Lucas Giolito

The Chicago White Sox might want to consider moving Lucas Giolito.

The Chicago White Sox could be in the market to add another starter if they decide to move on from Lucas Giolito. He was one of the best pitchers in baseball from 2019-2021 but was absolutely terrible in 2022. He wasn't like Dallas Keuchel bad or anything but he wasn't up to his standards and it was tough to watch at times.

Now, the White Sox have to battle with the idea of trading him. If they move him, there is a good chance that he regains his confidence with another club and snaps in 2023. There is also a chance that he continues his downward spiral. Either of those two things could very well happen.

If they move him, what can they get for him? Well, probably not his whole value because of the year that he had in 2022. However, there might be a team that considers giving something somewhat good because of the ceiling that he can potentially reach. This is a good pitcher.

We don't know if the White Sox are going to trade any pitchers but it is absolutely something that they can consider. If they do it before spring training begins, it could very well end up being one of these three. Regardless of what they do, we have to hope it makes them a better baseball team.

Next. The White Sox should consider a trade for Max Fried. dark
