So the projections are still not 100% sold on this year's breakout quite yet. That doesn't mean the game devs are doing it on purpose. I'm sure if he keeps pitching well, his card will continue to improve, and next year's card will be better. What more do you want?
I guess Giolito's ratings are what they are because he is no longer a prospect and has no track record of major league success.
