  • Offseason In Review: Boston Red Sox

    Headshot for Lucas Giolito

    The Red Sox had a very quiet offseason, as their big moves were trading away one starting pitcher and signing another, though the latter of the two eventually required season-ending surgery. Major League Signings RHP Lucas Giolito: Two years, $38.5MM (Giolito can opt-out after '24; includes conditional option for '26) RHP Liam Hendriks: Two years,...

  • Lucas Giolito Undergoes Internal Brace Procedure

    Headshot for Lucas Giolito

    March 13: The Red Sox announced this morning that Giolito underwent an internal brace procedure to repair the UCL in his right elbow. That comes with a shorter recovery timetable than a full Tommy John surgery and will give the right-hander a chance to pitch the entire 2025 season if things go smoothly in his…

  • Lucas Giolito Has Successful Elbow Surgery

    Headshot for Lucas Giolito

    Boston Red Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito (elbow) had successful right-elbow UCL repair with internal brace on Tuesday. The procedure was performed by Dr. Jeffrey Dugas at the Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopedics Center in Birmingham, Alabama. Giolito will miss all of the 2024 season as a result, but it's still considered good news overall, as he was able to avoid having the second Tommy John surgery of his career. If everything goes well with his recovery this year and into next offseason, the 29-year-old could have a shot to be ready for Opening Day in 2025 for the BoSox. Giolito was hoping to rebound from a rocky 2023 campaign that saw him pitch for three different teams (White Sox, Angels, Reds), but that will now have to wait until 2025.

  • Lucas Giolito Set To Undergo Surgery

    Headshot for Lucas Giolito

    Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Lucas Giolito (elbow) will have surgery on his right elbow Tuesday afternoon. The extent of the ligament damage isn't known. It's possible Giolito needs Tommy John surgery but he could also require just a brace procedure. Either way, he is most assuredly out for 2024. If he requires Tommy John, it could push his start to the 2025 season back, but if it's the brace procedure, he could be ready by the time the offseason comes around. Last week it was reported the 29-year-old had a partial tear in his UCL and a flexor strain, so the news has been bleak recently. He should now be avoided by all redraft leagues. Even in dynasty leagues, it could be time to move on, as Giolito hasn't posted a respectable ERA, FIP or WHIP since 2021. His strikeout potential is what he has to hang his hat on.

  • Lucas Giolito Going For Second Opinion

    Headshot for Lucas Giolito

    Boston Red Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito (elbow) will have a second opinion on Monday from Dr. Dugas in Alabama. Manager Alex Cora said that surgery is a possibility, but the team will know more next week. Dugas is the same doctor that did Garrett Whitlock's Tommy John surgery. The 29-year-old is dealing with a partially torn UCL and flexor strain in his right elbow and is probably going to be forced to miss all of the 2024 season, especially if he undergoes Tommy John surgery. It's a big blow to Boston's starting rotation before the start of the year. To say the least, fantasy managers should be avoiding Giolito in upcoming fantasy drafts. His 2023 season was a disaster, pitching for three different teams and posting a 4.88 ERA.

    Red Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito experienced discomfort in his right elbow after his most recent throwing session, manager Alex Cora announced Tuesday morning (X link via Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic).

  • Lucas Giolito Could Miss Entire Season With Partially Torn UCL

    Headshot for Lucas Giolito

    Feeling discomfort after his last spring outing, Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Lucas Giolito (elbow) was checked out, and imaging showed that he likely has a partially torn UCL and a flexor strain. Giolito may need surgery, which would mean he'd miss the entire season. The former first-round draft pick signed with Boston in the offseason, and after the departure of Chris Sale, leaves Boston very thin in their starting rotation.
