Perfect Game Profile

Giolito has a wide array of pitches that he throws with confidence. A sinking fastball that is consistently in the mid-90s is his best pitch, but he also throws a mid-80s slider and a high-70s curveball. He has a large, strong build, combined with an easy delivery, downward throwing angle and high release point. Giolito can be overpowering on the mound, as he has a very high ceiling and polished tools. These attributes make him one of the top pitching prospects in the class. Perfect Game ranks Giolito #1 nationally among all pitchers.
