Tyler Glasnow is not expected to be called up on Tuesday.
Jameson Taillon ran out to the bullpen during Monday's extra-inning loss to the Dodgers, but he didn't end up being used. Perhaps Glasnow would have gotten the call if Taillon ended up pitching, but the Pirates will gain an extra year of service time if they wait a few more days before calling him up. Glasnow owns a ridiculous 1.79 ERA and 113/27 K/BB ratio over 75 1/3 innings since his demotion to Triple-A in June. He's worth a stash for the stretch run in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.

Pirates optioned RHP Tyler Glasnow to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Glasnow allowed seven runs -- six earned -- over four innings Friday in a loss to the Marlins, ballooning his season ERA to 7.45. He'll work on his craft against a lower level of competition, with Jameson Taillon (cancer) returning from the disabled list to fill the rotation vacancy in Pittsburgh.
Jun 10 - 12:49 PM

Tyler Glasnow was tagged for seven runs -- six earned -- in four innings by the Marlins in a loss Friday.

We've said it before, but we can't imagine Glasnow will stay in the rotation after this. He remains a really good bet for the long haul, but his ERA is back up to 7.45 now and he's had just one quality start in his last six outings (and three in 12 starts for the year).
Jun 10 - 12:19 AM

Tyler Glasnow allowed four earned runs, five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a road loss against the Mets on Saturday.

Glasnow struggled with his command and location, posting just 49 strikes on 89 pitches. He'll be happy if he doesn't see the Mets again this season, as he is 0-2 with an 8.10 ERA in two starts. Of course, he hasn't exactly lit the world afire against other teams, either.
Jun 4 - 12:58 AM

Tyler Glasnow's troublesome 2017 season continued on Sunday as he allowed five runs on eight hits over five innings in a loss to the Mets.

Glasnow struck out three on the evening and didn't walk a batter. He kept the Mets' offense at bay through the first three innings, but they broke through for a pair in the fourth on a two-run double by Asdrubal Cabrera and tacked on three more the following frame. The rookie hurler now sports a cringe-inducing 6.95 ERA and 1.90 WHIP on the season. He'll hope for better results in a rematch against the Mets in New York on Saturday.
May 28 - 11:26 PM

Tyler Glasnow held the Braves to two runs over six innings Tuesday.

Glasnow surrendered nine hits – including a solo home run to Matt Adams – and also walked a pair, but he managed to hold Atlanta relatively in check. He also did his part and then some at the plate, picking up three singles in three at-bats. Glasnow remains volatile for fantasy purposes, as his penchant for free passes can result in blowup starts at any time. He faces the Mets on Sunday.
May 24 - 2:06 AM

Tyler Glasnow allowed four runs -- two earned -- over five innings Thursday in a win over the Nationals.

Glasnow was backed by 10 runs on 13 hits from the Pittsburgh offense to pick up his second win of the season. He struck out six but walked three and surrendered three hits, including a solo homer to Daniel Murphy in the top of the second inning. Glasnow will carry a 7.34 ERA into his next start on the road versus the Braves.
May 18 - 3:58 PM

Tyler Glasnow was lit up for seven runs over 2 1/3 innings by the Diamondbacks on Friday.

The Pirates have been patient with pretty much everyone this year, but Glasnow is due for another stint in Triple-A after adjusting his delivery and opening up with a 7.98 ERA in seven starts.
May 13 - 1:16 AM

Tyler Glasnow yielded four runs -- three earned -- over 6 1/3 innings Sunday as the Pirates fell to the Brewers.

Glasnow struck out six batters, but he also issued two walks and surrendered six hits, including a Travis Shaw home run. The young right-hander holds an ugly 6.33 ERA through 27 innings (six starts) this season with a matchup at power-friendly Chase Field coming next.
May 7 - 4:59 PM

Tyler Glasnow picked up his first win with six innings of three-run ball Tuesday against the Reds.

Glasnow helped his own cause with a two-run single and a bases loaded walk. He actually walked twice in the game. Glasnow is still sporting a 6.97 ERA through five starts. He has tons of upside, but he needs to keep showing steady improvement in order to keep his rotation spot.
May 2 - 10:32 PM

Tyler Glasnow's struggles continued as he gave up three runs in 3 1/3 frames against the Cubs on Wednesday.

He was pulled after allowing six hits and four walks on 89 pitches, only 46 of which were strikes. He loaded the bases in the second inning and ended up hitting a batter to gift the Cubs a run. Glasnow now has a 7.98 ERA with 13 walks in 14 2/3 innings through his first four starts. On the bright side his 17 strikeouts clearly show his potential if he can develop some control. His high ERA and inability to go deep into his starts might soon force the Pirates to replace him in their rotation.
Apr 27 - 12:32 AM

Tyler Glasnow yielded three runs (one earned) over 4 2/3 innings Friday against the Yankees.

The final two runs were unearned after an error by Josh Harrison. While Glasnow failed to make it out of the fifth inning, he walked just two batters while striking out five. He still owns an ugly 7.94 ERA through three starts, but he has shown improved control since his disastrous season debut. He’ll try again for his first win of the season in a tough matchup against the Cubs next week.
Apr 21 - 10:41 PM

Tyler Glasnow was pounded for six runs -- four earned -- in five innings but avoided a loss as the Pirates came back late to beat the Cubs on Saturday.

It got ugly fast as he gave up four runs in the first inning with the big blow being a two-run bomb by Kris Bryant. He gave up another two runs in the third inning before digging in his heels to make it through five innings on 99 pitches. As bad as this start was it was much better than his first one, in which he gave up five runs in just 1 2/3 innings to the Reds on Monday. He now owns a 12.15 ERA with eight strikeouts (good) and seven walks (bad) in 6 2/3 innings. It remains to be seen how much patience the Pirates will display with their 23-year-old elite prospect. He has a great arm but very little control over it.
Apr 15 - 9:59 PM

Tyler Glasnow was yanked after giving up five runs and walking five in 1 2/3 innings against the Reds on Monday.

Glasnow is wild under the best of circumstances, and pitching on eight days' rest after his original start Saturday was pushed back by a rainout was hardly the best of circumstances. The Pirates will show some patience here, and fantasy owners should do so, as well. There aren't many better arms in the NL.
Apr 10 - 11:11 PM

Tyler Glasnow will make his first start of the 2017 season against the Braves on Saturday.

Glasnow showcased his big arm with 28 strikeouts across 17 1/3 spring frames. He did allow 12 runs in that space, but despite his 6.23 ERA, managed to win the fifth spot in the rotation. The 23-year-old right-hander is worth a speculative flier in deeper mixed-league formats if he is still out on the waiver wire.
