Last I remembered them saying right before spring training ended was he was throwing soft toss and was almost good to go/ it wasn’t a huge concern so with it being a few months ago hopefully nothing has flared up and he’s duly healthy

If he is fully healthy...he is gonna be a great #4 and exactly what the Sox need. 

1. Gio
2. Dallas
3. Cease
4. Gio G
5. Lopez/Kopech/Rodon

3-5 is going to be so competitive in a shortened season. I kinda want them to go 6 man rotation if Rodon and Kopech are fully healthy.

Might be a fun exercise to guess how many innings each pitcher gets if they throw 540 innings total.

There’s going to be a lot of tandem starts to begin with, I’m sure. And then the last few weeks of the season, they’ll settle on five for the remainder.

I don't see the sox giving Gio Gonzalez starts over Lopez or Rodon, and I don't really think they should.  

Same goes for Kopech, but I could see them getting cute with him since they have 7 legit SP.

I think he will be a tandem starter with Kopech, Cease, or Lopez. Hard to justify sitting Kopech to start Gio imho

I mean seeing as the world seems to be going out of its way to make sure that Gio never pitches for the Sox, his arm either needs to fall off, or COVID shuts baseball down again.

IMO we go 6 man rotation:

Giolito

DK

Cease

Lopez (We need to see how he progresses I dont want him pitching low innings or splitting games)
 

Gio

Kopech/Rodon to see who has what and then move one into the full role and the other as a spot starter/long relief.

Makes you wonder how much time he would have missed if everything was normal.
