The Chicago White Sox are placing starting pitcher Lucas Giolito on the 10-day injured list due to an abdominal injury, manager Tony La Russa said Saturday.

La Russa said the right-hander is expected to miss two starts.

Giolito left his Opening Day start Friday after four one-hit innings against the Detroit Tigers, reporting abdominal tightness on his left side. He struck out six and left the game with a 3-0 lead, but the Tigers rallied for a 5-4 win.

Giolito, 27, was 11-9 in with a 3.53 ERA in 31 starts last season. He struck out 201 batters in 178 2/3 innings.

Starter Lance Lynn also is on the injured list following right knee surgery.
