09/04/2010 - Accelerated Infield Weekend
Gino is a (2012) 1B with large, solid frame that is well suited for his position and shows projection as he continues to polish and firm up. Foot work around the bag is a plus and he consistently showed the abilities to pick balls out of the dirt, saving throws. He shows good body control but needs to work on presenting glove action more down and out front as he breaks down sooner. Throws are accurate but needs to get on a long toss program to aid in further developing more arm strength. Giglio showed a good feel for his position and is very coachable. With 2 years to further develop, Gino has time and room to continue to grow.
