The Nats got him with Gio. It sounds like he is a power arm, but I can't find any scouting reports.
the last power arm we got from the As worked out real well.
i can't tell if this is sarcasm because if it is then you are mistaken
Nats also get Robert Gilliam RHP in deal FB 92-95 w chance of avg slider back of rotation starter not hype name but more upside than Milone
thanks. Hopefully, Menhart can help him in Harrisburg. I am not worried about that ERA in the Cali league.
H-Rod blows, zdk.
Is he related to Terry Gilliam?
Did you really just use ERA to claim a relief pitcher had a good year?
okay sometimes he was dominant and other times he was a pile of crap
Law says Gilliam is filler, doesn't impact the deal in his view at all.
Gilliam has three things going for him: arm strength, control and a feel for three pitches. He finished third in the California League this season with both 156 strikeouts and 164 1/3 innings, and he's more than just a throw-in for Washington. Gilliam sits in the 92-94 mph range and while his slider and changeup grade as below-average presently, both could become average offerings with further refinement. That could mean a future in the bullpen, but it also gives him an outside shot at a future as a mid-rotation starter.
