Starting Pitchers

Brad Keller (2-4, 7.31 ERA) vs. Lucas Giolito (2-3, 4.54 ERA)

  • The White Sox have recalled Alex McRae to serve as the 27th man on the roster in today’s doubleheader.
  • Lucas Giolito will look to improve upon his last outing against Kansas City, where he only struck out two hitters in five innings. He faces a Royals team that he has fared very well against in his career.

What’s your take on Giolito.He seems tobe missing something and its hard to say if its physical
or mental.
