Chicago White Sox Rumors: 3 Potential Landing Spots for Lucas Giolito

The Chicago White Sox have struggled immensely this season, and they are expected to be sellers at the deadline because of it. Pending unrestricted free agent Lucas Giolito is a prime rental candidate for them, so let's discuss three possible landing spots for him. 

Baltimore Orioles: The Baltimore Orioles have been very good this season, sporting a 37-23 record. As a result, they are in a position to be buyers at the deadline. When noting that they could use another strong option in their rotation, they surely could be in the mix for Giolito's services.

Texas Rangers: The Texas Rangers were dealt brutal injury news when it was announced that Jason deGrom is set for Tommy John Surgery. Texas will now need to bring in at least one starter before the deadline passes, so look for them to be among the clubs interested in Giolito this deadline season. 

Pittsburgh Pirates: The Pittsburgh Pirates are still in the NL Central hunt and could be buyers at the deadline if they continue to play well. When noting that pitching is an area that they could improve, they could be dark horses in the Giolito sweepstakes.
