I’m writing this on Friday, and the Giants don’t have a projected starter after Anthony DeSclafani was returned to the Injured List. So I’d guess we’re gonna see Sean Hjelle (who has a locker for the series) get his first chance to start an MLB game. If so, Hjelle, a righty, has a 4.50 ERA and a 1.63 FIP on the year, with 6 strikeouts and 0 walks in 4 innings. If he doesn’t start, those are still his numbers, but they don’t mean as much.
On the White Sox end of things is righty Lucas Giolito, who has received Cy Young votes in each of the last three seasons. He’s having a down year, as he’s 4-4 with a 5.19 ERA, a 4.79 FIP, and 82 strikeouts to 27 walks in 69.1 innings.
