A few others that fit the top prospect who struggled that has a chance to put it together, Taijuan Walker, Alex Reyes, Dylan Bundy, Justus Sheffield. I have very little confidence in any of them actually doing it outside of Bundy and even he is a long shot. 

 

My favorite is probably Corbin Burnes if he gets a spot in the rotation. 

Good list that fits the "Giolito profile". Reyes could do it he wasn't broken all the time. 

I wish Rodon would do it, but he breaks like Reyes and has command issues. 

Keller (as mentioned earlier) is actually a good choice too. His ERA was horrific last year.

Good thing too: When he does he will make Giolito's start of career look Cy Young level

How about Spencer Turnbull?

Lost a LOT of games last year.. BUT has some good stuff and started off pretty good. 
This will be just his second full year in the majors.. I know he wasn't a top prospect like Giolito.. but Stranger Things...

I really, really like Frankie Montas this year.  I think he will have a huge season and a major upward trajectory to his career.  He's nasty and underrated in my opinion.

has a career sub-4 ERA and was 9-2 with a 2.63 ERA and almost a 9 K/9 statline last year until he was suspended.. who is underrating him? Not seeing any struggles there. But yes, he should bounce back and I won't be surprised if he finished close to 200K's/3.5ish ERA.

According to NFBC he's the #32 pitcher off the board on average.  I think that is ridiculously low for his talent and ability level.  He's improved his body significantly...I think he's a steal considering that he's going outside the top 100.

I don't care about how much he can dead lift, but his body looks great in this video.

Just hope he keeps the PED's out of his system this time.

If his arm holds up, and that a big if with the angels, i can see Canning turning it around. He's gotten a better manager and pitching coach to work with this year. Plus he has the stuff to dominate, 4 above average pitches with good command.

 

Kopech is another name to watch for.

 

Bundy might be a rebound guy, from what i've hard in Spring Training 1.0. His Fb was hitting in the mid 90s constantly.
