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.

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.
Apr 5 - 5:57 PM

Tyler Glasnow struck out five batters in three innings but allowed three runs in the process versus the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He was pitching in relief despite being awarded the final spot in the Pirates' rotation yesterday. He gave up six hits, one of which was a two-run bomb by Melvin Upton. Glasnow's spring results have not been good in terms of run prevention -- a 6.23 ERA in 17 1/3 innings -- but his 28 strikeouts clearly show how dominant he can be.
Apr 1 - 5:22 PM

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle announced Friday that Tyler Glasnow will open the regular season as the fifth starter in the rotation.

Glasnow didn't pitch particularly well in Grapefruit League action, compiling a 5.65 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 23/6 K/BB ratio over 14 1/3 innings. He's got plenty of talent, but his poor command will lead to very inconsistent results. He's worth a flier in the late rounds of mixed league drafts.
Mar 31 - 10:39 PM

Tyler Glasnow gave up three runs -- two earned -- and punched out nine batters in four innings as the Pirates beat the Tigers 5-4 on Saturday.

Perhaps most importantly he walked only one batter. Glasnow has endured major difficulties with the base-on-balls in his young career but strikeouts have never been a problem. It remains to be seen whether he will head north as a member of the Pirates' starting rotation or will begin the season at Triple-A. The elite prospect registered a 1.87 ERA with 133 strikeouts in 110 2/3 innings at Triple-A last year.
Mar 25 - 6:25 PM

Tyler Glasnow allowed just one run in four innings while notching five punchouts in a 13-8 win over the Phillies.

He gave up four hits and two walks. The 23-year-old top prospect needed a strong effort like this to keep himself in contention for a big league rotation slot. The tall righthander has no trouble generating strikeouts but has struggled with walks throughout his career. If he can find a way to refine his control he could be a front of the rotation starter. He put up a 4.24 ERA in 23 1/3 innings with the Pirates last year after posting an elite 1.87 ERA in 20 starts at Triple-A.
Mar 18 - 5:04 PM

Tyler Glasnow was tagged for five runs in 2 2/3 innings by the Braves on Monday.

Glasnow always figured to open 2017 in Triple-A, but his brilliant spring debut, when he struck out six of the seven Orioles he faced, gave some hope that he could leapfrog the other candidates for the Pirates' rotation. That seems highly unlikely now.
Mar 13 - 5:21 PM

Tyler Glasnow was hit hard by the Dominican Republic squad on Wednesday, giving up six runs in 2 1/3 innings of relief.

There's no shame in getting roughed up by a lineup of All-Stars. Still, it wasn't a very good sign that Glasnow walked four batters along the way. He was dominant in his first outing of the spring and adequate in his second one, but he remains something of a long shot to serve as the Pirates' fifth starter.
Mar 8 - 4:55 PM

Tyler Glasnow fanned six of the seven Orioles he faced in his two innings Sunday.

Wow. Glasnow was facing regulars, too, with only one exception (Ryan Flaherty is filling in for the injured J.J. Hardy). Glasnow entered camp as a long shot for a rotation spot after spending much of the second half on the shelf with shoulder woes, but he's a top-notch talent with huge upside. He can force the Pirates to carry him with a big spring.
Feb 26 - 4:03 PM

Tyler Glasnow will not be guaranteed a spot in the Pirates' rotation to begin 2017.

Glasnow posted a 4.24 ERA and 24/13 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings with the Pirates this season. He misses plenty of bats, but the control is a work in progress and the best thing for him could be to get some more seasoning in the minors. "The ceiling is so high, but there's clearly some work that remains," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said at the recent GM Meetings. "If he pitches the way he's capable of, that's a very exciting addition to the rotation. He's absolutely in the mix." As of now, Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon project to lead the rotation while Chad Kuhl should be in position for another spot. If the Pirates add another starter from the outside, that would leave Glasnow competing with the likes of Drew Hutchison, Trevor Williams, and Steven Brault for one spot.

Tyler Glasnow fired five innings of one-run ball in a loss to the Cardinals on Friday.

Glasgow only gave up one hit, but it was a big one, as Jedd Gyorko slugged a solo homer in the third inning. It was enough to put him in line for the loss. Glasgow walked four batters and threw 42 out of 79 pitches for strikes, but he also struck out four batters and showed improved velocity. The 23-year-old posted a 4.24 ERA and 24/13 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings in his first taste of the majors this season. He’s an intriguing talent for the long-term, but the control remains a concern.

Tyler Glasnow gave up four runs -- three earned -- over three innings Sunday in the Pirates' loss to the Nationals.

It was the third major league start for Glasnow, who had been operating out of the Bucs' bullpen since his early-September return from a shoulder injury. He gave up seven hits and walked one. It's not clear if there is another start in store for the youngster.
