Baseball America on "How Lucas Giolito's Injury Could Affect Draft"

Pretty interesting read that I found on Giolito

http://www.baseballamerica.com/blog/draft/2012/03/how-lucas-giolitos-injury-could-affect-draft/

" Giolito seems like an unlikely fit for some of the teams with the lower bonus pools such as the Marlins, Phillies, Indians, Nationals, Yankees, Giants, Braves, Rays, Diamondbacks, Tigers and Angels. However, his injury could be a blessing in disguise for the Cubs, who pick sixth; the Padres, picking seventh; or the Pirates at eight. Those teams were aggressive in the draft last year and now have a shot at getting a player they could only dream of getting last week.

"The Pirates have spent the most on the draft of any team over the last three years, and the Padres spent the eighth-most in the draft last year, highlighted by the $3 million bonus the team gave catcher (and UCLA commit) Austin Hedges in the second round."
