Nationals set to recall top prospect Lucas Giolito

WASHINGTON (AP) The Nationals planned to recall top prospect Lucas Giolito to make his major league debut Tuesday against the New York Mets.

The No. 16 pick in the 2012 amateur draft, Giolito is 5-3 with a 3.17 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 71 innings at Double-A Harrisburg this season. The 21-year-old right-hander is ranked the No. 1 prospect in the Nationals' organization by Baseball America.

"He's ready for the task," manager Dusty Baker said Monday.
