    Lucas Giolito will make his White Sox debut on Monday during a doubleheader versus the Twins.
    The White Sox are also promoting Michael Kopech from Double- to Triple-A. Giolito holds an underwhelming 4.48 ERA with 59 walks over 128 2/3 innings this season at Triple-A Charlotte, but he's also struck out 134 and had posted a 1.71 ERA over his last five starts. He could wind up sticking around beyond Monday if Reynaldo Lopez (oblique) needs a trip to the disabled list. >>


    Not sure that a 4.48 ERA in AAA indicates wonderful things to come in the majors this season.  Clearly he
    has the gun to be successful if he can find home plate.  Fortunately time is on his side.
