SP - CWS - IL10
As announced by the team prior Friday evening's game, Lucas Giolito has been placed on the COVID-19 Related Injured List.
Giolito has been placed on the IL due to a COVID-19 related matter and will have to clear protocol before returning to the team. The 27-year-old is 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA this season.
Lucas Giolito earned the win over Cleveland allowing six hits (including a home run), one earned run while striking out five batters and walking two in seven innings.
It was a great outing for Giolito who earned his second win on the season. He has now earned back-to-back wins and is showing why he is considered an ace. He is firmly in the Cy Young race and will be an elite pitching option.
Lucas Giolito allowed three hits, three earned runs while striking out 10 batters and walking two in the win over the Cubs.
In this one, Giolito was lights out other than a blip in the 2nd inning where he allowed two Cubs to go yard. The White Sox ace finally notched his first win on the year despite solid outings in each of his first three starts and will look to keep it going.
White Sox starter Lucas Giolito pitched decently on Friday, but Chicago's offense once again failed to support him. He pitched six innings, allowing three earned runs on seven hits and a walk, while striking out seven in the loss.
Giolito finally earned a decision, just not the one fantasy managers were looking for. He fell to 0-1 on the year, despite having a solid 2.57 ERA. The White Sox ace allowed a leadoff home run to Taylor Ward, and then another to Shohei Ohtani in the first inning. After that, Giolito was solid, but the White Sox offense continued to struggle mightily. Until they can start producing runs for any of their starters, a quality start and avoiding a loss would be a big win for fantasy managers.
Lucas Giolito was activated off the 10-day IL Sunday morning and promptly made his second start of the season. He was a little erratic, walking three in just four innings of work, but he also struck out nine batters in a no-decision.
It's no surprise that Giolito only threw 76 pitches and was pulled after four innings. Expect him to be stretched out a bit more over the next couple of starts, but the nine strikeouts is a great sign that he still has elite stuff.
