Lucas Giolito Has Become A New Man
Is this the same guy from last year? The same pitcher we traded Adam Eaton for? One thing is for sure, Lucas Giolito is showing he has ACE potential.
The numbers do not lie. Lucas worked on his throwing mechanics during the offseason and the fruit of his labor truly shows.
Giolito’s performance last night against the Kansas City Royals started off rocky, as he let up one home run that was a three-run shot and walked one batter in the first inning. After that, he was lights out.
Lucas Giolito through 10 starts last season: 3-5, 7.53 ERA, 49 IP, 47 H, 41 ER, 37 BB, 27 K, 1.71 WHIP.
Lucas Giolito through 10 starts this season: 7-1, 2.85 ERA, 60 IP, 39 H, 19 ER, 20 BB, 69 K, 0.98 WHIP.
The improvement from last year to this year is night and day and should be appreciated. Lucas Giolito has made himself a legitimate threat that teams need to gameplan for. Hard work and determination has set him apart from the rest and White Sox fans cannot wait to see what else he has in store for the rest of the 2019 season.
