Interesting early season matchup with Harvard Westlake vs. Valencia. A couple very highly ranked juniors going at it

Here is a link to an article in the LA Times with a video of the matchup.

Thanks for posting the link.

I was able to see Giolito at the Area Code Games last August and took the following notes:

++ build for age, could be a 2013 with his B/D, slow paced delivery, hand drop set, long loose arm, warms up at 91-93, + fast arm, limited feel for off speed, CB spin not tight, not wild but not throwing to spots, very young but very, very good. FB 92-94 (T96), CB 78, Chg 85.

Interesting side note about Giolito. His father, Rick, is one of the major players in the video game industry and currently the President of Trilogy Studios and former VP for EA.

Thanks for sharing your notes, Dave. I've seen the times video, and Giolito's mechanics look very deliberate, which isn't surprising considering his size and height for his age. the arm looks exaclty as you describe but it also appears that he's not using his legs much in his delivery. What were your impressions on that score?

I think Giolito is referred to as a top 2011 in the Pacific region preview. He's a 2012, isn't he?
