RHP Lu­cas Gi­olito Washington Na­tion­als

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

The 2012 first-round pick started the Fu­tures Game for the U.S. team and threw a pair of score­less in­nings. Af­ter turn­ing 21 ear­lier this month, he was pro­moted to Class AA on Satur­day. For high Class A Po­tomac, he had 86 strike­outs in 69 2/3 in­nings and a 2.71 ERA, though he has got­ten bet­ter as the sea­son has worn on. The Na­tion­als need bullpen help now, but they also be­lieve Gi­olito will be in their ro­ta­tion in 2017 — at the latest. Scouts and ex­ec­u­tives from other teams be­lieve Gi­olito is un­touch­able.
