Giolito had the stuff to be a top-5 pick in the 2012 draft, but arm troubles scared off plenty of teams before the Nats took a chance on him with their 16th pick and signed him to a near-$3 million deal.

The righty may have the best stuff in the minors, but he won't be making the show for a few seasons. Take a look at his near-100 mph fastball while you can.
