Tyler Glasnow ready for his season debut
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/14) Pirates pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow will make his season debut Friday at Class A Bradenton.
Glasnow missed the beginning of the season due to a back injury, but has been able to progress during extended spring games. Glasnow was rated as the 46th best prospect in the game at the start of the year, according to Baseball America.
Confidence in changeup fueling Tyler Glasnow's breakout
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/10/13) Pirates starting pitcher prospect Tyler Glasnow tossed a career-best six scoreless innings Tuesday for Class A West Virginia, improving to 5-2. He allowed three hits and one walk, while striking out seven.
"I felt good in my bullpen before [the game]," Glasnow said, per MLB.com. "I was trying to slow my tempo down. I feel like the first inning of a lot of my games have just been kind of fast-paced, just trying to get through it. Today, everything felt good and slow. I felt like I could work with my offspeed [stuff] more."
Glasnow has a 2.48 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 17 starts. He also has 110 strikeouts in 76 1/3 innings. Glasnow, who is considered the Pirates' 17th-best prospect by MLB.com, is 5-5 with a 2.28 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 29 career outings (28 starts). He is also striking out 12.1 batters per nine innings.
"It's like night and day from the beginning of the season or from last year," he said "These past seven or eight starts, I've been working with our pitching coach, Jeff Johnson, and he's changed my whole my mindset on changeups. I feel just as confident, if not more confident, in my changeup than my fastball some games."
|2014 summary: Tyler Glasnow, whose raw ability was evident even two years ago, took another step forward last year, dominating high Class A to the tune of a 1.74 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 11.4 strikeouts per nine innings -- and that was with him walking 4.1 per nine. He was practically untouchable otherwise, allowing a .174 batting average.|
Playing time status: Glasnow should continue to shred the minors with the kind of stuff he has, but his control is enough of an issue for the Pirates to proceed cautiously. Still, if he improves as much in that area this year as he did last year, lowering his walk rate from 4.9 per nine, who knows what could happen?
2015 outlook: Glasnow's 6-foot-7 frame gives him a release point not unlike Randy Johnson's, making his already fast fastball seem even faster. That's one of the many reasons to be excited about him long-term. For this year, though, you can probably ignore him.
