In a 2017 season that marked their first in a long-term rebuilding process, the White Sox were enthused by the development of many of their youngsters, including young right-handers Reynaldo Lopez and Lucas Giolito.

Both received call-ups to the big leagues in the second half. Lopez, 23, flashed his potential at times and encountered a rocky path in other situations, going 3-3 with a 4.72 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 2.14 strikeout-to-walk ration. Giolito, 23, was splendid, going 3-3 with a 2.38 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 2.83 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Between Triple-A and the big leagues, Lopez logged 168 2/3 innings. Across the same stops, Giolito registered 174 innings.

Both marked career-highs. Now, as the attention turns to 2018, part of their development will include aiming for the 200-inning threshold, general manager Rick Hahn said on Inside the Clubhouse on 670 The Score.
