Giolito (Tommy John surgery) is now throwing from 120 feet and the Nationals are hoping he'll be ready to take the mound for some bullpen sessions starting in May, the Washington Post reports. "It definitely feels very good and very strong," Giolito said of his surgically-repaired elbow. "Thereís no more feeling of, ĎOh, Iím gonna throw but I donít know how itís going to feel.í Itís totally gone. It was like that after the initial injury. Now itís no holds barred, getting after it."

2014

2013

The 16th overall pick in the draft went under the knife for the least surprising Tommy John surgery ever in August, and the Nationals do not expect to get anything for their $3 million signing bonus until 2014. Giolito could be worth the wait though. Were it not for his elbow trouble he very well might have gone first overall, as high schoolers with prototypical power pitcher builds and fastballs that light up the third digit on the radar gun tend to get scouts drooling. It will be a long road back for Giolito, but if any team can get the most out of him it would be the Nats (see: Strasburg, Stephen and Zimmermann, Jordan).
