Lucas Giolito

Chicago White Sox

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Lucas Giolito has thrown 10,107 pitches that have been tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2016 and 2021, all of them occuring in the MLB Regular Season. In 2021, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (94mph) and Change (82mph), also mixing in a Slider (86mph). He also rarely throws a Curve (81mph).


In 2021, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has essentially average velo and has some added backspin. His change generates more whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups and has slightly below average velo. His slider has primarily 12-6 movement and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' sliders. His curve (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 19 of them in 2021) generates an extremely high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual, results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' curves and has a sharp downward bite.
