Lucas Giolito showed why he still remains solidly on various top-100 prospect lists despite a rather volatile first half by striking out 10 Louisville Bats over a seven-inning complete game on Saturday. Baseball Prospectus’ Jeff Long watched it:
Very impressed with Lucas Giolito so far tonight. Don't let his numbers fool you.— Jeff Long (@JeffLongBP) July 9, 2017
To which pitcher-watcher Jon Roegele replied:
Always wondered if he was rushed back after TJ surgery. Had the 4th fastest return time to same level/higher of the 400+ pros I've tracked. https://t.co/AvxzuSx4Ks— Jon Roegele (@MLBPlayerAnalys) July 9, 2017
