In Baseball America’s new Midseason Prospect Update, righthander Lucas Giolito is at No. 1 for the Washington Nationals, just as he was coming into the season. Giolito has been in the South Atlantic League for the entirety of the 2014 season, putting up solid numbers with the Hagerstown Suns. With 65.2 innings under his belt so far this year, Giolito has a 2.47 ERA and 72:24 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Giolito is already handling his largest professional workload; he had Tommy John surgery on Aug. 31, 2012, and pitched just 37 innings last year.
Here’s video of Giolito on the mound with Hagerstown this season:
