No junior college player has posted more impressive numbers than Giacalone over the last two seasons. As a freshman, he led the nation with 102 RBIs and ranked third with 18 homers while also going 10-1, 2.70. This year, he helped Neosho County make its first Juco World Series appearance in nine years by hitting .407/.537/.785 through regional play and going 8-3, 1.72 on the mound with an 85-4 K-BB ratio in 89 innings. Scouts like his bat more than his arm, and the 6-foot-2, 215-pounder has dropped 20 pounds from 2011. He makes consistent contact from the left side of the plate, with good but not great bat speed that portends average power. He's a below-average runner with good hands at first base, and a pro team could be tempted to try him at third base or possibly catcher. A righthanded pitcher, he succeeds more with finesse than power but can get his fastball up to 91 mph. He'll continue to play both ways if he attends Tennessee in 2013.
