White Sox will have 7 home starts to cover after Detroit without Lucas Giolito and without Dylan Covey. I would guess Lopez, Nova and Detwiler get one more each, Cease most likely and a bullpen day on the final Sunday. So that leaves two, with Hector Santiago a candidate.

I've covered two of these three pitchers.
The White Sox officially are break even at 34-34. Cruise to an easy 10-1 victory over the Yankees behind Lucas Giolito, who is 10-1, and Eloy Jimenez, who hit two homers and drove in 6. Jose Abreu leads the AL in RBIs. Giolito leads the Majors in wins.
Lucas Giolito’s night …
The first @whitesox pitcher to throw a shutout and throw 107 pitches or less since Chris Sale on 4/15/16.
The most strikes thrown (82) in a White Sox shutout since John Danks on 5/31/15.
Lucas Giolito is now 5-0 with a 1.24 ERA in his last five starts. The only White Sox pitcher over the last dozen seasons to go 5-0 with a sub-1.25 ERA over a five start span is Chris Sale. Sale did that in both 2012 and 2016(three different five-start spans).
