Lucas Giolito is having a rough go of things in his second year with the White Sox. Giolito stuck around for only four outs Thursday, but he allowed the Orioles to do plenty of damage, giving up seven runs on six hits – two of which were back-to-back home runs to start the second inning – and three walks. All of Giolito’s struggles have fans wondering why the White Sox haven’t sent him down to Triple-A to work on his craft.

Cease, no slouch in the rankings at No. 5 in the White Sox organization and No. 56 in baseball, is having a nice season at Class A Winston-Salem.

Yoan Moncada’s development is one of the most important things at the major league level during this rebuilding, developmental season. Remember, this is a guy who was baseball’s top-ranked prospect a year ago, and there are expectations that he will be one of the best players – if not the best player – on the next championship-contending White Sox team.
