Lucas Giolito struck out eight but was limited to four innings in his return from a hamstring injury on Tuesday.
Additionally, Giolito gave up three runs on three hits and two walks. The strikeouts were nice, but this wasn't the start fantasy managers were hoping for. Gioltio should be able to pitch deeper into the game in his next outing against the Tigers.
Starting pitcher Lucas Giolito (hamstring) has been activated from the 10-day injured list by the White Sox.
Giolito’s return will strengthen the AL Central leading White Sox rotation even more as they continue their pursuit of the best record in the American League. Giolito will definitely play an important role in that. Prior to his injury, Giolito had nine wins and nine losses to go with a 3.69 earned run average and 180 strikeouts in 158.1 innings pitched.
White Sox starter Lucas Giolito, who is currently on the injured list with a strained left hamstring, should return to make a start next Tuesday.
Giolito, a 2019 All-Star, has had another solid season in the Chicago rotation. Through 27 starts, he is 9-9 with a 3.69 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and .221 OBA. The right-hander has also walked 47 batters while striking out 180.
Lucas Giolito threw at full effort with no reported issues on Tuesday.
Giolito is expected to throw two more bullpen sessions before he can return.
Lucas Giolito was placed on the 10-day IL due to a left hamstring strain. He had left his start on Tuesday early against the Orioles.
It is unclear how long Giolito will be out of Chicago's rotation. We can expect the White Sox to play it very safe as they have a 9.5 game lead in their division. He carries a 3.69 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 180 strikeouts this season. Hopefully he is back soon.
