand, which runs through May 5, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Giolito threw a side session Friday and is expected to require an additional throwing session before being cleared to return. General manager Rick Hahn indicated the team may need a spot starter, making a return on the back end of the homestand seem more likely.
