"I can pitch at 93 if I'm hitting my spots and mixing up [pitches] well," Giolito said. "I think I left way too many fastballs up over the middle of the plate. Those are the ones that got hit pretty hard. The velocity I don't think is a huge deal as long as I am pitching the way I should be pitching."
"The big thing is you have to command off-speed pitches," Giolito said. "You're going to get in trouble when you don't command those pitches. When you can't throw a curveball for a strike or a changeup in a hitter's count, then you get into trouble and I've been dealing with a lot of that."
