This is Giolito’s first full season in the Majors, and although he got off to a rough start to the year, he still has time to close 2018 successfully. The Sox rebuild this season has been tough to watch for many fans, but Giolito and other young players have been given many opportunities this year to develop. If Giolito can continue pitching well as he has in July, expect the right-hander to end the season with positive momentum towards 2019.
