Washington Nationals first round pick Lucas Giolito scheduled for Tommy John surgery



Lucas Giolito, the Washington Nationals first round pick (No. 16 overall) in the 2012 draft, will indeed need ligament replacement surgery (Tommy John), as reported by Amanda Comak of The Washington Times.

Giolito was examined by Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles on Wednesday and Yocum, the same surgeon who performed the procedure on Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmermann, confirmed the original diagnosis that the 18-year-old right-hander’s torn ulnar collateral ligament required surgery.

Giolito made one appearance for the Gulf Coast Nationals, pitching two innings, but complained of the same pain he experienced as a high school senior, cutting that season off after just a game and a half.

Giolito, 6'6", 230, regularly hit 100 as a prep, but now his path as a pro will follow that of Jordan Zimmermann, Stephen Strasburg and Sammy Solis as high Nats draft picks to undergo the procedure.

Bet he's glad he signed. Now Uncle Ted has to pay for it.

Don't know exactly what TJ runs but it could be 5-10 late night metro deposits worth.

The good news is that, surprisingly Dr. James Andrews (the best in the biz) is on some insurance plans.

The surgery itself was I think about $18,000. My other son's Tommy John surgery was $25,000--we paid for that, too.

I stand corrected.

No wonder they have to save $30K anywhere they can get it.

Jack McGeary made out like a champ... signed for a record $1.8M as a 6th round pick in the 2007 draft. He also got a free ride for a Stanford degree on Uncle Ted's dime, and capped it off w/ TJ surgery in 2010. McGeary [23] has failed, so far, to live up to expectations and has never advanced beyond A-ball in 6 seasons. Cue the Muttley jpegs...
