Chicago White Sox
The White Sox got Monday off and will only be in St. Louis for a quick two-game series before going back home for a six-game home stand.
Of course, Chicago didn’t have to go far. It was in Kansas City over the weekend, where it won three out of five in a series that included a make-up game from an earlier rain-out.
Lucas Giolito was the biggest name that came over from Washington in the Adam Eaton trade over a year ago. He was once a very highly touted pitching prospect and has had some struggles since.
His overall numbers last season were actually quite good, albeit in just seven starts. He finished with a 2.38 ERA and only walked 12 in 45 innings.
Well, he’s walked 21 in about half as many innings so far this season. He’s also giving up just about a hit an inning after being well under that mark last year.
So he’s capable of better. Chicago will prioritize his development and if he has to take a break from the starting rotation at the big league level, the Sox won’t hesitate to make a move.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Pirates swept the Cardinals over the weekend but St. Louis has Carlos Martinez ready to get his team back into the win column on Wednesday.
The Birds are also favored on Tuesday night but that game has yet to be played as I write this.
Martinez has simply turned into one of the very best starting pitchers in the game, and one that is often overlooked. He got hit around a little bit on Opening Day against the Mets but he’s been stellar since.
He’s thrown 33.1 innings in five starts since his first one and has given up two earned runs. He’s struck out 35 and walked 11. His walk numbers have been high but he didn’t walk any in his last start for the first time all season. He should dominate.
