He began his career by averaging more than a strikeout per inning in 23 2/3 frames for the Lansing Lugnuts in 2013, then went 7-3 with a 2.47 ERA with 81 Ks in 76 2/3 innings for the Dunedin Blue Jays in 2014. He split 2015 between Dunedin (20 G, 1.32 ERA), the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (21 G, 0.62 ERA) and Triple-A Buffalo Bisons (4 G, 6.75 ERA) to go a combined 4-2 with a 1.34 ERA in 45 games, striking out 58 batters and walking only nine in 60 1/3 innings. He was a Florida State League Mid-Season All-Star and, after posting a 1.80 ERA in seven games for the Salt River Rafters in the Arizona Fall League, was named an AFL Rising Star. Baseball America ranked him the #16 prospect in Blue Jays system going into 2016.
He began 2016 with Buffalo, but after winning two games early in the season, earned a promotion to the majors. In his first big league appearance, on April 22nd against the Oakland Athletics, Girodo tossed two scoreless innings in a losing effort. He pitched 14 times for the Jays in what turned out to be his lone major league season, going 0-0, 4.35 over 10 1/3 innings.
