Has Lucas Giolito finally figured it out? I think he has. This kid has been on an absolute tear here over his first seven starts and looks like a completely different pitcher than he did last year.
His 10.89 K/9 is the best out of any pitcher 24 years of age or younger. That is absolutely huge. Lucas has really gone the extra mile this year and by changing his pitching motion, it has greatly benefited his game.
I had hinted at this in a prior article here at OnTapSportsNet.Com, that if Lucas continued this run, he'd be hard to beat. This is the guy the White Sox traded for. Lucas has great stuff and can be a vital piece in the rotation for years to come.
The key is the improvement and that's exactly what Sox fans have seen out of Lucas this year. Giolito starts are now being looked forward to such as Kopech days were last year. Lucas is giving Sox fans everything he has each and every time he is on the mound. It's safe to say, he hasn't disappointed.
