Date:

Pirates trainer Todd Tomczyk said that Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) could pick up a baseball "in the coming days."

That "in the coming days" comment might not be the most concrete assessment, but regardless of the particulars, Glasnow's health has been improving since he was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury on July 24. The Pirates figure to play matters cautiously with their stud 22-year-old right-hander and there is no current timetable for his return.
Jul 27 - 5:36 PM

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that Tyler Glasnow's shoulder might have been bothering him before his start on Saturday.

Glasnow was pulled in the third inning against the Phillies. The good news is that Huntington thinks the injury was caught before it got too bad, although the GM noted that Glasnow should've alerted the staff sooner that he wasn't 100 percent. Glasnow hasn't undergone any tests and it doesn't appear at this point that he will, so he might not be sidelined for terribly long.
Jul 24 - 1:46 PM

Pirates placed RHP Tyler Glasnow on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

Glasnow departed Saturday's start against the Phillies with a sore shoulder. It's unclear at this point whether he might be dealing with any structural issues, but obviously the Pirates don't want to take any chances here. The club could offer more on a potential timetable for Glasnow later Sunday.
Jul 24 - 10:32 AM

Tyler Glasnow was pulled from his second major league start Saturday due to shoulder discomfort.

Shoulder troubles rarely end well, but there's no word yet as to the severity of this particular issue. Glasnow figures to see a specialist within the next couple of days. He gave up two runs in three-plus innings Saturday versus the Phillies, hitting two batters and walking three.
Jul 23 - 6:28 PM

Tyler Glasnow left his start Saturday against the Phillies with an apparent injury.

Glasnow had hit two Phillies batters and gave up a run in both the first and second. He exited with zero outs in the top of the fourth. This was the 22-year-old top prospect's second start in the major leagues.
Jul 23 - 5:46 PM

Pirates recalled RHP Tyler Glasnow from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Glasnow will make his second start with the Pirates on Saturday at home against the Phillies. If he pitches well, he could make a case for remaining in the rotation for the remainder of the season.
Jul 23 - 1:30 PM

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle confirmed Friday that Tyler Glasnow will start on Saturday against the Phillies.

It will be the first start in Pittsburgh for the 22-year-old southpaw. He gave up four runs on three hits and a pair of walks over 5 1/3 innings in his major league debut against the Cardinals on July 7. If he pitches well, he could stake his claim to a rotation spot for the remainder of the season.
Jul 22 - 10:13 PM

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Thursday that Tyler Glasnow is "definitely one of the guys we’re talking about" when it comes to who will start on Saturday.

Glasnow had been listed as Triple-A Indianapolis' starter for that day, but now Chad Kuhl is listed in that spot. Kuhl is less than 10 days from being optioned, so he can't be recalled unless someone goes on the disabled list. Glasnow is looking like the heavy favorite to take the ball against the Phillies on Saturday.
Jul 22 - 10:30 AM

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that Tyler Glasnow is a "viable option" to be part of the club's post-All-Star break rotation.

Gerrit Cole (triceps) is expected back right after the break, but Jameson Taillon (shoulder) won't be ready and Chad Kuhl is a candidate to lose his spot to Glasnow. Glasnow was charged with four runs over 5 1/3 innings in his major league debut Thursday against the Cardinals, although two of the runs scored after he was pulled.
Jul 10 - 1:41 PM

Pirates optioned RHP Tyler Glasnow to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Glasnow was charged with four runs over 5 1/3 innings in his major league debut Thursday, although two of the runs scored after he was pulled. The Pirates don't need a fifth starter for a while, which is probably the main reason he's being sent back down. However, with Gerrit Cole (triceps) due back soon, there's no guarantee that Glasnow will rejoin the Pirates' rotation soon.
Jul 8 - 3:22 PM

Tyler Glasnow took a loss in his major league debut after getting charged with four runs in 5 1/3 innings.

Glasnow allowed two runs and one walk through five, so it was shaping up for a nice day. Unfortunately, the sixth started with a double, a sac bunt and his second walk of the day, getting him lifted. Arquimedes Caminero came in and immediately served up a three-run homer, ruining Glasnow's ERA. It was still a fine showing for the 22-year-old, who has battled control woes in the minors, especially of late. He'll probably get sent back down now with the All-Star break coming up, but he'll be a candidate to rejoin the rotation later this month.
Jul 7 - 5:17 PM

Pirates recalled RHP Tyler Glasnow from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Glasnow will make his major league debut Thursday afternoon at Busch Stadium in the Pirates' four-game-series finale against the Cardinals. They've already taken the first three. There are concerns about Glasnow's command and lack of a reliable third pitch, but he has used his elite fastball and curve to produce a 1.78 ERA and 113 strikeouts in 96 innings this season at the Triple-A level. The 22-year-old is a must-own in all standard fantasy formats as he arrives in the bigs.
Jul 7 - 11:18 AM

Tyler Glasnow will make his major league debut Thursday against the Cardinals.

The initial report had him debuting this weekend against the Cubs. St. Louis presents an easier matchup for the 22-year-old right-hander, though not that much easier. Glasnow was sporting a 1.78 ERA and 113 strikeouts through 96 innings this season at Triple-A Indianapolis and should be owned in most standard fantasy leagues as he arrives in the bigs. We'd probably go ahead and start him at Busch Stadium, too.
Jul 6 - 10:27 AM

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Pirates will call up top pitching prospect Tyler Glasnow for a start this weekend against the Cubs.

That'll be a tough first assignment for the 22-year-old right-hander, but there's obviously still a ton to like here from a fantasy perspective. Glasnow, a consensus top-15 prospect leading into the 2016 season, has registered a lights-out 1.78 ERA with 113 strikeouts in 96 innings this year at Triple-A Indianapolis. Control remains an issue and he's still working on a third pitch, but Glasnow has a great fastball and curve and should be owned in most standard fantasy leagues. He probably has around 60-70 innings left for the year.
