Lucas Giolito speaks to MLB Network

The Chicago White Sox didn’t get a good season from Lucas Giolito in 2022. He wasn’t as bad as a “bad pitcher” but he didn’t have a good season for his standards at all. The White Sox had a .500 season and Giolito’s struggles were a big part of it.

This was surprising because Giolito was a top-ten American League pitcher in 2019, 2020, and 2021. As a result, he deserves the chance to bounce back in 2023. His trade value is as low as it can be right now so there is no point in not giving him that chance. He might reward them a lot.

Giolito doesn’t have to be the ace anymore either. Dylan Cease has taken that role on and Lance Lynn with Michael Kopech each have the ability to dominate games as well. They are looking for both Giolito and Mike Clevinger to bounce back this year to form a great overall rotation.

Giolito went on MLB Network this week to speak about a variety of topics. He talked about things like his off-season challenges, how he plans for things to change in 2023, the addition of Andrew Benintendi, and his conversations with Pedro Grifol.
