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.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle announced Friday that Tyler Glasnow will start for the Pirates on Sunday against the Nationals.

It will be the third start of the right-hander's young career. The 23-year-old hurler owns a 4.11 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 15/8 K/BB ratio across 15 1/3 innings with the big league club this season. He's worth a look as a streaming option.

Tyler Glasnow pitched three scoreless innings, striking out four, in relief of Ivan Nova against the Reds on Sunday.

The Pirates haven't ruled out giving Glasnow another start this season, and the fact that he threw 55 pitches today probably helps his case. Still, he's not on the schedule right now.

Pirates recalled RHP Tyler Glasnow from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Glasnow hasn't pitched in the majors since he landed on the disabled list with shoulder discomfort in late July. The promising young right-hander allowed one run with 11 strikeouts in 8 2/3 innings during two recent starts in Triple-A, though he also walked seven batters. It's unclear how the Pirates intend to use him down the stretch.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Monday that Tyler Glasnow will make one start with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Glasnow struck out three and walked three over three scoreless innings in a minor league rehab appearance on Saturday and was officially activated and then optioned to Triple-A on Monday. He doesn't appear likely to rejoin the Pirates until next week. The young right-hander originally landed on the disabled list in July due to shoulder discomfort.

Pirates activated RHP Tyler Glasnow from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Indianapolis.

This might be nothing more than a procedural move with major league rosters due to expand September 1. Glasnow walked three but struck out six over three scoreless innings last Monday with Double-A Altoona. It's not clear whether his next start will be in Indianapolis or with Pittsburgh. The talented 23-year-old been out since July 24 because of right shoulder discomfort.

Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) will move his rehab assignment to Triple-A Indianapolis.

He walked three but struck out six over three scoreless innings Monday with Double-A Altoona. Glasnow could rejoin the Pirates' starting rotation sometime next week if his start at Triple-A goes smoothly. The 23-year-old right-hander has been on the disabled list since July 24 because of shoulder discomfort. He had a 5.40 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 7/5 K/BB ratio over his first two major league starts spanning 8 1/3 innings.

Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) worked three scoreless innings Monday with Double-A Altoona.

Glasnow walked three but struck out six in the promising rehab outing. He was lifted from a start at Altoona nine days ago after some coaches there noticed irregularities in his delivery, likely brought on by the right shoulder discomfort that sent him to the MLB disabled list on July 24. All was fine on that front Monday. "As the outing went on, I think his command improved," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday. "There was a little spray command in the first inning. He did throw all three pitches, his fastball — velocities were 93 to 95 (miles per hour) — he threw his curve ball, he threw his changeup. He threw his changeup more than anticipated, and they were pleased. As I said, as the outing got longer, he got better. That was a plus."

Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) will resume his rehab assignment with Double-A Altoona on Monday.

He's slated to throw four innings and/or 65 pitches. Glasnow had a setback just a week ago when he felt renewed soreness in his right shoulder during a rehab start, but the Pirates are obviously convinced it was a minor setback. It's been nearly a month since Glasnow first injured his shoulder.

Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Tuesday without issue.

Glasnow was lifted from a minor league rehab start Sunday at Double-A Altoona after experiencing discomfort in his injured right shoulder, but the hope is it was just routine soreness. The young right-hander has been on the disabled list since July 24 and there is no timetable for his return to the major leagues. He'll likely try another bullpen session later this week.
Wed, Aug 17, 2016 02:30:00 PM

Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) was evaluated Monday and will throw a bullpen session Tuesday with Double-A Altoona.

Glasnow left a minor league rehab start after 55 pitches on Sunday after experiencing some discomfort, but that he's going to throw again so quickly suggests that it's not a major concern. It's unclear when he'll be ready to resume a rehab assignment, but there should be more clarity after Tuesday's bullpen session.

Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) is headed back to Pittsburgh for a reevaluation after experiencing discomfort Sunday in a rehab start with Double-A Altoona.

Glasnow was scheduled to go four innings or 65-70 pitches, but he was lifted after throwing 56 pitches over just three innings. "We saw that he was feeling uncomfortable and was doing some strange stuff with his arm," Altoona manager Joey Cora told reporters after the game. That obviously doesn't sound good. Glasnow has been on the disabled list since July 24 with a right shoulder issue and may now have to completely restart his rehab. That could put the rest of his 2016 season in jeopardy.

Tyler Glasnow (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Sunday with Double-A Altoona.

Glasnow is expected to go four innings or 65-70 pitches in the outing, which means there will be an additional rehab start next week before he is cleared to return to the Pirates' rotation. The 22-year-old rookie right-hander has been on the disabled list since July 24 with discomfort in his right shoulder. He's only made two major league starts -- one on July 7 against the Cardinals and the other on July 23 versus Philly.
