Lucas Giolito had four quality starts, a 1.71 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 8.7 percent walk and 22.0 percent strikeout rate in his past four starts for Triple-A Charlotte. It's not the easiest remaining schedule for White Sox pitchers -- lots of Indians, Royals, Tigers and some Astros -- but this is still a front-of-rotation prospect worth adding in 12-plus-team mixed leagues.
Pair of Braves highlight Thursday's longest HRs
Ian Happ may have hit a 443-foot home run, but the rookie was overshadowed by Freddie Freeman and Ender Inciarte, who each hit home runs more than 430 feet in the Braves' 10-4 win against the Rockies.

Lopez exits with injury
White Sox RHP Reynaldo Lopez left Thursday's start vs. the Rangers with soreness on his right side. The 23-year-old allowed six runs (five earned) on five hits, walked four and struck out six prior to departing in the fifth inning. Lopez now owns a 6.10 ERA in two starts since Chicago called him up from Triple-A earlier this month.

Covey returns for White Sox
The White Sox activated RHP Dylan Covey (oblique) from the 10-day disabled list. The Rule 5 pick has been out since late May and owns an 8.12 ERA across eight previous starts this season. He'll take Tyler Clippard's spot on the active roster.
GM Rick Hahn has seemingly timed many of his recent trades to near perfection, getting high-end prospects in return. Perhaps the best window to deal Abreu will be this winter.
