Santa Monica, CA-born Lucas Giolito is the son of an actress and a Hollywood producer, and went to the same school as Max Fried and Jack Flaherty.

Lucas was a first-round pick in the 2012 amateur draft by the Nationals, and made his MLB debut on 6/18/16 against the New York Mets. Lucas has played for the Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Angels, Cleveland Guardians and Boston Red Sox.

Giolito was voted onto the 2019 All-Star team in only his 2nd full MLB season, and led the A.L. in Complete Games and Shutouts.

In 2020, the White Sox finally emerged as a contender for the title in the AL Central, and Lucas was at the center of things as the team's ace. On August 25th, he pitched the first no-hitter in the major leagues that season, defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-0, at Guaranteed Rate Field.

The game was played without fans present, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He struck out 13 and walked just one batter, Erik Gonzalez, the only baserunner of the evening. SS Tim Anderson helped him with a great stop of a ground ball by Bryan Reynolds, just beating him to first base in the 7th, while RF Adam Engel made a great catch on a line drive by Gonzalez to record the final out of the game. It was the 19th no-hitter in franchise history, and the first since Philip Humber's perfect game in 2012.

He is active on Twitter @LGio27.
