June 9, 2010
Height: 6'3" Weight: 185 DOB: 08/22/1989 Bats: Right Throws: Right
Quick Hit: DeJiulio has a four pitch mix led by a low 90s fastball, though has had health problems the last two years. Last year he battled mononucleosis which limited his time on the mound, and this year he sat out the last three months of the college season with some kind of ailment which was the result of some problems with some medication he was taking. He is signed on to attend and play for the University of Florida next season. He was selected in the 44th round of the 2009 Draft by the Cubs, but obviously did not sign.
Signing Update (June 11): DeJiulio is currently pitching for Duluth in the Northwoods League. He missed the final three months of his college season after suffering from an ailment which came about due to some medication he was taking. He has a firm commitment to go to Florida in the fall, and unless something surprising happens he is all but certain to pass on signing with the Indians and instead become a Gator and take his chances in the draft next year.
