Baseball: Lucas Giolito reinjures pitching elbow

August 21, 2012 |  7:30 am

Former Harvard-Westlake pitcher Lucas Giolito has reinjured his pitching elbow, according to a report by ESPN.

He made his pro debut in the minors for the Washington Nationals on Aug. 14. He was a first-round pick of the Nationals and signed for $2.95 million after missing most of his senior year because of an elbow injury.

He may need Tommy John surgery depending on his doctor evaluation.
