Scouting the 2017 Draft: Michael Gigliotti

Michael Gigliotti, OF, College(Lipscomb).  B-L, T-L.  6'2", 175 lbs.

2015 Lipscomb:  .336/.409/.448, 5 2B, 3 3B, 5 HR, 17 SB, 25 BB, 31 K, 232 AB.
2015 Valley League:  .280/.349/.320, 2B, 3B, 9 SB, 9 BB, 9 K, 75 AB.
2016 Lipscomb:  .301/.407/.461, 12 2B, 5 3B, 3 HR, 15 SB, 31 BB, 35 K, 193 AB.
2016 Cape Cod League:  .310/.404/.426, 8 2B, 2 3B, 2 HR, 11 SB, 23 BB, 38 K, 155 AB.

Michael Gigliotti is a true CF with current gap power and lots of room to gain size and strength.  He has shown elite on-base skills and has led all of college baseball in bunt hits over the last 2 years.  As you can see, he has performed well in wood bat summer leagues although his K's spiked a bit in the CCL.  He definitely has a lot of the qualities the Giants look for in a hitter, up-the-middle defense, contact and on-base skills and gap power.  Given approximately equal talent, I think the Giants will and should favor pitching in the draft, but if they think Gigliotti is the BPA, they could grab him at #19.

  1. the giants just signed aaron hill. when he was with the Dbacks he was pretty good. what do you guys think the giants are trying to do with so many utility infielders? you think they are thinking about using the 10-day disable list a lot to give craw and panik a breathers? i'm totally confused by their desire to sign so many veteran utility guys.....

    1. Man, I just saw that. Scooped... That'll teach me to be working on my Mighty Jingles Captain....
