Harvard-Westlake High righthander and top high school prospect Lucas Giolito is likely out for the season with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, head coach Matt LaCour confirmed Wednesday afternoon. Giolito left his Tuesday start after 6 1/3 innings. It was a tough outing for him as he allowed two runs on five hits, three walks and three hit batters. He struck out four.
Surgery is not needed on Giolito's elbow. He will rest and rehab it for six to 10 weeks. The draft is approximately 12 weeks away. He was considered a candidate to be the first overall pick thanks to his ideal frame and plus arsenal.
"He's crushed. His teammates are crushed," LaCour told the Los Angeles Times' Eric Sondheimer. "His coaches are crushed, and we're going to have to spend the next two days getting back on track."
